Ruby remains the go-to example of the growing success of the Copenhagen cocktail scene. To help visitors learn more about cocktails, it holds occasional cocktail tastings, known as ‘spirit sessions,’ in its basement—a testament to the high-end and sophisticated image Ruby cultivates. The beautiful location, an eighteenth-century townhouse with a modern interior, only adds to this impression.

Named for its postal code, this chic cocktail bar on a busy shopping street was started by a local and an English expat. The vibe is that of an old-school hotel bar, so in other words, it’s cozy and classy, almost minimalist—dim lights, black couches, black walls, and a well-dressed clientele. The bartender has been named Danish Bartender of the Year twice, embodying the high quality 1105 strives for. Try the award-winning Cucumber Yum Yum, a local favorite made with gin, aquavit, raspberries, honey and cucumber.
