The different neighborhoods of Copenhagen each have their charm, yet there’s something extraordinary about the waterfronts. If you can find Kayak Bar under the bridge by Christiansborg Palace you’re undoubtedly in for a real treat! I think the idea of Kayak Bar was originally to create a hangout spot for the different watersport enthusiasts who store their gear and have sort of a club house here. This is a place for enjoying your hobbies in close encounter with the water. If your hobby might be kayaking around the canals or maybe, like me, sipping a glass of cool wine on the floating beach with sand, palm trees and sunchairs… No difference. Either way you’ll feel the gentle waves of the Copenhagen canals!
They have a fixed selection of dishes, but they usually promote a deal of the day. Could be grilled fish, kebab, stews or soups.
During the winter period they’ve installed a cute little sauna sitting on the dock with a view towards the city and water. And it’s free! Bring a towel, you’ll be able to change and store your clothes in the club house. Kayak Bar regularly hosts different kinds of events – music, movies, flea markets or quizzes. Personally, I love the quizzes and to actually interact informally with the staff and other guests there. Check their website for specific details and events.
