Copenhagen. Beautiful city filled with even more beautiful people. 🇩🇰😍
This was my second time in CPH, yet the city felt completely different and I saw a new side that I loved even more the second time around.
RIDE: Baisikeli (Ingerslevsgade 80 | Åbent Man-Fre 10-18. Lør&Søn 10-16)
First things first, get yourself a bike. They have them all over the city, we got ours from Baisikeli which literally has 1000s of bikes to choose from. I wanted a cute little pink one but my legs were in my armpits riding it unfortunately. The best thing about CPH is that you can literally leave your bike anywhere and its safe. Lock the wheels but we left ours outside a bar overnight and they were there in the morning – how about that London.
This place is a must. Hungry or not, get your belly here. It was recommended by literally every Dane we met. The Open Sandwiches or smørrebrød (a CPH thing) were incredible, went for the Tartar. Get a side of the crispy fries which are covered in garlic and rosemary goodness and if you have a sweet tooth have a Chai Latte. They are all over CPH and made with this divine powder, spicy goodness.
SEE: Design Museum Danmark (Bredgade 68
DK-1260 København K)
Could literally spend hours here. They had an I AM BLACK VELVET exhibition on Balmain through the years which was divine. Literally all the little black dresses circa 1989 I would bring back and wear today.
The Danish Chair: An International Affair is a permanent exhibition in the museum which affirms that the Danes are responsible for paving the way in terms of where we all rest our behinds. There were a lot of Eames masterpieces in there.
HIDDEN GEM: Room 606, Radisson Blu Hotel (Hammerichsgade 1
Copenhagen V, DK-1611)
A golden gem, one of my friends Ana who is an artist tried to take us here. Room 606 is the only room in the hotel that has the original preserved designs commissioned by Arne Jacobsen. Arne Jacobsen is one of the most iconic designers from Denmark, probably most well known for The Egg Chair (1958) which was designed specifically for this hotel.
SHOP: Moss Copenhagen.
Dotted all around the city, this is a mainstream shop in CPH that I wish would come to London. Massive fan of Scandinavian style, this story has your stylish basics for reasonable prices.
DANCE: Bakken (Flæsketorvet 19, 1711 København V)
This place is incredible. Not only do they serve pitchers of Gin & Tonic, the DJ, decor and crowd in this place is everything you could possibly want on a night out in CPH.
The DJ looked as if he had been transported from a Back to the Future film and into the club. Instead of using headphones he had a proper old-school, curly cord, string attached phone to hear the upcoming tracks. SO much fun.
We also met lots of gorgeous VIKINGS in the bar, including a whole generational family – with the grandfather, father and sons out to party.
EAT AGAIN: The Greasy Burger Joint.
Located in the parking lot just outside of Bakken. This burger truck was started by a Syrian refugee. His story was incredible, a side of inspiration with burger is not something you’d expect.
Until next time CPH!
