Going out for a few beers is one thing and going out for cocktails is another. There’s something innately glamorous about it, and it’s so exciting to taste new flavour combinations with every glass. We can watch wide-eyed as dry ice laps at the glass or bubbles erupt suddenly on the surface, and Copenhagen is full of amazing mixologists ready to make your night extra-special.

If you didn’t know that cocktail bar 1656 was at Gasværksvej 33 in Copenhagen, you’d walk straight past it.

Ruby is legitimately one of the world’s best bars – in 2015 is ranked 35th on the world’s best bars list. It’s not flashy or obnoxious. The decor is simple and the cocktails are concocted thoughtfully, with concern for both the taste and the presentation. It doesn’t get any better than that!
6. The Barking Dog
📍Sankt Hans Gade 19, 2200
This bar has strong pub vibes and that makes us happy, here at Secret København. Their cocktail menu is pretty extensive, but perhaps not as fancy as others. However, what they do, they do well. It’s a super-comfy relaxed environment and one of our favourite places to enjoy whatever they fancy making that day. See the board above the bar for a list of what’s on offer that day. You can read their tempting cocktail menu on the website.
