5 rooftop restaurants / bars to visit this summer

Posted by

Let’s be honest – some of us are still in our winter jackets.

But despite the chilly weather – we have been enjoying the sunny days, since errr, the lockdown?

Now that the country is reopening up, we can finally get some air – and all savor some long-awaited gourmet bites.

We are looking forward to visiting these rooftops:

Gro Spiseri

This rooftop eatery is an urban oasis in Osterbro, Copenhagen. Upon climbing up the stairs, you are greeted by a lavishly green rooftop garden, where some of the ingredients are harvested fresh. At the beautifully adorned greenhouse, enjoy a 6-course seasonal dinner served ‘family style’ (495DKK). The menu is very popular and there’s usually a waiting list. So hurry up!

The rooftop bar

The name says it all – Hotel Denmark‘s top-floor terrace is the rooftop bar to be in Copenhagen. Enjoy fantastic view of the city hall, tivoli and more as you lounge and sip cocktails while soaking up all the sun in the airy location. Summer hygge at its best!

Illum’s roof terrace

There are many restaurants at the iconic Illum mall in downtown Copenhagen. Some of which on the top-floor offer a nice alfresco vibe. But to be honest – none of the restaurants are that impressive food-wise. So leave the food to the tourists but you can still have a great time having a cool beer or nice glass of wine at the terrace overlooking the busy Købmagegade. On the other hand, Original Coffee, is our top choice there! It has the best view among all F&B joints in Illums – and the quality of their fares are uncompromised. Grab a cup of aromatic coffee, a piece of freshly based danish pastry and an uninterrupted view of Christiansborg. We simply can’t wait.

CitizenM

Very few Copenhageners know of this new hotel and therefore we have been keeping CanteenM a secret. The new design hotel’s lobby / living room / cafe / bar / restaurant offers no-nonse all-day-dining options with a view. With floor to ceiling windows and a long patio, CanteenM gives you a poster-perfect place to unwind whilst enjoying the spacious view of the City Hall plaza opened up not long again (due to the decade-long metro construction).

DAC Cafe

We don’t know when the museums are going to be opened yet, but when it does, we are pretty sure Denmark Architecture Center‘s topfloor dining spot will be busy again. The spacious cafe has 3 rooftop terraces, one of which has an expansive harhorfront view, and another overlooking the charming old streets surrounding the inner canals. On weekends, get a special deal with exhibition admission and brunch buffet at 185DKK only.
