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.)

Where to eat? Where to drink? Where to let the kids play? Where to go partying? Those are just some of the questions that Danish blogger Cecilie Rubini aka. Sneglcille sets out to answer in her newly published guide to summertime fun in Copenhagen (in Danish).

Cecilie has been writing for 8 years and was recently elected to be part of the brand new and handpicked blogging community Confetti CPH. Her ability to seek out quality minded, irresistible and oftentimes ”off the beaten path” experiences comes through in the tempting article titled ”On vacation in Copenhagen: With and without kids.”

In her guide Cecilie has – in her own words – collected ”all her favorite places”. We’re super proud that Madklubben’s restaurant family is mentioned as a must when trying to decide on where to go out for dinner in the Danish capital:

”There are many restaurants to chose between, but my favorites are Steak Royal, Bistro Royal, Gran Torino and Tony’s. At the first two you HAVE to order the Coupe Royal for dessert.”

Wondering what a Coupe Royal is? Then check out our tribute article to the sinful dessert mixing ice cream, caramel, nuts and Oreos (in Danish). You can read more about each of Cecilie’s Madklubben recommendations by clicking on the various restaurant names in the quote above.

Have a great summer! We hope to see you at one of our restaurants soon…

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? French? Or maybe just play it safe with a great steak? On Sunday August 20th 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 the heart of historic Copenhagen, 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 Bistro Royal at Kongens Nytorv, Tony’s in Havnegade and Madklubben Bistro-de-Luxe in Store Kongensgade – all conveniently located in the city centre so you can walk or bike from one place to another.

Check out this video from last year’s Food Crawl hosted at our restaurants in Nørrebro:

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

Do you know a foodie who would love to visit three different restaurants in just one night? Then why not read more about the event and how to secure tickets right here. Don’t forget that we’re hosting a similar Food Crawl in vibrant city district of Nørrebro a week later on Sunday August 27th where you’ll get to visit Gran Torino, Alabama Social and Madklubben Nørrebro.

All our restaurants except Madklubben Vesterbro will be closed on Monday June 5th

All our restaurants except Madklubben Vesterbro will be closed on Monday June 5th

Monday June 5th. Second day of Pentecost. Day of the Danish Constitution. Father’s Day. We have many names for things we like and this year we will ad yet another one to the list: “Double Trouble Birthday Bash”.

We’ve invited all the employees from Madklubben’s big restaurant family to a grand party celebrating the 10 year anniversary of the very first Madklubben restaurant as well as the 40th birthday of our founder and CEO, Anders Aagaard. We feel like we all deserve to eat well, drink well and dance ugly for one night.

But don’t despair if you’ve been planning on dining out on Monday June 5th. We’ve called in some extra help in order to keep Madklubben Vesterbro open for service. Check out their scrumptious menu here and book your table online with just a few clicks.

PLEASE NOTE that Bistro Royal will also be closed for breakfast on Tuesday June 6th in order to give our colleagues a fair chance to recover. Thank you for your kind understanding.

Join us for a Food Crawl through three different restaurants in one night!

Join us for a Food Crawl through three different restaurants in one night!

So many good restaurants – so little time! Inspired by the classic pub crawl we’ve created two different Food Crawl events, which replaces booze with food and lets you dine at 3 different restaurants in just one night. It all goes down during Copenhagen Cooking & Food Festival this coming August.

On Sunday August 20th we cook up a Food Crawl in Copenhagen’s city center featuring Italian crowd favorite Tony’s, the elegant Bistro Royal and our very first restaurant, Madklubben Bistro-de-Luxe. You can either walk or bike between the participating venues combining to a route measuring approx. 1,5 kilometers.

On Sunday August 27th we move to the vibrant city district of Nørrebro, where our American soul food eatery Alabama Social, Italian neighborhood spot Gran Torino and popular Madklubben Nørrebro will host their own Food Crawl. You can walk between the three restaurants, which are located right next to each other on the same street.

Madklubben’s Food Crawl concept breaks the boundaries of a classic dining experience. Eat your way from restaurant to restaurant without ever leaving town. While some guests get their own table, others should be prepared to dine with new friends at communal tables or at a dining bar with a view of the kitchen. Besides 3 courses served at 3 different venues the ticket price also includes a glass of bubbly upon arrival. Additional beverages can be ordered and paid on the evening just as discounted drinks packages will be available.

Grand plans: We are working on more than 6 new restaurants in Copenhagen

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.
