Nightlife in Copenhagen has a couple of gears and the real party
doesn''t rev up until very late at night. To jumpstart the evening,
most wait the night hours away in a huge variety of popular cafés
and bars that usually serve both food and drinks. These can range
from renovated historic buildings with new edgy décors to newly
built and fashionable cafés.
Hybrid bars are a perfect way to begin the night as they change
themes and almost reinvent their venue several times in a single
night. This lets patron enjoy easy listening music and nice meals
before late night DJ''s take over with a dance club atmosphere.
Those looking for more culture than party may look to the
150-year-old Pantomime Theatre, which stages commedia dell''arte
productions with free admission. The modern Tivolis Koncertsal
offers classical entertainment from opera to symphonies. You can
often find last-minute discounted tickets at the ticket kiosk
across from the Nørreport train station at the corner of Fiolstræde
and Nørre Voldgade.
For those that venture on in the early morning, the night clubs
are just waking up. Venues pop up and disappear quickly in
Copenhagen which gives a fresh variety of choices although old
favourites, like once popular jazz clubs, are abandoned. However
certain areas of the city such as Nyhavn and Boltens Gaard are long
time Copenhagen nightlife districts that can always promise great
venues. These often stay open until five in the morning when it
isn''t too far to begin again.
