Copenhagen has a long history in the jazz music scene and therefore the city brims with music venues that host jazz live concerts and jam sessions all night long even during the weekdays.

Niels Lan Doky International Jazz Collective

Niels Lan Doky International Jazz Collective (formerly known as The Standard Jazz Club) re-opened just a few days ago and aside from the new name they also have a new concert venue; the “Vineyard” room at Hotel Danmark. Every night of the week, small and intimate jazz shows will be taking place in the historic room that during the 60s and 70s hosted American jazz expats and Danish musicians. Moreover, once a month larger pop-up shows will be taking place in other venues including the National Museum of Denmark. As the name implies, the organization’s music director is Niels Lan Doky, one of the most renowned Danish jazz musicians.

Located just a five-minute walk from the National Museum of Denmark and close to the Town Hall Square, Mojo Blues Bar fills the city center with blues tunes. Concerts take place every night of the week with national and international artists taking over the stage. When concerts end, DJs step into the place and keep the vibe alive until the wee hours. Its cozy and laid-back atmosphere makes it a real favorite among locals.
