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.
