We came from the uk and the jailhouse was recommended by the Copenhagen nightlife guidebook acquired at the airport (the recommendation should be amended to exclude this bar.) As a bar that promotes itself with the 'jailhouse' novelty there was a lack thereof. In search...More

Quirky layout, as the name suggests, just like a prison. Staff are very friendly and drinks very reasonably priced. Went back night after night. Quite hard to find so keep your eyes peeled.
