Thursday the 23rd of June marks Midsummer’s Eve in Denmark and according to tradition people of all ages will flock to large bonfires and sing songs with their friends and family. Don’t miss out on this thoroughly Danish tradition: Check out our guide to where you can find a bonfire near every single one of Madklubben’s restaurants and bars.
Whether you’re going for classic dishes at Bistro Royal, modern cooking with French and Nordic roots at Madklubben Bistro-de-Luxe or rustic Italian fare at Tony’s the most impressive bonfire will take place at historic Nyhavn. The fire is lit at 10 pm and will be floating on a pram in the middle of the harbour.
If you’re on the lookout for delicious steaks, then head to newly refurbished Madklubben Steak in Pilestræde or elegant Steak Royal by City Hall. After dinner take a 5-10 minute stroll to the lush Ørsted Park right by Nørreport Station. Here you will find another floating fire in the middle of the lake starting at 10 pm.
Steak Royal is also located close to renowned amusement park Tivoli Gardens in the beginning of the Vesterbro neighborhood. Here the bonfire will start at 9:30 pm but remember that you have to pay an entry fee to the park.
Sit down for dinner at our vast urban eatery Madklubben Vesterbro located in the heart of the vibrant city district. Being one of the densest urban environments in Copenhagen you have to walk a bit in order to find the open and inviting Enghaveparken. Here they have no less than two different fires on the programme: One for the kids starting at 6 pm and a big one for the grownups beginning at 9 pm.
Come visit one of our three restaurants right on the bank of the manmade lakes separating the city centre from the bustling and multi-ethnic district of Nørrebro. Alabama Social serves up American soul food, while Hanzō dishes the delights on the Pan Asian Kitchen and Gran Torino prepares and Italian feast for all budgets.
Once you’ve downed your dinner walk no further than to the waterfront where two different bonfires will take place: One at Kaffesalonen near Dronning Louises Bridge starting at 10 pm and another at Sølund Care Center and Fredensbro kicking off already at 8:45 pm.
If you get thirsty from all the smoke and flames our popular cocktail pusher in Nørrebro, Bar Next Door, will be open until midnight. We wish you and you loved ones a wonderful Midsummer’s Eve and look forward to welcoming you at one of Madklubben’s restaurants.
