First of all, I am not an alcohol-drinker, so I can't really judge the quality of that, although friends seemed pretty happy with their drinks. As for myself, I was very pleasantly surprised that the non-alcoholic fruity drinks waiter created for me were not only beautiful, but also very very tasty! The atmosphere of the venue is very cozy and... More

The is a great bar for pre-dinner drinks. Cosy interior is not quite my style but harks back to the mostly forgotten age of drinking establishments. Piano playing in the corner, table service and good quality cocktails. There's not a lot of space so Library Bar had to be creative with its Christmas decorations. A tree suspended upside down from... More

Really nice atmosphere, cozy and intimate. For a books fan it is a good choice in regards to the decor. The service was too slow, we had to get up to get the attention of the waiter. Average drinks quality.

This bar is oddly rated very well. I don't get it. It has no windows, no personality and a fake atmosphere of library. On top of that: We served, was asked to seat ourselves and then they would take orders at the table. 25 minutes later, we still hadn't seen a waiter and actually had to leave, because we had...

This was such a great little consequence of staying at the Plaza. We would not have come here otherwise. Great cocktails and Jazz. Definitely worth the visit.

My sister and I went here for a cocktail before dinner. She had been before and wanted to share the experience. All I can say is devine. The room is old school, extensive wood paneled with loads of books on shelves (hence the name), small tables with leather club chairs also banquettes against the walls. Gorgeous high ceiling with crystal... More

This bar remains secret in CPH and very few actually knows about it. It's a lovely small place with a warm feeling. Very nice place for a cocktail.

If you want the special atmosphere from and old London club, this is the place. Go to Plaza near the main train station and pass the front desk. there you will find your bar. Very cosy atmosphere from old days. You must know it to find it. Good luck.

With book-lined walls, leather seats, and muted lighting this place has a wonderful classic atmosphere. Drinks are a little on the expensive side, but it makes a change from most bars. Pop in for a drink and some "down time".

Staying in Inner Vesterbro

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.
