Top picks of the meatpacking district

Copenhagen’s Meatpacking District (Kødbyen) was once full of butchers and wholesalers. Today, it is a creative cluster with start-ups, galleries and high-quality restaurants and bars. Space10’s Simon Caspersen knows the best places to go.

Kødbyens Mad & Marked

The Meatpacking District’s food market hosts up to 70 food stalls every Saturday and Sunday throughout the summer. Hang out at communal tables, have great food and enjoy the sun. I love the philosophy of the market because the people behind it keep the costs of renting a stall as low as possible, so smaller, more diverse food pioneers can operate here. The market is about the feel, smell and taste of great produce instead of who can afford a stall.

Kødbyens Høker

Freshly-made organic bread, a cheap cup of coffee on the go and the famous “morgenguffer,” a warm bun with eggs, bacon and mustard, are all served from 9am to 2pm at this charming little bakery. Everything is sold through the bicycle drive-thru window.

Kødbyens Fiskebar

The best seafood restaurant in Copenhagen. They are fanatical about their ingredients and have strong opinions on taste, quality and sustainability. You’ll be served fresh, healthy and delicious food along with really interesting wines and cocktails (the espresso martini is killer). Relaxed atmosphere and beautiful design.

Tommi’s Burger Joint

The best burger in town is at Tommi’s Burger Joint. They serve the real thing here: classic homemade burgers without all the extra fuss and great crispy fries and milkshakes too. They know how to make a really amazing vegetarian burger as well.

V1 Gallery

At the V1 Gallery, art is seen as a profound and competent media for social and political engagement. V1 strives to be a space with no limitations other than quality and nerve. This was the first gallery in Scandinavia that presented artists that were (in)famous on the streets before the fine art commun­ity embraced them.

Prolog Coffee Bar

Prolog is part coffee bar, part magazine store. Here you‘ll find some of the world’s most prominent food magazines and obscure culinary books, as well as handpicked design and art items with a food theme. The ambitious baristas make sure that the coffee tastes absolutely fantastic – they select and roast the coffee beans themselves. You can also roast marshmallows over your own little fire at the table.
