Copenhagen's club scene may not be on the same level as Berlin or London, but the Danish capital has its fair share of clubs for both the hardcore party people as well as those feeling like hitting the town.
Time was that Vega
would have been our no.1 choice, but with its regular nightclub nights abandoned in favor of large monthly parties it fell to second place. For regular party goers, the smaller Ideal Bar in Vega's street-level offers free entry and regular clubs Wednesday thru Saturday.
Likewise, popular clubs of yesteryear like Nørrebro's Rust
and jet set party place Nasa
have lost much of their former glory. With both Nørrebro's underground and the white, minimalist Boltens Gård club both out, nightclubs tailored for the over-30s are most definitely in. Nord
, close to Vesterport Station, is this kind of club. Its Tivoli
after-parties, free to Tivoli's Friday night rock concert guests, are especially popular.
Not for the choosy, downtown favorite Diskotek IN
was the first to bring the free bar concept to Copenhagen. As you might expect, the crowd here come more for the excessive drinking than for serious music.
If you're looking for non-commercial dance music and electronica, Culture Box
is the place, with a long list of international as well as local DJs having played here. Even more offbeat is party boat Stubnitz:
It isn't always in town, but when it sets down anchor it's to host some of the coolest parties in the city.
Looking for something a little more specialized? Club Mambo
are both great for Latin rhythms, while Copenhagen Jazzhouse
transforms into weekend nightclub once the live concerts have ended. The Rock
is the place for those who like to-well, rock, and gays and straights alike enjoy the hedonistic atmosphere of clubs K3
