Welcome to Madklubben Aarhus                                                                

Right by the harbor, at the end of “Åen”, close to Dokk1, as neighbors to the tramway and in the middle of it all you’ll find Madklubben Aarhus. In the city’s stunning old custom house, which has lived to be inhabited by tax officials, architecture pupils and party-minded university students alike, we’ve created an eatery shaped by and for Aarhus. At Madklubben our mission is to serve great food at more than fair prices. We want to be the alternative to your dinner at home – Aarhus’ natural and vibrant gathering point on a Tuesday as well as a Saturday.

Madklubben expands: Soon we will open our second restaurant in Aarhus

Madklubben expands: Soon we will open our second restaurant in Aarhus

Yes, you heard right! We love Aarhus, our wonderful staff and the great welcome of Madklubben, that we have experienced. Therefore we wish to expand and are now on our way with our second restaurant in Aarhus City.

Inspiration and experience will be collected from Bistro Royal and Madklubben Steak in Copenhagen, but it won’t be a copy hereof or a Madklubben Aarhus 2.0, that we will open up for. The atmosphere will be created by New York vibes, Danish design and Francophile feelings, and you can look forward to an à la carte menu including everything from steak, tartare, fish, pork and duck to green and garnish in all forms. Oh and not to forget a decent wine menu with something for all preferences. The price of a 3 course dinner will be around DKK 300, and for lunch we will offer classic bistro serverings and Danish “smørrebrød” for also a favorable price.


We will take over the rustic location of the previous restaurant and night club “Castenskiold” – right at the sunny side of the central creek in Aarhus, just a few hundred meters away from our other address at Hack Kampmanns Plads. Our preparations for the renovation project are already in full motion, and we are looking forward to welcome you inside to a newly renovated dining spot with capacity of 120 guests indoors. We are quite sure that our 100 seats outside in the sun also will be a great hit when the weather is nice.


We won’t miss out of the cozy months of Christmas, why we will be ready to open up for our new restaurant already in November this year, which we are still working on finding the the perfect name for. In sight we look forward to also be opening up for breakfast and hereby be an all day restaurant.

Follow along on right this site where we will keep you updated with all sneak peeks, menus, pictures and other news. Stay tunes – we can’t wait!

Madklubben take part of this year’s Food Festival in Aarhus

If there is something Madklubben is fond of then it is great food and the entire social aspect revolved around dining experiences. We have recently opened up our restaurant in Aarhus, and now we are more than happy to also be joining the biggest food event in the Northern Europe – this year’s Food Festival located at “Tangkrogen” in Aarhus.

Madklubben is one out of the four resturants with a booth at Food Festival, and here we are looking forward to welcome enthusiastic chefs, producers, youngsters, elder, adults, children and most importantly: You! We will on a daily basis sell delicious food-favorites for favorable prices. Among our selection you will find Madklubben’s béarnaise burger with homemade béarnaise sauce, crispy truffle popcorn, focaccia bread with garlic mascarpone and a creamy risotto with seasonal greens – all for prices from DKK 10 to DKK 85.

Friday night we look forward to take part of the “ultimate Aarhus dinner” – a cosy and intimate dining experience, where we will serve you 2 delicious courses plus snacks from near and afar by the long dining table at the festival location. But hurry up buying tickets. The dinner is a closed event with only 70 available seats!

Saturday you can find out more about Madklubben’s history and our vision for Madklubben Aarhus, when our owner, Anders Aagaard, and our kitchen chef in Aarhus, Peter Daniel Madsen, take the stage for an exciting talk. Here they will answer questions in regards of: Why are we here? What do we wish to contribute with in Aarhus? And what is the DNA of Madklubben?

Furthermore, you can all throughout the weekend experience the loads of areas, workshops and events of the Food Festival. Do you wish to find out more about the festival and our events? Find more information at www.foodfestival.dk/en or buy your tickets directly by clicking here.

