Copenhagen Guide | Part 4
Bierback's guide to
You can't go wrong with Nørrebro. Walking from the city centre, skipp over Dronning Louises bridge (or "the hipster bridge" as we also call it) and within minutes you have endless choices of food, shops and spots for hang outs. Nørrebro was once the rougher parts of Copenhagen, but just like Shoreditch, Kreuzberg and Södermalm, rough has become hip.
What makes Nørrebro a fantastic area to visit is the laid back vibe that is mixed with an urge to provide it's residents and visitors with the coolest of new trends. That and the beautiful green oasis that is the Assistens cemetery in the middle.
As we nowadays live in Nordvest, we're kind of just waiting for the hip wave to flow further north and we can already tell how there are more and more businesses opening up in our closest neighbourhoods. Dreaming of opening up that café combined shop one day. One day...
1. DRINK | DEPANNEUR
Griffenfeldsgade 17, 2200 Copenhagen N. Not your average convenience store. Depanneur serves up great coffee, beer, wine, snacks and vibes and is a great choice if you'd prefer to avoid the slightly busier bars at Blågårdsgade. Next to Depanneur you'll find Fætter Fætter, your go-to place for simple but delicious toasts.
2. EAT | VERDENS RUMMET
Rantzausgade 56, 2200 Copenhagen N. We've been going here for breakfast for quite some time and now we will also come here for ice cream. Verdens rummet is joining forces with Siciliansk is, our absolut favourite. Located in "Rabarberkvarteret" close to hip and cool Jægersborgsgade, Verdens rummet and it's brotherly neighbours Kølster Tolv Haner and Blaaregn is a popular spot for first Tinder dates and locals.
3. EAT | MAUI POKÉ
Ravnsborggade 12D, 2200 Copenhagen N. Youssef Ramy has been a well known name on the clubbing scene since way back, my friend since quite far back and since fairly recently now also the owner of a restaurant. I was super excited to try out his poké bowls to see if they lived up to my expectations and they sure do! Fresh and filled with flavour. Nothing half-assed here, as you might find at other places.
4. DRINK | POMPETTE
Møllegade 3, 2200 Copenhagen N. We love natural wine. We love natural wine served by the glass even more. We absolutely adore places where there’s only one white, one red, one sparkling and one orange to chose from, as they have been carefully selected and are certain to tickle your tastebuds. The menu is simple but in our opinion just what you need for an early evening with wine and snacks. Don’t even get us started on the burrata… The food is served on pre-loved plates in different styles and colours and they also have an excellent playlist.
5. DO | ASSISTENS KIRKEGÅRD
Kapelvej 4, 2400 Copenhagen N. No, you're not allowed to step on the grass. But when it's 24 degrees in Copenhagen, this is where you'll find sun thirsty locals as well as the weekend visitors. Assistens Kirkegård is also a place to learn more about danish history, as you'll find several known people resting here. H.C. Andersen is probably the most visited grave, but you'll also find the daredevil, actress and aerialist Emilie Sannom as well as the American jazz musician Richard Bentley Boone.
6. SHOP | JÆGERSBORGSGADE
Jægersborgsgade, 2400 Copenhagen N. Quirky shops, nitrogen ice cream and high class coffee. You'll find it all in Jægersborgsgade and you can easily spend a day here. The other streets in this area are in general where you'll find souvenirs extraordinaire and niche boutiques.
7. EAT | SNACK & BLUES
Guldbergsgade, 2400 Copenhagen N. Info coming soon.
