Copenhagen Insider


Altos Family Member Jeppe, lets us in on his very favorite underground spots in the Danish capital. 

Next time you’re there, hold on to this NFT (i.e., “not-for-tourists”) guide Jepe put together—it leads to everything from edgy barber shops to the latest tattoo artists, chill tables and—naturally—the hottest cocktail bars.

INSIDER AGENDA

NOT A HAIR OUT OF PLACE: CARL’S BARBER SHOP

Ok, I’m letting you in on the best barber shop I know—and not just in Copenhagen or even Denmark—we’re talking worldwide. They’ve got a major talent roster of guys—and girls—that barber to the bone! My guy, Simon Sommer, keeps me razor sharp. Gents, remember: what you wear starts with hair. And there’s no better place to take care of it than here.

THINK INK: TIGRE TATTOO PARLOUR


What better souvenir of fabulous Copenhagen than a new tattoo that commemorates you experience? Head straight to the crew at Tigre in an amazing downtown neighborhood. Stellar talent on the needle and they couldn’t be nicer, taking the time to talk and help you arrive a design you’ll love for life.

EATS

NEW NORDIC AT BARR

Nordic delights, now in the former Noma space. Crazy tasty—and a great introduction to the amazing things we’re seeing in Nordic food, without maxxing out your cards. The beer list is a major kick; snacks and shared plates atg the bar. Always packed with sexies—so be sure to reserve your table.

WORKING MAN’S LUNCH AT FLEISCH

Copenhagen’s Meat Packing District is home to Fleisch. The former butcher shop locale is now a forum for delicious, old-school-but-updated Danish lunches—think open-faced sandwiches (especially the famed roast beef) complete with pickles, pickled onions, fried onions and loads of horseradish. Yummy—but kiss me not!

COPENHAGEN MEETS KYOTO: SLURP RAMEN JOINT

Ramen with a nordic twist, kooky, but to die for. Service is chop-chop, so it’s a great option when I don’t have a ton of time. That said, the flavors are full and real; try the spicy miso ramen or a classic shoyu with chashu.

NO-JOKE JAVA: FORLOREN ESPRESSO

My favorite café whether it’s time for a laid-back cup with a buddy or a squeeze, cozy and right in the center of the city. Make note of the address—it’s easy to miss—but get ready for mind-blowing coffee prepared by no-joke baristas. Let go of your usual order and try one of the weekly espresso specials or another off-the-beaten-track menu item. You’re in good hands.

WORTH SLOGGING THE QUEUE: JUNO THE BAKERY

Weekends can mean lines, but that cardamon bun is well worth a chill. Top bakers run the joint; you’ll get the picture with every bite.

FINE THINGS

WARDROBE 19: FOR THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY GENT

I go crazy at W19. They do classic menswear but always with a contemporary approach. Fabulous instead of fancy, with everything from amazing handmade skull-rings to impeccable shirts, denim that fits plus sharp suits, bags, sunglasses and boots. No one leaves empty-handed.

GIRL POWER: PROJECT 4

A boutique inside Wardrobe 19, Project 4 showcases Scandinavia-inflected women’s accessories, separates and nerdy-sexy looks my women friends love. If I wore women’s clothes, I’d get them here, too!

ESSENTIAL DENMARK: ARKK

Do not leave the kingdom without a swing through ARKK, the Danish sneaker brand whose styles are like nothing else on the planet. This—the first Copenhagen store— is more like a sneaker museum, with models in minimalist lines and amazing colors.

GETG OUT THERE: STREETSCAPES AND GREENSPACES

Stroll from Ophelia Plads to Kastellet and see the “Little Mermaid” statue, of Hans Christian Andersen (and later Disney) fame. Ok, maybe Miss Fishtail is a little underwhelming, but the walk is marvelous and takes you through some of Copenhagen’s lovliest blocks. Walk the canals when you get as far as Christianshavn. That’s my favorite Copenhagen, right there!
