Where to find the best nightlife in Copenhagen depends on what you fancy — whether you’re looking for classical music, jazz or just a nice cocktail, you’re sure to find a place that meets your needs in this compact Scandinavian city.
For opera in an elegant environment, Forbes Travel Guide editors say don’t miss the striking Copenhagen Opera House, which opened in January 2005 to much fanfare. Look for half-price tickets for unsold seats starting at 6 p.m. on the day of the performance.
If jazz is more your taste, Copenhagen offers venues including Jazzhus Montmartre, a historic venue that brings in lots of Danish and international talent, and Copenhagen Jazzhouse, featuring everything from classic to modern jazz.
Looking for a cool place to have a drink? The up-and-coming Meatpacking District has several bars including Karriere Bar, designed by local artists. Or if you like you cocktails in a speakeasy atmosphere, Ruby in the central Indre By area and Union Bar in Nyhavn are both behind unmarked doors and feature well-mixed drinks in trendy settings.
