We called the sweet meatpacking district of Vesterbro our home for 4 days, which I guess is similar to Shoreditch, London and Williamsburg, NYC. Our quaint little apartment of Scandi dreams sat sweetly above an XXdirty adult playroom. Yup. A discovery made by accident one fine morning when a curtain blew in the wind, revealing…more than I knew was humanly possible. The location was spot on though. Kødbyen, the actual meat packing area, is filled with al fresco wines and dines but I don’t want to essay the eyeballs off you. Instead, here’s a list of do’s for your visit to le hagen :

Rent a bike – Sit outside and drink Cherry wine with Hells Angels in War Pigs – go for a pizza at Mother, fresh seafood at Fiskebaren, an organic feast at BioMio (ideal for veggies/vegans) – taste the local herbs at Freetown Christiania (Europe’s Nimbin)– table dance at ex Slaughterhouse, Mesteren & Laerlingen – get cleverer at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art (scenic 1hr train journey from central) – get sexy and mysterious at the club Ruby – sell your soul at the Acne Archive for a pair of shoes 8 sizes too small which you can’t live without – shop – ride it @ Tivoli Garden – Drink here if you’re a literature lover– and finally, never grow up at Superkilen.

If you’re going in the winter, here ye go.

This be the candy coloured toy town of Nyhavn, you should probably absolutely definitely go there some time. Slurp on a cold Aperol Spritz along the canal or if you want to make pals, avoid the tourist trap bars and BYOB to the streets like the locals. There’s BBQs, benches and picnic patches on just about every corner. Man the Danish folk nail al-fresco living.

We continued our yonder to Torvehallerne food market which has over 60 food stalls. Here we ate, drank and got in an argument about reality TV and global warming (?), before heading to the Meatpacking district in Vesterbro for Cherry Wine with the lads. Dinner was served at Madklubben which was p.e.n.g.

The grate Danes, despite their nauseating good looks and effortless minimalism made us try hard, bronzer heavy gals feel so welcome. They have a fairer work life balance and a zest for every topic.


I’m moving there. Can I?


(Big fan of your work guys, clearly.)

Everything you see was collected by five groups commissioned by  City of Copenhagen and RealDania – they were sent to Palestine, Spain, Thailand, Texas and Jamaica in order to acquire five specific objects which have now all been installed for anyone and everyone to enjoy. There’s more than 100 different object encountered from more than 50 different countries so we thought we’d try and leave our friend Sarah there as a gift from London, but the swine followed us home…

I’ve left versions of the gals outfits under their photos for anyone interested! All over the iron-on initials on LTs bomber, get ’em here.
