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 classics brings life to beautiful dishes. The interior design boasts stunning wood paneling, leather couches and Eames chairs alongside rustic 19th century architectural details.

Now Bazaar opens: This you can expect from a visit at Madklubben’s new restaurant

Crooked, earth colored walls of tiles, over dimensioned gilded lamps, an oscillating, yellow starry ceiling of lamps contrasted to black paint underneath and lots of small dishes served for sharing. All a tribute to the food culture stretching all the way from Syria in the East along the Mediterranean coast to the south of Spain and onwards down to Morocco in North Africa. Welcome to Bazaar: Madklubben’s new, voluminous restaurant located in an old post office in the center of Copenhagen.

3 years a long the way:

The concept of Bazaar has been under development for more than 3 years, and in the last year we have been working on building the exact restaurant of our dreams. An eatery shaped by the enchanting unknown. An eatery with inspiration from several of the world’s richest and most tradition bound kitchens, but interpreted through young, creative and Copenhagen based eyes and hands. Bazaar is not a set decoration. Bazaar is not pastiche. Bazaar is not a nostalgic longing for somewhere far away in time and place. Bazaar is here and now!

Price friendly tasting menus:

When you take place by one of the more than 150 seating options at Bazaar, you have several choices on the food front. Enjoy a shareable tasting menu of 15 dishes with vegetables, fish and meat for just DKK 375 per person. Alternatively, you can enjoy an exotic, plant-based dining experience with 10 vegan dishes served to share at the price of DKK 225 per person.

Feel more like exploring the bazaar on your own? Then you can pick and choose from the menu with more than 35 creations containing both small snacks and larger dishes. Our concept focuses on the social aspect of dining out, which is why we plate everything on trays and in bowls to be shared around the table. Order 3 to 5 dishes per person as well as an array of mezze as a prelude to your meal.

Almost fully booked in the opening week:

There has been great interest to get a table at Bazaar in the opening week but there is still a few available seats if you wish to be one of the very first guests at Bazaar. You can read more about the menu and the concept of Bazaar by clicking here, just as you nice and easily can get an overview of possibly available tables via our online booking right here.Bazaar

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

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.

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 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!

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.

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!
