McKluud - The Wild West meets the classic urban area of Copenhagen.

When I'm in the mood for a couple of beers (I only drink "Odense pilsner" when I'm here, which is a rare beer in these parts), playing dice games with my friends and small-talking with strangers - McKluud is the place for me.

In the middle of the well-known street, Istedgade - between takeaway spots, newly opened restaurants, voluntary second-hand shops and discrete red-lighted basements – that is the home for the number 1 saloon in town.

The place is not difficult to find, as you walk down the street, it kind of sticks out from the other surrounding buildings, with its wooden panels and doors. Still, most people tend to walk past it, mostly because the appearance doesn't exactly welcome people other than bikers and drunks.

But inside none of the mentioned crowd is found. Instead, the place is packed with young students and locals who like cheap beers, cigarettes and a chat with friends and everyone else around them for that matter.

McKluud has been around since the '70s and not much has changed since then. It's still the same interior with a pool table in the back, music is played from the jukebox and smoking is still allowed inside.

Normally every day from Wednesday evening till Saturday is prime time. If you arrive late, it can be difficult to squeeze in and get a table.

Get your cowboy/girl on!

Airtrix Trampolinpark – Jump for joy

I’d recommend the 2-hour AirCombi, which will give you 1 hour of climbing and 1 hour of jumping – if you’re doing it right, you will be sweaty and wobbly.

Ingolfs Kaffebar – Wired is the word

"Ingolfs Kaffebar" in Copenhagen is a little bit of everything, but mainly it's a coffee house. Oh, and what I think is the most intimate, cosy music venue!
