Copenhagen’s Best Wine Bars

While you won’t find vineyards covering Denmark’s rolling countryside, you certainly will find exceptional wine bars throughout the city. These are a few favorites.

Jægersborggade 40, 2200 København, Denmark
This is a project from the folks behind Relæ. A natural wine bar situated in the heart of Nørrebro, the restaurant delivers modernized versions of everyday food with special attention paid to high-quality ingredients selected from the same suppliers who service Relæ. As their website says, this includes “biodynamic vegetables from Kiselgården, roots from Lammefjorden, pig from Grambogaard, lamb from Havregaard and herbs from the forest.” Photo: Heather Sperling (spersper on flickr).
53A Havnegade
This wine bar focuses on simplicity with a clean interior style. They have a highly diverse wine selection which is carefully selected and focuses heavily on biodynamic and natural wines. They also have several great goodie boards featuring top quality cold meats, cheeses, bread while serve a number of hot dishes if you’re in the mood for something more filling. Photo: Den Vandrette
Gothersgade 87, 1123 København, Denmark
More than just a wine bar, this is also a vibrant Italian restaurant dedicated to the senses. The restaurant is located right across from Kongens Have (the King’s Garden) in central Copenhagen. Well aware of this fact, they have an innovative take-away option for those interested in picnicking in the park. The restaurant received an Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator in 2011, 2012, and 2013. Photo: Il Senso
61 Istedgade
A great relaxed wine bar with a wine happy hour which is extremely popular. There’s a nice wine selection which stretches beyond the bar’s namesake wine, a quirky interior atmosphere, and a very relaxed environment. This isn’t the type of wine bar you have to put a jacket on for, which makes it a perfect fit for Vesterbro and a huge hit among locals. This is the sister location to Malbeck Vinoteria, located in Norrebro. Photo: Malbeck Vinbar
