Good beer selection. Fairly small room and very popular with the locals on a Saturday night. Would have been great if there was more space.

Craft brew pub with a cafe-like, relaxed, and inviting atmosphere that encourages deep conversation with friends. Great selection of unique craft beers (e.g., Albino Octopus Assassin) and extremely helpful and friendly staff made for a memorable night in downtown Copenhagen. A must go if you are in town for the night and you want to relax with friends over a... More

Tired of Carlsberg and Tuborg? Do try this place, nice clean interior but sufficiently dimly lit to be a convincing A-class place for beer. Had a wonderful local IPA that was available on tap. Friend enjoyed their Belgian specialty. Prices seem fair, service nice and you're immediately given a taste of what you're interested in before making a purchase.

Fantastic beer selection. 16 taps and lots of bottles. They also have whiskey, rum, soda, wine, cider ... Bartenders has a great knowledge about their selection.

I love this bar! It's really my favorite bar in that I've gone to in my life! It's a neighborhood bar, with all the things I would want to drink, especially the beer. I haven't been able to get to the rum and whiskey because the beer is in my way. The beer bottle selection is beautiful! The best thing,... More

A nice selection of beers that changes so fast I keep coming back to try the newest ones. The bottle selection is wide and they always have something exciting. The service is great and the atmosphere is cozy, complete with friendly regulars and staff.

We were lucky to be staying close by so visited the black swan a couple of times. It's a cosy little local with a good selection of Danish ales. Friendly staff and reasonable prices. Definitely worth a visit.

Always good beer on tap. Not too many, what lots of bars do wrong. The Swan caters what they can handle. Always good and friendly service. Have patience on Thursdays as it gets very crowdy, but a full pub speaks for itsself.

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
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 neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
