TRIED & TESTED: KYOTO COPENHAGEN

February 18, 2011

Most striking feature:

The best Scandinavian designers under one roof. Okay, it’s easy to go directly to Malene Birger or Day Birger et Mikkelsen when you’re in the Danish capital. But it’s much better to go to Kyoto. In here you will find stuff from Acne, Mini Market, cool Adidas sneakers, Happy Socks and Best Behavior. For men and women. Unfortunately I was there for an article and needed to spot other places as well, so I didn’t have the time to buy something. This is definitely the place to go when you want to dress yourself like a Scandinavian fashion queen.

TRIED & TESTED: PATE PATE COPENHAGEN

September 7, 2010


Most striking feature:

Their winelist. It’s never ending. So for real wine enthusiastics it’s definitely the place to be. You can eat some small tapas dishes and top it off with a great wine. Paté Paté is located in the raw Meatpacking District (Vesterbrö) where you will find Bio Mio and Karriere Bar as well. The interior fits the surroundings, but it has a lively atmosphere. I walked in late at night and it was still busy.

TRIED & TESTED: BIO MIO COPENHAGEN

August 25, 2010

Most striking feature:

An organic restaurant with funny icons on the menu like ‘After Shopping Relief’, ‘vegetarian’ or ‘macho’. I quess the last one indicates that there’s spinach used in the recipe. The interior screams take-away. Not the perfect places for a romantic dinner, but perfect for a good and cheap meal. Bio Mio is located in the Vesterbrö area: the meatpacking district of Copenhagen where you’ll find cool bars and restaurants (like Karriere Bar and Pate Pate).

TRIED & TESTED: KARRIEREBAR CPH

April 24, 2010


Most striking feature:

The location. In the middle of the raw Meat Packing District of Copenhagen. Not for the light-hearted that’s for sure. If you don’t have a lack of imagination you can see the meat hanging between the cool, industrial bars that pop up. Karriere Bar is one of them. In the photo above you see how slick the interior is by day, on the image below (I took it around midnight) you see the atmosphere by night. A good place to go dancing or drink a cocktail, because the cocktaillist is thrilling.
