We loved the cosy atmosphere, although it got so crowded- almost bursting- at some point, yet it was fun. We had drinks in reasonable prices, friendly service, but what's most, we enjoyed 3 hours of great jazz!!!

It's crowded, music is fantastic, beer is not that expensive (it's Copenhagen - it won't be super cheap), it's a bit rough around the edged - what's not to love. Having been to NYC recently where most jazz clubs have horrible entrance fees and require...More

Visited for the 9pm jazz jam - already full to bursting! Fabulous 4 hours of the best local jazz talent around. It's small, crowded and a task to reach the bar but the beer prices are cheap for Copenhagen and entrance is free on Sunday...More

Amazing little bar with such a warm atmosphere! 100 dkk entrance fee as there was a band playing but it was well worth it. Definitely recommend it, especially during the Jazz Festival in July.

This is a great jazz bar with frequent lives. But besides the music, I love the nice, jazzy atmosphere and the stay-cool but warm friendship that hangs around the bar. Nice beers, youngsters and jazz lovers are mixing every night in a great location -...More

Came here for the open mic jazz night on a Sunday. Great music and atmosphere and good selection of beers behind the bar. I recommend arriving early as the bar is quite small and the whole place fills up quickly!

Our group of 6 people visited this jazz club on Friday evening. We were delighted with the very friendly service (and happy hour prices) and really good music. Definitely worth of a recommendation!

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
