Welcome to Bar Next Door

Located on the bank of Copenhagen’s ”lakes”, Bar Next Door is Madklubben’s very own cocktail den where quality and more than fair prices go hand in hand. Enjoy a true classic or try one of the bartenders’ own creations – the price level for the vast majority of our cocktails is 80 to 85 DKK. Many guests catch a drink before or after dinner at one of the neighboring restaurants, Alabama Social, Madklubben Nørrebro or Gran Torino, but by the weekend the bar is also packed with urban flaneurs driven by thirst more than hunger and they bid the night welcome with a ”skål” bathed in the blue light from the iconic ”Cocktails & Dreams” neon sign.

You know the scenario: You feel like dining out but just can’t decide on where to go or what you’re in the mood for. Should you opt for Italian? American? Or maybe just play it safe with a great steak? On Sunday August 27th you don’t have to choose because we’re giving you a unique possibility to visit no less than three great restaurants in just one night.

As part of the Copenhagen Cooking & Food Festival we’re hosting a Food Crawl in Copenhagen’s vibrant Nørrebro District, which means you’ll have your starter at one restaurant, your main course at another restaurant and your dessert at a third and entirely different restaurant. The participating venues are Gran Torino, Alabama Social and Madklubben Nørrebro – all conveniently located side by side along the city’s manmade lakes marking the border between downtown Copenhagen and Nørrebro.

Check out this video from last year’s Food Crawl:

The tickets have already been released and they’re selling like hotcakes. A ticket to Madklubben’s Food Crawls costs DKK 300 and includes a glass of bubbly upon arrival. You can choose between different starting times on each of the three ”routes” on offer:

Starter at Gran Torino – Main course at Alabama Social – Dessert at Madklubben Nørrebro
or
Starter at Madklubben Nørrebro – Main course at Gran Torino – Dessert at Alabama Social

Don’t forget that we’re also hosting a similar Food Crawl in the heart of Copenhagen the week before on Sunday August 20th where you’ll get to visit Bistro Royal, Tony’s and Madklubben Bistro-de-Luxe.

Springtime has officially arrived and just like all the flowers and trees in the Danish capital, future plans for Madklubben are blooming. A wide array of media outlets from Politiken to Berlingske and beyond have reported on our new tasty projects set to open in 2017 but to make things easier we’ve collected all the essential information for you right here:

Madklubben Frederiksberg: This scrumptious yet elegant neighborhood spot will open in an old train station in the smack middle of Frederiksberg by the end of May.

Tony’s Østerbro: We’ve acquired one of Copenhagen’s most iconic buildings located in Østerbro. Dating back to 1926 the impressive structure used to house a wide array of night clubs and restaurants and will be resurrected with several new Madklubben concepts. The first to open is Tony’s Østerbro in the summer of 2017 – a duplicate of our Italian crowd favorite close to Nyhavn.

More room for events: Did you wonder what that ”more than five restaurants” in the title meant? Well, it isn’t exactly a restaurant of its own but we’re creating a beautiful space for large groups and parties in the same building in Østerbro. Set to open during the summer this will become the perfect place for your birthday party, wedding, company celebration etc.

Bazaar: Announced in the very end of 2016 our Arabian inspired restaurant is currently underway in a former post office in Dronningens Tværgade in the heart of Copenhagen. We expect the opening to take place late summer or in the beginning of the fall 2017.

”Con Amore”: This is not going to be the actual name of the restaurant but it’s our working title: ”With Love”. In Ny Adelgade right by Kongens Nytorv we are working on a smaller and more exclusive restaurant than what you might expect from a Madklubben project. We look forward to telling you more soon.

Værnedamsvej: On this charming little street connecting the neighborhoods of Vesterbro and Frederiksberg we are also working on creating a great little restaurant in 2017.

Hanzō: Our popular pan-Asian eatery that closed in Nørrebro the beginning of the year is still on the hunt for a new home. We have a few different options on our hands and we can’t wait to bring back Hanzō to our restaurant family in 2017.

