For me, two out of three times a night out in Kødbyen (Copenhagen’s so called Meatpacking District) ends with dancing at Jolene. Honestly, I try to get my groove on at other bars around the area, cause it’s no secret that Kødbyen is bursting with after-dark-opportunities, but I guess for me it’s once Jolene, always Jolene.
It’s a place with character… The intimate and friendly vibe in the worn out butcher’s house attracts a diverse crowd, and you can expect to run into some interesting people here – open-mindedness is key! There’s no entrance fee and the bar has fair prices. It’s customary to order bottled beer or long drinks, nothing too fancy. And oh, I should mention the music. In my opinion, Jolene never fails at the DJ-lineup: primarily hot Danish acts.
A bit of a warning, though – this is like the bar. The space is narrow and everybody wants to dance on weekends, apparently always around midnight. But the more, the merrier, right? Make it your last stop before getting a taxi home.
