Welcome to Madklubben Bistro-de-Luxe

The very first Madklubben is still located in the heart of historic Copenhagen close to Amalienborg Castle and The King’s Garden. Take a few steps down from street level to an elegant, streamlined and price conscious restaurant experience where a modern interpretation of Danish and European traditions merge beautifully on the plate. The interior design boasts stunning wood paneling, leather couches and Eames chairs alongside rustic 19th century architectural details.

New menu: Madklubben Bistro-de-Luxe serves delicious winter dishes

It’s the taste of nostalgia and favorite dishes you find in the basement at the Store Kongensgade street in the heart of Copenhagen. Here we at Madklubben Bistro-de-Luxe welcome you inside to cozy sorroundings (and dry weather!) and serve you your top choices from our new winter menu.

At Madklubben Bistro-de-Luxe we create winter dishes with a touch of classic taste elements, a portion of free interpretation and a squeeze of elegant details as the icing on the cake. Enjoy a starter of cured beef with savory brown sugar sauce, crunchy hazelnuts, smoked mayo and salt-baked celery. Continue the festivities in a main dish of stuffed quail with a sweet quince compote, crispy cabbage and a long pepper sauce. You combine your own one, two or three course dinner, but if you wanna try out a Funen favorite we suggest you try our “brunsviger”. Our take on the Danish baker’s classic consists of a combination of a soft butter bun topped off with cardamom ice cream full of flavor and a sweet brown sugar sauce.

Take a closer look at our full menu right here and at our selection of the new dishes in pictures below. Has this post caused an urgent hunger? Book a table fast and easy online right here. We look forward to be welcoming you at Madklubben Bistro-de-Luxe.

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!

While some need a little more rest, one of our restaurants opens again already on January the 1st .

Check the list below to get a full overview of the opening hours at all of our 14 restaurants and one cocktail bar. In the days before and after the listed dates we are open as normal unless otherwise is stated.

Last chance: See where we still have available seats for New Year’s

Last chance: See where we still have available seats for New Year’s

Oh sweet month of Christmas, where are you going? Time flies, soon it’s December 24th, and before we know it, we once again face the welcoming of a new and exciting year.

But if you still haven’ planned how to round off 2017 and greet 2018,  then we suggest that you stop by our webshop, where you can still find tickets for a refined New Year’s Eve dinner at one of Madklubben’s restaurants. But hurry – just as New Year’s fireworks the ticket sale has been an explosive affair so far.

To get the full overview of our restaurants and remaining tickets, take a look at Madklubben’s webshop right here.

Madklubben Bistro-de-Luxe is looking forward to welcome 2018 with you

Madklubben Bistro-de-Luxe is looking forward to welcome 2018 with you

Madklubben’s original restaurant in the heart of historic Copenhagen will create fireworks on the plate on New Year’s Eve. (Metaphorically speaking of course). Enjoy a full journey with snacks, a reinterpretation of the classic Danish “New Year’s Cod”, a juicy steak, Danish cheese and several kinds of sweet treats.

Enter 2018 filled with love, New Year’s Eve spirit and lots of great food and wine. Madklubben Bistro-de-Luxe have for the past many years been serving our take on a grand New Year’s Eve dinner and once again we are looking forward to welcome you this year. In our basement in Store Kongensgade is where the (Madklubben) party started and that we haven’t forgotten about.

Let us serve you a dinner which will end 2017 with style and welcome 2018 with open arms. Explore our New Year’s Eve menu with snacks made of chicken skin, cured beef and crisps with porcini remoulade, for starters our salt and sugar marinated cod, tempered egg yolk, fried capers, beetroot and a mustard vinaigrette with browned butter and not to forget our 250g entrecôte with grilled and pickled onions, celery cream and parsley sauce with smoked marrow for the main course. End 2017 in style when we besides dessert also serve up both cheese and traditional Danish marcipan New Year’s cake.

Take part in our New Year’s celebrations for the great price of DKK 500 by clicking here. Spice up your evening by purchasing our wine menu here. Are you bringing the kids? No worries. We offer a “children edition” of our New Year’s Eve menu for half the price right here! On our webpage, you’ll also find practical information and luxurious additional options such as caviar, oysters and seared foie gras on your steak.

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!

Madklubben Bistro-de-Luxe serves up a modern Christmas dinner – are you coming?

Madklubben Bistro-de-Luxe serves up a modern Christmas dinner – are you coming?

At Madklubben Bistro-de-Luxe we serve up Danish and European classics with a contemporary twist. Enjoy the ”hygge” that seeps through every corner of our very first restaurant in the heart of Copenhagen.

At Madklubben Bistro-de-Luxe we don’t just serve our take on traditional holiday gastronomy. – In our restaurant on “Store Kongensgade” we put in quite an effort not to bore you, which is why we love to play around with the expression and interior design of our restaurant. Among our shimmering lights, tiles as red as Rudolf’s nose and both square and round tables, we’ve sneaked in a bucketload of Christmas spirit, and we can’t wait to welcome you all!

We also play around in the kitchen when we experiment with a fresh take on the traditional Christmas servings. Try our duck liver terrine with quince compote and toasted brioche, the rib eye steak with pickled onions, caramelized Jerusalem artichoke purée and a sauce of parsley oil and finish off with the Danish “krydderkage” – a cake baked with Christmas spices and served with ice cream and prunes soaked in armagnac.

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.

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!

End 2017 with a bang at one of Madklubben’s restaurants in Copenhagen. Our skilled chefs have developed a range of delicious and elegant menus, which can be enjoyed at our beautiful venues across town from as little as DKK 500 per person. If you know just a little about New Year’s prices in the Danish capital, you’ll also know that it’s quite the scoop.

While some of our restaurants serve up a menu for DKK 500 with the option of adding a tailored wine menu other restaurants have opted to include the beverages in the package price, which will run at DKK 1.000 as a result. At Alabama Social and Bar Next Door they’re pulling out all the stops with spectacular wines and cocktails resulting in a seat price of DKK 1.200 and DKK 1.400 respectively.

Get the full low down on all your dining options for New Year’s Eve on December 31st 2017 and secure your tickets already today. Tickets for Madklubben Østerbro and Hanzō will be released in the coming weeks.

International praise: Madklubben named ”Affordable Restaurant of the Year” in Denmark

International praise: Madklubben named ”Affordable Restaurant of the Year” in Denmark

“Affordable Restaurant of the Year 2018, Denmark.” Thus reads the full title that we’ve just received at our original restaurant in Store Kongensgade in the heart of historic Copenhagen. The brand behind the award is the British publication Luxury Travel Guide. We’re immensely proud of the distinction, which we attribute to our team of skilled chefs and passionate waiters.

With a following of almost 100.000 people on social media and a print count of 500.000 magazines and 200.000 guide books each year we’re humbled by this honor. Luxury Travel Guide contacted us during the summer and asked for pictures, a concept description and the current menu to be evaluated alongside other great Copenhagen establishments by an expert jury from the international travel and hospitality industry.

Even though Madklubben Bistro-de-Luxe is the oldest restaurant in the “family” it’s still our culinary pride. A place where gastronomic traditions from Denmark and Europe are interpreted as unpretentious “gourmet light” dishes with a price tag starting at a mere DKK 200 for a three course menu.
