A bar that is busy from early evening until very late! Filled with students mixed with local drinking crowd. Billiard and pool tables, table football. Cheep beer. When it gets rowdy it stays rowdy. Can be a bit cramped but that is half the appeal.

Faelledparken is a huge, green space at the heart of smart østerbro, play football, throw a Frisbee, sit and drink beer/wine, have an impromptu BBQ (but try not to destroy the grass!).

You might remember the TV advert that claimed ‘the Danes hate to see it leave’ but they certainly don’t mind offering visitors the chance to drink it in their city. The tour offers some of the cheapest pints in the city as, after a brief look round, you can drink for an hour for free. The catch – it’s open until 4pm, so getting your money’s worth may feel a little indecent!

On a recent trip I stayed at this hostel in Copenhagen and it was a great base for exploring the city, as well as one of the most affordable places to stay in this pricey city.
It’s in the perfect location right near Vesterbro, the hip quarter jammed with vintage clothes stores, trendy nightclubs and late-night bars – with an unbeatable view of the city from all the rooms as it's housed in one of Copenhagen’s few tall buildings.
There’s a bar and restaurant on the premises, and a kitchen which is helpful for budget travelers.

First cocktail bar in Frederiksberg. Just been open for a year but is already established as a pearl on the Copenhagen bar scene. Great food as well - the kitchen serves classic French and Italian food.
Once you brave the dodgy alleyway this restaurant is a great find. It has a nice local atmosphere and is very good value (especially for Copenhagen). It was about £16 for the fish fondue which was plentiful and of a very high quality. There was a great salad bar to go with it too.

An excellent herring restaurant with a great selection of this classic Danish delicacy, helpful waitresses and plenty of tables outside to enjoy the Nyhavn atmosphere and views.
Nyhavn 5, overlooking the water and boats
Great cafe close to Nyhavn and Kongens Nytorv - without either's high prices. Great sandwiches, good beer, very nice wines.
Free Internet -and a laptop you can use to check your mail, if you haven't brought your own.
The owner is a really nice American guy named Tom.

Nearest metro station: Kongens Nytorv
From Kongens Nytorv, walk down Nyhavn past all the old boats and the cafes and take a right across the bridge - it's on the next corner.
Cafe/bar/restaurant - a well known Copenhagen hangout off the main drag for brunch and at any time - not posh, reasonably priced, with decent food, good beers, great bohemian crowd and atmosphere (always great looking crowd!! - but you are in Scandinavia!) so, students, old folk, artists, trendy types - usually all locals etc.

A unique cafe/restaurant housed inside one of Copenhagen's old tram cars, on a quiet square in the centre of Copenhagen. Can get quite hot inside in summer but there's seating outside (though sit outside and you miss out on the atmosphere). Food is cheap and cheerful - burgers, chips, omelettes. Touristy but fun.
