At a glance: Cocktails, Danish design, 50-60’s look, cosy, relaxed
On a quiet side road to the busy main street Vesterbrogade in the hectic and fashionable Vesterbro in Copenhagen, you find this cocktail gem. Only a small sign on the facade gives away the location of the bar, but once inside, the place really makes a notice of itself. The furniture is from the 1950’s and 60’ with a focus on Danish design from the era. Leather and wood are the predominant materials and the lighting is dimmed to set the mood of this relaxing and welcoming bar.
On the cocktail side the bartenders pay respect to the change of seasons as the menu changes year round giving seasonal twists to the classic cocktails. You can always have your favourite cocktail here any way you like it, but the very experienced bartenders – who are among the best in town – will most likely have an opinion on how to make a new and often better version. Especially their use of the locally produced danish aqauvit makes for cocktails that are absolutely delicious.
There is no doubt that the cocktails at Duck and Cover are among the best in Copenhagen, and for guests with an interest in Danish design this bar is piece of heaven. Prices range between 100-140 kr. for the handcrafted cocktails and opening hours are Tuesday-Wednesday from 16.00 till 01.00 and Thursday to Saturday from 16.00 till 02.00.
