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.

On Monday the 21st and Tuesday the 22nd of August the regular diners at Madklubben Vesterbro experienced quite the sight to behold: Multiple times throughout the evenings groups of 10 people sat down at two tables in the middle of the restaurant while wearing Virtual Reality goggles and large headphones.

As part of Copenhagen Cooking & Food Festival we had – together with Vesterbro based Virtual Reality hub Khora – created a 45 minute long taste journey featuring four alternative realities. The goal was to examine whether the sense of smell and taste could enforce the feeling of ”travelling” somewhere else without ever having to leave one’s chair.

The first snack consisted of savory popcorn served in a cinema. Afterwards the guests went to Florence and Venice while nibbling on a classic tomato and mozzarella bruschetta. As the evening progressed the scenarios got more and more exotic with a trip to a marketplace in Karachi, Pakistan serving up vegetarian curry ”street food style” and a combined jungle/beach vacation in Brazil complete with an exotic fruit cocktail to cool off with.

Whoa! Madklubben Vesterbro has been listed as one of Denmark’s 11 best restaurants

Whoa! Madklubben Vesterbro has been listed as one of Denmark’s 11 best restaurants

The Madklubben family’s largest restaurant, Madklubben Vesterbro, is buzzing with a positive atmosphere at the moment and it’s not hard to understand why. Our budget friendly eatery in the heart of Copenhagen’s vibrant district of Vesterbro has recently been handpicked for a new guide listing 11 top restaurants in Denmark.

The guide was created by the global travel media outlet The Culture Trip boasting 7 million readers each month as well as a social media following of 3 million people. In other words it’s a recognition, which makes our skilled team of chefs, waiters and bartenders beam with pride. As opposed to many other classic travel guides, at The Culture Trip they aren’t afraid to mix fine dining and more unpretentious restaurants resulting in a set of recommendations for the modern foodie who doesn’t care too much about stiff rules and labels but in stead enjoys eating across the the board of categories.

The Culture Trip writes in the guide:

”Delicious dishes, elegant interior design, and Copenhagen’s stylish crowd are the words that could describe Madklubben best. Located at Vesterbro, the chic restaurant is definitely a fit to the hip atmosphere of the area. ”

Tempted to visit the restaurant yourself? Explore the full menu on offer from Madklubben Vesterbro here and book your table quickly and easily online. The latter is always a good idea due to a fact also mentioned by The Culture Trip:

”The place is packed even during the week with locals and tourists.”

Madklubben is all set to return to Roskilde Festival

Madklubben is all set to return to Roskilde Festival

The scrumptious taste of steak and béarnaise in a brioche bun. Creamy risotto with melted cheese and summer veggies. There’s no doubt that we expected our dishes to fare well with the average music festival goer when Madklubben debuted at Roskilde Festival in 2016. But nothing could prepare us for the explosion of foodie love and hungry guests that actually hit us. 5.000 meals were prepared, but when the music died out we had served no less than 12.500 guests from our little stand.

It was wild, it was overwhelming and we can’t wait to do it all again. Because Madklubben will return to Scandinavia’s largest festival and you’ll once again find us in the covered Food Court from Wednesday June 28th until the early hours of Sunday July 2nd.

Since last year our restaurants have received countless requests for us to put the already legendary Steak ’n’ Béarnaise Sandwich on the menu. But it remains a greasy and irresistible unicorn only to be spotted at very special occasions. You can read more about the specific content of our festival dishes below, and though they are very different they also share an obligation to Roskilde Festival’s goal of cooking with at least 90% organic ingredients.

Steak ’n’ Béarnaise Sandwich:

At several of our restaurants the classic steak béarnaise is king. So naturally there was no doubt that the combination of tender beef and creamy béarnaise had to be turned into a festival favorite. Get ready for a toasted brioche bun filled with organic Danish beef, warm béarnaise, romaine lettuce, tomatoes and pickles onions. The perfect dish for your hangovers priced at only DKK 65.

Pearl Barley Risotto:

Whether you live a full on vegetarian lifestyle or simply want to cut back on your meat consumption in order to help the environment our summer risotto will keep you asking for more. A creamy mixture of pearl barley and organic cheese accompanied by broccoli, asparagus, carrots and radishes. Just have the munchies? Then go for half a portion for DKK 35. Otherwise go all in with a full portion for DKK 55.

We look forward to spoiling you with great food served at fair prices at Roskilde Festival 2017!

Madklubben Frederiksberg is open for reservations!

Now it’s official: On Friday the 26th of May we open the doors to Madklubben Frederiksberg. We look forward to serving up great food at more than fair prices in a beautiful and historic building, which used to be functioning train station.

For the first period of time we will only be open for dinner, while we get to know our new kitchen and surroundings. Though it won’t be long until we’re also ready to welcome guests for breakfast and lunch.

The very first à la carte menu is online now, and you can look forward to crowd favorites such as steak tartare, veal fricassee, steak béarnaise, seared tuna and chocolate mousse.

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.
