Copenhagen: Fiskebaren

Written by Guest Blogger Emily Miller
In the entrance to Copenhagen’s old meatpacking district lies Fiskebaren. A modernistic fish bar that prides themselves on cooking local sustainable shellfish and seafood found in Denmark’s surrounding waters. Fiskebaren has set out to be one of the first of its kind in Copenhagen offering fresh, healthy, and delicious food in a contemporary setting and we believe it has done just that. Savor the culinary science and simplicity of raw local ingredients with their fantastic menu as well as personal wine suggestions from vineyards favored and trusted by Fiskebaren. The avant-garde bar scene may be chic and cutting-edge but the restaurant wants patrons to have “relaxed atmospheric and affordable experiences.” Fiskebaren has created an inviting ambiance to kick back and unwind on a comfy sofa, mingle at the bar, or enjoy starry nights on the deck.

Established in 2005 by Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou, SPACE is known for “defying habits and employing a sincere personal vision to their design,” Signe and Peter transcend many areas of the design industry but pride themselves on their breathtaking restaurant design portfolio with Fiskebaren being one of them.  They have beautifully molded the old with the new creating a timelessly trendy dining experience.
