Great venue, tricky to find but worth the effort. Tiny narrow bar that was rammed with locals and tourists alike. Atmosphere was perfect and the barman put on a good show. Well stocked bar with strong selection of cocktails. A real shame if this place...More

Wanted to try the Union Bar to see what all the fuss was about, but there is a sign on the door saying the bar is moving and that their cocktails are available at the Union Kitchen across the street. The waiter at the cafe...More

We started our girls night out at this secret bar. The cocktails are different from what you normally come across - not cheap, but definitely worth the price. Find the black door, go inside and step back into an ancient era, where alcohol was only...More

Very very good bar. Great bartenders, very good drinks and an amazing atmosphere. Highly recommended. No toilets though, or?

Without a doubt the best bar in Copenhagen. It's hard to find, we ended up having to ask in The Union Kitchen, but we were glad we did. The bar looks like something from Prohibition times, the cocktails are increadible and the service is amazing....More

This place is hard to find if you do not know where it is; there are no signs and if the place is full the bartenders will not let more people in (at least that is what I have been told). We arrived early (around...More

The union bar gives you a flashback to the Prohibition in the United States. The entrance is not very visible, so you have to know that it's there! The cocktails are excellent, the selection is quite broad and the bartenders are telling great storys when...More

Once you've found this place, which is no easy feat, you'll find talented bartenders who can make just about anything. They are also quite friendly - something rare in Scandinavia. The menu lists the house specialties which are really unique and tasty, though it will...More
