Welcome to Madklubben Vesterbro

An urban, vibrant eatery packed with great design: That’s Madklubben Vesterbro! We have room for more than 300 guests but the restaurant is cleverly designed to serve up cozy dining experiences. For two years in a row we have been named “The most visited restaurant in Denmark”, and the menu offers a wide array of scrumptious dishes from around the world. We don’t care much about rules or borders as long as the food is packed with great taste. Madklubben Vesterbro also houses a cocktail bar – great for a visit before, after or independently of your dinner.

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!

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: On sale now through shop.madklubben.dk (only available in Danish)

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: On sale now through shop.madklubben.dk (only available in Danish)

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:

New restaurants: Madklubben Nørrebro and Gran Torino 2.0 are now open!

New restaurants: Madklubben Nørrebro and Gran Torino 2.0 are now open!

Just as January kissed February ”hello” we here at Madklubben welcomed to no less that two new restaurants. Well, more like 1,5 new restaurants, seeing at our popular Italian pizza pusher Gran Torino just moved to a new location. But with a brand new decor and ditto menu concept it definitely qualifies as  ”breaking foodie news” as well.

Gran Torino moved from its former courtyard space out to 5 Sortedam Dossering right on the bank of Copenhagen’s ”Lakes”. It’s a smaller space but with the perfect atmosphere for an urban pizza place sporting both classic and more gourmet inspired pies. Complete with retired merry-go-round horses, a big window between the busy chefs and hungry diners and a brand new menu concept, Gran Torino version 2.0 opened its doors on February 3rd.

Following a series of test dinners in late January, Madklubben Nørrebro finally opened on Gran Torino’s former address on February 6th. Expect a bustling neighborhood spot featuring yummy dishes from the Middle East and beyond fresh from the roaring flame grill. The interior mixes modernist Danish furniture design with rustic industrial details from the venue’s warehouse past. Check out the full menu here.

Both Gran Torino and Madklubben Nørrebro (surprise!) can be found in Copenhagen’s vibrant district of Nørrebro: A cultural melting pot where immigrants mix with students and creative locals surrounded by cool little shops, inspiring eateries and thirst quenching bars.

Speaking of the latter why not check out our very own Nørrebro cocktail hot spot Bar Next Door while you’re in town?
