The nominees and the winner of Best Cocktail in Copenhagen 2012
Ruby, Nybrogade 10, 1203 København K (WINNER)
Ruby has long been at the very forefront, when it comes to being a favourite cocktail spot for thirsty Copenhageners. It is still the place to see for some of the most outstanding and intense cocktail mastery in town.
Gilt, Rantzausgade 39, 2200 København N
A cocktail named ‘Thistle and Nettle’?Absolutely! The tenacious cocktail bar Gilt has been located in Rantzausgade since 2003 and remains in the top five with Nordic-inspired cocktails and enthusiastic charm.
The Barking Dog, Sankt Hans Gade 19, 2200 København N
The newest addition to the Copenhagen cocktail card calls itself a ‘modern pub’ and goes straight in at the top with über-dedicated cocktail fanatics behind the bar and soft vinyl records on the turntable.
1105, Kristen Bernikows Gade 4, 1105 København K
This bar is on the international ‘what’s hot’ lists, and deservedly so. Star-tender Gromit has set a fashion with his understated and elegant bar in the inner city, which on top of everything has just opened a sister bar called L’Etoile.
Salon 39, Vodroffsvej 39, 1900 Frederiksberg C
Yes, you can actually quite comfortably be located on Frederiksberg and still be one of Copenhagen’s most popular cocktail bars. Salon 39 at Vodroffsvej is stylish and elegant with a mature atmosphere and a service, which is top notch. As a bonus they serve cocktails on Sunday mornings … (in a range from sensitive to completely bonkers).
