One of the first things to strike travellers visiting Copenhagen is how stylish most locals are – many of them have all the characteristics fitting what you’d call ‘hipster’. If you’re wondering where all these fashionable locals hangout, this guide will help you find the coolest spots.

1. Jægersborggade

Jægersborggade is known as the most hipster street in Copenhagen and not without reason. The little alley with the colourful houses that now brim with tattoo studios, hip restaurants, galleries and stylish cafes was gentrified several years ago and now is one of the top choices for hipsters, fashionistas and stylish millennials who make sure to pass by during the day for an organic juice or snack and during the evening for an early drink.

Meatpacking district in Vestebro is a hipster hangout on its own but with so many restaurants and bars a guide always comes in handy. NOHO is the place to go from morning till night; high-quality coffee, ice-cold cocktails and premium snacks and meals are served at the fancy cafe all day long. With its offbeat and classy decoration, late hours parties, with some of the city’s best DJs as well as the coolest crowd, it is no surprise that NOHO occupies a place in Copenhagen’s most hipster hangouts list.

Just a few metres away from NOHO stands Bakken, another hipster hangout in the heart of the Meatpacking district. Unlike NOHO, Bakken doesn’t have a fancy decoration or comfy couches but its industrial design decoration is part of its charm. Bakken gets packed with millennials who want to dance their heart out until the early morning hours.

4. California Kitchen

Restaurant, American, Danish, Vegetarian, Vegan

California Kitchen opened for the first time in Nørrebro, just a stone’s throw away from Dronning Louises Bro, two years ago and it instantly attracted the city’s hip foodies. Both the decoration and the menu’s healthy dishes bring a little something from California’s spirit in Denmark and locals loved the concept so much that a few days ago another California Kitchen restaurant opened in Vesterbro. The restaurant’s philosophy is to offer nutritious and tasty dishes made of organic ingredients at affordable prices; a fast-casual healthy lifestyle restaurant that aims to bring quality in Copenhagener’s dishes.

5. Urban Hostel

Urban hostel in Vesterbro is definitely one of the most hip places to stay while visiting Copenhagen and not only due to its location. It offers special events such as yoga and a tattoo studio for those who want to get a real souvenir to always remember Copenhagen. Even if you’ve already booked your stay elsewhere, worry not because Urban hostel has its own bar where locals mingle with travellers and all together enjoy live music concerts and refreshing drinks.

6. The Coffee Collective

Excellent coffee prepared by experienced baristas, typical minimalist Scandinavian design and a huge glass window offering a view to the cafe’s brewery. That’s what visitors see once they enter Coffee Collective in Frederiksberg. With its chill atmosphere and delicious beverages Coffee Collective is a great place for getting some work done or recharging your batteries before hitting the streets for discovering the city’s attractions.

Housed in a 19th century house Lidkoeb is known for its unique design and decoration. Well, its great selection of premium drinks and tasty cocktails are also a reason Copenhageners love this place so much.

8. Café Dyrehaven


Café Dyrehaven on Sønder Boulevard is known for its delicious dishes and great selection of local beers. On the hot sunny days you’ll see its wooden outdoor tables packed with locals indulging in the cafe’s delicious smørrebrød while soaking up the area’s relaxed and hip vibes.

Dronning Louises Bro

Copenhagen brims with parks and outdoor places that during the summer days are packed with locals. But if you want to be sure that you’ll meet the city’s hipster crowd Dronning Louises Bridge is the place to be. The 19th century bridge that connects Copenhagen’s city centre with Nørrebro is one of the most beautiful spots in town and undoubtedly one of Copenhageners’ favourite hangouts.
