An elegant option for gritty Copenhagen, the champagne bar of the palatial Hotel d’Angleterre is evolving into a meeting place for the city’s more soignée beautiful people. They take the bubbly seriously here, offering more than 200 labels, served with a choice of enticing accompaniments from caviar to tapas. DJs move in on the weekend to add a suitably cool soundtrack.
Nightlife in Copenhagen is a late affair and live gigs rarely get going on weekends until long after midnight. The city’s ever-changing range of clubs and bars caters to all tastes, though, from pop and cutting-edge dance music to world-class jazz . Copenhagen also offers a number of restaurant-to-bar 'hybrids' that change mood and function over the course of an evening. There is no one defined nightlife area, although Nyhavn, Boltens Gaard and Vesterbro are popular. Copenhagen This Week (www.ctw.dk) and Wonderful Copenhagen website (www.visitcopenhagen.com) both provide nightlife and cultural event listings.
Tickets for most cultural events and performances are sold by BilletNet (tel: 7015 6565; www.billetnet.dk), or online.
