Located right by Vesterbrogade, you find the former production facility turned cocktail bar: Lidkoeb
The three story building was original built by pharmacist H.P. Madsen in 1886. It originally functioned as a production facility for Vesterbro pharmacy. However, by the late 1980 the production was shut down, and the building abandoned. Fast forward 30 years, the worn out building caught the attention of its future owner Rasmus Shepherd-Lomborg, who saw it’s potential as a new addition to the Copenhagen nightlife. The rest as they say is history…
Lidkoeb sports great drinks, a large sortiment of whiskey brands with a great atmosphere to boot!
For a different and more alternative nightlife experience one has to look no further than Märkbar on Vesterbrogade 106A. The volume has been cranked to 11 in this bar as rock and metal music is roaring from the speaker with the beers slapping equally hard.
The setting and atmosphere is similar to that of a Berlin bar and a great choice for anyone into the rock/punk/metal scene. As long as you don’t mind the indoor smoking!
On the corner of Sønderboulevard 58 you find the newest entry on our list. Dumpo is a cocktail bar with the concept ‘Bar & Snackery’. This concept is the fulfillment of many Vesterbro peoples’ wish to have a place that acts as both pub, cocktailbar and eatery – all at the same time!
