I’ll admit the weather could have been slightly better, but if by some miracle you manage to drag yourself away from the tables, Copenhagen still has a lot to offer. Culture wise, there was one guy interested in hearing where the best museums are, but since he got sick and can’t make it, I’ll go straight to the important stuff.
For lunch, which will no doubt be your breakfast time, Denmark is known for its open sandwiches on black bread. Personally I love it, but can understand if there are one or two of you who find it a bit strange considering they have never ever tried it before. On the other hand, if you feel adventurous my favourite place is just across the bridge and called Tivoli Hallen. It has a website that strangely enough is found at www.tivolihallen.dk. You’ll find all information you need there.
For normal food my favourite is Atlas, which can be found at Larsbjørnsstræde 18 Kbh K and has phone number 3315 0352. I cannot see anyone regretting this choice. If you busted in the evening and feel dreadful, Umami and MASH cheer you up. Umami is a Japanese kitchen and can be found at www.restaurantumami.dk, and MASH is one of the best steakhouses and can be found at www.mashsteak.dk.
You can personally slap Johnny Lodden in the face if you leave one of those two restaurants disappointed! Both of them are not for you if you are on a tight budget, but since you just lost 35,000dk with your main event buy-in, I’m guessing the best way to go out is with a big bang.
The atmosphere in the city centre is great, and you can’t really go wrong with the cafes or shopping. If you take the main shopping street and then get lost on the sidewalks, you’ll still have a great time so long as you remembered your winter coat (the Finns should remember their summer coat).
As for nightclubs, I can tell you what was hot 15 years ago when I was the man on the dance floors, but I don’t think that is going to help you now. So I asked around, and the place you would want to go to is Zen. But arrive early unless you plan on having a great time standing in line outside.
Good luck and I hope this one time is your one time.