Sneak Peek: Here is the menu for Madklubben Aarhus

We are currently working on building both our restaurant and web page in Aarhus. Very soon we will be open for reservations, but as a little teaser you can already now discover the menu which you will find in the restaurant when we open Madklubben Aarhus Tuesday the May 15th.

You can look forward to a plentitude of Madklubben’s favorite dishes inspired from the Danish and French kitchen. Swing by for a single course with a beer on the side or compose your very own 3 course dinner for a little as DKK 225. Like at all other Madklubben restaurants there’s room for the epicurean who wants to upgrade with tenderloin, truffles and other delicacies for a few extra “kroner” as well as the student arriving with a tight budget but expecting a tasty bang for the buck.

Several of the ideas our guest from Aarhus wrote on the walls at our pop up at the Aarhus Festival in 2016 has also made their way to our menu. Here we have room for both a Danish luxury “tartelet”, burger, crispy fries, tartare, chili mayo, risotto (made with pearl barley though) and plenty of béarnaise. In the drinking department there is – as required – budget friendly, high quality cocktails and even an “Aarhus set” made from an ice cold “Ceres Top” beer with an “Arnbitter” on the side.

We have also just launched the full wine list, our cocktails selection as well as our group menus and online reservation. Follow along right here and at our Facebook page. We are looking forward to welcome you at Madklubben Aarhus!

Big plans for 2018: Get excited for these new Madklubben restaurants

2017 was a fantastic year for our Copenhagen based restaurant family. We welcomed Madklubben Frederiksberg in a 19th century train station, opened the doors to Tony’s Østerbro as well as a stylish event space in the iconic ”PARK” building on Østerbrogade, relocated Asian crowd favorite Hanzō to Værnedamsvej and premiered Madklubben Nørrebro in a semi-secret courtyard below the city’s famous ”IRMA” rooftop neon signs.

Now we welcome 2018 and it will be another year packed with new restaurants as well as transformations of existing venues. Get the full lowdown here:

Madklubben Østerbro: The final chapter of our grand transformation of the historic ”PARK” building opened in the beginning of January in the shape of Madklubben Østerbro. Book a table for a dining experience and read all about the new restaurant by clicking here.

FOOD CLUB: By the end of January we’ll open the doors to a brand new concept in the Madklubben family: FOOD CLUB. Here you can expect a buffet like you’ve never tried one before, packed with free range meats, organic vegetables and sustainable ingredients. The price tag of 275 DKK on weekdays and 325 DKK on weekends will include ALL food and beverages. Keep updated on the development of FOOD CLUB here.

BAZAAR: In the spring of 2018 we’ll welcome restaurant Bazaar in a former post office building in the heart of Copenhagen. Expect a stylish and irresistible tribute to the Moorish kitchen, which you may also know as the Berber kitchen or Arabian kitchen. In other words, a stunning food culture stretching all the way from Syria in the East along the Mediterranean to the South of Spain and further down to Morocco in North Africa. Follow how work on BAZAAR is progressing through this Facebook page and at restaurantbazaar.dk/en.

Madklubben Aarhus: By May 2018 we’ll open our first restaurant in Jutland in Denmark’s second largest city, Aarhus. We’re moving in to the stunning “Aarhus Custom House” dating back to the 19th century. Here you can look forward to a grand Madklubben restaurant inspired by the people, food and culture of Aarhus. We’ll be able to seat 200 to 250 guests indoors and an equal amount outdoors during the summer. The concept will be classic “Madklubben” with one course from DKK 125, 2 courses from DKK 200 and 3 courses from DKK 225. Read more about the project (in Danish) through Aarhus Update here and follow the development of the project on Facebook here. You are also very welcome to check out Madklubben Aarhus’ webside right here.

Mystery project in Vesterbro: On the first day of the year we unveiled (article in Danish) that the Madklubben group will open a new project in the space adjacent to Madklubben Vesterbro during 2018. For many years a small lamp store has occupied the address but what we plan to do with the store won’t be revealed until later this year. Stay tuned!
