This hip venue on the far edge of the Vesterbro neighborhood is worth the trek out of the city center: since its opening in 1996, Vega has grown from trendy nightspot to an established and reliable venue for both clubbing and for catching big name touring bands. Located in vast premises dating from the 1950s, Vega has preserved the dark, wooden decor of the era and is actually a listed building. Because of its unique design, Vega is frequently used as a film set, in photo shoots or for fashion shows. It consists of the larger concert hall Store Vega (capacity 1500), the more intimate Lille Vega (capacity 500) and the late-night Ideal Bar.
