Welcome to Copenhagen’s Meatpacking District, the place where pink neon signs brighten the nights, popular DJs spread their tunes and booze never runs out. Tourists always come back and Copenhageners have at least one crazy story to tell from a night out in the area’s bars. Which place will be the setting for your story?

With live concerts, upbeat DJ Sets and its monthly gay events, Jolene knows how to get Copenhageners to leave their couches and hit the dance floor every week from Thursday to Sunday. The neon pink signs along with the sparkling disco balls hanging from the ceiling hint that Jolene isn’t a place for a relaxed night out. The offbeat bar attracts a mixed and large crowd that never leaves the place before closing time.

NOHO is one of those places that when you step in for the first time you just can’t stop looking at the interior design. Classy furniture, impressive chandeliers, peculiar paintings on the walls plus the pink-coloured plants on the ceiling create a classy but at the same time unpretentious atmosphere. And that’s only one of the reasons locals head to NOHO for an early drink during weekdays, on a Saturday night out or even for a laid-back Sunday brunch. The top-notch cocktails, gourmet snacks and late-night parties attract customers as well.

The American brewery 3 Floyds and the Danish brewery Mikkeller joined forces to create the ultimate space for all those who know how to appreciate a glass of quality beer plus an authentic Texas barbecue. At noon you’ll see people from surrounding work places taking a break at WarPig’s stands by the windows while tables get reserved from early evening. Beer never runs out here but food does. So if you want to taste a meal from the chef that has cooked for Slipknot and Van Halen, make sure to head in early.

In Bakken you’ll discover upcoming international DJs, listen to local bands, see how Copenhageners in their 20s like to party, and you’ll also dance your heart out until the wee hours. The vibrant club that also serves as a live venue, pop-up eatery and gallery has the reputation of hosting some of the city’s craziest parties boosted by the cheap beers and the city’s hipster crowd.

Mesteren & Lærlingen is Meatpacking district’s oldest bodega. And like in every bodega that respects itself, the beers are cheap, the atmosphere is cosy and the smell of smoke lingers in the air. The clientele runs the gamut from students to 60-year-old locals and stylish Bohemians in their 30s. A great place for mingling with locals while sharing one of the outdoors wooden tables.

KB18 is an underground club with graffiti-painted walls and a small wooden stage where live concerts and DJ sets take place all year round. Known among the city’s night owls and music lovers as the place to head for a night filled with good music and dancing until the early morning hours, KB18 often has a long waiting line. But once you enter the place you’ll know it was worth the effort.
