For a city outside the UK, Copenhagen has a thriving network of pubs. Some offer live music, others bar meals, but what all have in common is a loyal band of regulars who come not just for the wide range of on-tap beers but also for the chance to have a friendly chat across the bar.
There are a number of Irish pubs in Copenhagen, but The Globe
is our no.1 choice due to its authenticity, approachability and local vibe. Sports-obsessed beer drinkers will immediately feel at home here, with everything from local league soccer games and American football to hurling broadcast live. Another genuine Irish pub is nearby Bloomsday Bar
: A friendly spot for a pint, a chat and a chance to watch the big game-as well as the popular twice-weekly folk music sessions.
On-screen sports, quiz nights and live music are just some of the pastimes on offer in Copenhagen's lively pubs. A stone's throw from Rådhuspladsen, Drop Inn
offers live music every night; and at the far end of Nyhavn, Scottish pub McJoy's
combines regular folk music sessions with upscale bar meals.
Beer connoisseurs looking for a good pint should check out Charlie's Bar,
the only bar in Denmark to have receive the coveted Caske Marque
award of the British breweries: Or perhaps the bar of Vesterbro microbrewery Mikkeller
, where 20 award-winning brews from the bar's own brewery are joined by a selection of other global beers.
For a piece of history, why not pay a visit to Bo-Bi Bar
; this quirky, slightly Bohemian hang-out can boast of having the first bar counter in Copenhagen, brought back by a sailor who had been impressed with the bar design of New York's drinking dens.
