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 250 DKK on weekdays and 300 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.

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.

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!

Welcome 2018 with an exquisite New Year’s Eve dinner at Alabama Social

Welcome 2018 with an exquisite New Year’s Eve dinner at Alabama Social

Our American restaurant – Alabama Social – celebrates the culinary heritage from the deep South and plans to end 2017 in style. Enjoy no less than 5 scrumptious dishes accompanied by Champagne, gorgeous wines and an Espresso Martini. We’re gonna pull out all the stops with beef tartare, langoustine, tender steaks and a sinful white chocolate dessert.

The New Year’s celebration must not be forgotten, why we look forward to serve up an unique New Year’s Eve dinner in true American style. The scene is set for a wonderful evening with beautiful surroundings by the beloved attraction in Copenhagen: “the lakes”. We’ve prepped our restaurant for a celebratory evening with dark wooden tables, streamlined leather couches and black Børge Mogensen chairs. If you’ll make sure bring the party, we promise to bring you the food!

Welcome 2018 with a bite of our delicate “tartare taco” – tatare on crispy taco with pickles and truffle mayo – or our refined “midnight mousse” made of white chocolate with seared white chocolate, blackcurrant sorbet and dried blackcurrant berries. In true New Year’s Eve spirit we skip the coffee and instead enjoy an espresso martini which will (besides give you a caffeine kick) speed up your New Year’s festivities.

Read more and take part in our New Year’s celebrations for the great price of DKK 1200 right here. At 11.30 pm we thank you for tonight and wish each other a happy New Year so our lovely staff can get home and enjoy the celebrations with friends and family. We are looking forward to be sending you happy and full towards the new year.

Spice up your Christmas party with the taste of real pleasure at Alabama Social

Spice up your Christmas party with the taste of real pleasure at Alabama Social

The deep American South has come to Copenhagen. At Alabama Social in Copenhagen’s vibrant Nørrebro district you can expect comfort food and Cajun classics served in an eclectic and homely Christmas setting.

According to the definition of the Danish word “hygge”, it implies a special feeling, wellbeing and pleasure – a concept we can support! And even though “hygge” is a Danish thing, it doesn’t mean, that it isn’t to be found on your quick visit to the Southern American states at Alabama Social. Here we play with the American Christmas spirit and ensure sophisticated surroundings for this year’s Christmas party with dark wooden tables, elegant leader sofas and Danish Børge Mogensen chairs.

And not just our Christmas spirit is filled with American pleasure – so is our food! In the kitchen we’re busy cooking clam soup with scallops and bacon, stuffed turkey the real American way, roasted roots with orange and pumpkin seeds and a splendid pecan pie with vanilla ice cream on the side. So if you’re not into classic Danish herring, pork sausage or ris á la mande then come together and wish each other “merry xmas”, ”joy to the world” and ”happy holidays” with a Christmas dinner at Alabama Social.

Click here if you wish to see all your options and how you book a table. Less than 10 persons? No worries – if you just bring the party, we’ll bring the food! The restaurant’s Christmas à la carte comes into force from November 7th.

PS. Remember you can continue the celebrations at Madklubben’s cocktail bar Bar Next Door after your Christmas dinner.

Got the Christmas party under control yet?

Got the Christmas party under control yet?

Okay, so we know you might be thinking ”Why on earth are they advertising for Christmas already?”, while you pause and realize that it might actually not be that long before the malls are covered in sparkly ornaments and supermarkets are packed with candy canes and peppernuts (check the link to learn more about this classic Danish Christmas cookie.)

Don’t worry there’s still some time to go, but it’s now you have to get going with booking a table if you want to secure the perfect date and time for this year’s Christmas dinner with your colleagues, friends or family.

We’ve gathered all our restaurants on one festive and ”Christmassy” landing page (we thought about dressing it up even further with snow and elves, but we thought it would be better to ease you into it.) On the site groups of 10 guests or more can explore classic and more untraditional Christmas restaurant experiences all characterized by scrumptious food and more than fair prices.

See you at madklubben.dk/en/christmas soon!