Madklubben turns 10: We’re celebrating by hosting a range of delicious Sunday dinners

Madklubben turns 10: We’re celebrating by hosting a range of delicious Sunday dinners

The beginning of May 2017 marks the decennial of the original Madklubben restaurant in the heart of Copenhagen close to Amalienborg Castle and Kongens Nytorv. Madklubben Bistro-de-Luxe is still located at the very same spot and guests still flock to The popular eatery to indulge in great food served at more than fair prices.

Much has happened during the first 10 years and the Madklubben family now boasts an equal amount of branches: 10 different kinds each with its own unique character and concept. But we never rest and are thus also planning a range of new exciting projects. That’s why we’ve decided to celebrate turning 10 by focusing on where Madklubben as a brand is heading for the future.

As a result we’re giving you the opportunity to participate in three very different ”food clubs” scheduled to take place in late April and early May. Here we’ll explore some of the themes set to inspire the coming development of our restaurant concepts. This will include themes such as The Middle East, social responsibility, sustainability, plant based food and the talents of tomorrow.

SOLD OUT! Sunday April 30th at 6 pm: “The Green Food Club”:

Our chefs are giving meat a time-out. In stead they’ll be cooking solely with vegetables, plants and herbs in all different shapes and sizes. Get ready for a dining experience that will benefit the environment, your body and economy alike. Though Madklubben has no intention of becoming a full time vegetarian restaurant we are looking to strengthen the use of greens at all of our eateries.

Price: DKK 200 per person for 4 courses – drinks not included
Where: Madklubben Bistro-de-Luxe, Store Kongensgade 66
Tickets: SOLD OUT!

SOLD OUT! Sunday May 7th at 6 pm: ”The Responsible Food Club”:

Here at Madklubben we’ll soon embark on a collaboration with company entrée, which helps refugees and migrants find work, purpose and new direction through employment at restaurants in Copenhagen. The head chef and employees of entrée will assist our chefs in creating and serving a Middle-Eastern feast that also echoes the news of our coming restaurant Bazaar set to open in late summer.

Price: DKK 300 per person for 10-15 dishes served ”family style” to share – drinks not included
Where: Madklubben Bistro-de-Luxe, Store Kongensgade 66
Tickets: SOLD OUT!

SOLD OUT! Sunday May 14th at 6 pm: ”The Talented Food Club”:

In our kitchens the talented chefs are the ones who make it all happen. Some are fully trained masters of their craft while others are still completing their apprenticeships. Cheering on ”the talents of tomorrow” we’ll give apprentices from several of Madklubben’s restaurants creative freedom in order for them to create a spectacular evening complete with a grand tasting menu, complementing wines and great atmosphere.

Price: DKK 500 for a surprise tasting menu with a minimum of 5 courses – including a glass of sparkling wine upon arrival and a full wine menu.
Where: Madklubben Bistro-de-Luxe, Store Kongensgade 66
Tickets: SOLD OUT!

Please note that all three events will be held as “social dinners” where you dine at communal tables next to new friends you just haven’t met yet.

Okay, okay, sorry about that headline pun. We’re not trying to yolk with you, it’s just that we’re hatching a plan to make sure you can also enjoy great food at fair prices at Madklubben’s restaurants during the holidays. Isn’t it nice to know that some-bunny is looking out for you this Easter?

Only a chicken will close down during ALL of Easter, and thus we aren’t talking massive changes to our regular opening hours. Several of our restaurants are always closed un Sundays, which will also be the case in the coming week. Get the full low down here:

Espresso Martini: Where to enjoy the coffee drink of your dreams in Copenhagen

Espresso Martini: Where to enjoy the coffee drink of your dreams in Copenhagen

On weekdays, Copenhageners love their coffee. On weekends, Copenhageners love their cocktails. The perfect combination is an obvious choice: Espresso Martini!

The mix of vodka, Kahlua and freshly brewed espresso results in a creamy, sweet and powerful concoction, which serves perfectly as a sensory punch when you need to back in gear after dinner or simply crave an energy boost on a night out on town.

Espresso Martini is a crowd favorite at several of our Madklubben family members. Check out the list beneath to get the full low down on where you can sip your Espresso Martini and how much it costs.

Cheers, and happy weekend!
