At a glance: Cocktails, speak easy, high end, relaxed, high quality
Holmens Kanal cocktail bar is the only cocktail bar in Copenhagen to receive six stars from Danish Daily Politiken. And there is a reason for that. No other cocktail bar in the City takes the art of making cocktails in perfectly set surroundings as seriously as Holmens Kanal.
When entering the door you are greeted by a smiling hostess, who will take you to a available table. Cocktails here are served at the table, and the menu consists mostly of classic cocktails with a subtle twist. For instance they serve an excellent corpse reviver number 7 with sloe gin and have created their own five different versions of the Old Fashioned.
Even though the place looks absolutely amazing with its red drapes, hand crafted dark leather sofa booths and outstanding service, cocktails here doesn’t cost notably more than in many other places good bars. Prices range from 95 kr. to around 130 kr., and having your favourite cocktail here before going out for dinner in the up-market area around Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn is a great way to start your evening.
Or you can stay here all night instead – on Fridays Holmens Kanal has a DJ playing from 10 pm till 2 am.
