Duck and Cover, Copenhagen

This place in Copenhagen is a true ambassador for Nordic style and atmosphere. The decor is Danish furniture classics and the bar is probably an "undiscovered gem!" It's definitely a favorite of mine - the staff are nice and they experiment a lot, but at the same time they manage to keep it simple and elegant.

Svartengrens

A classic Stockholm joint that gets better and better every year. The cocktails are of the highest quality at the moment and they do great things with aquavit. (The winner of the Linie Award cocktail competition works here.)
