Edit: definitely check out the time out place, some of the food is amazing and it's cheap as chips as it's mainly smaller dishes from all the top restaurants.

This is perfect, thank you

And for coffee, Copenhagen Coffee Lab (a few locations) and The Mill (I'm sure there are others but I didn't get chance to try them)

Yes very good. One of my favourite cities. Some awesome restaurants and bars, cafes, places to explore etc.

I last went there when Christiana was still a thing. Even more crazy than Berlins Tacheles. Both closed down cos too much 'fun' was had at them Sad

https://restaurantgorilla.dk/ this is really good for a multiple course-er new Nordic type thing if that’s what you fancy ( and can’t get into noma)

War pigs around the corner is great too.

https://mother.dk/ This is amazing for pizza.

Would absolutely recommend the trip to https://louisiana.dk/en/ about 45 mins on train I think but we’ll worth it.

Also Tivoli is worth a wander.

Oh yeah. Loved Tivoli. Like stepping back in time. Cool

Also found it cool how an Amusement Park is slap bang in the middle of the City Centre.

Just spent a weekend there, lovely as always, just the right size for a few days break.

Would recommend Patè Patè for dinner and Fleisch for lunch\smorrebrod, they are next to each other, and both in the Meatpacking area, where also Gorilla recommended above is.

Always around Meatpacking, if you're into beers (and BBQ as said above), there is Warpigs, a collab brewpub by Mikkeller and Three Floyds, but I'd strongly recommend Fermentoren for beers as it's considerably cheaper than those around and has 20 beers on tap.
Amager Bryghus is another good option for beers, with a few locations around town.
In Norrebro, another good beer place is Brus, and just next to it there a good bakery for breakfast\lunch called Mirabelle.

In addition to Pompette, also Sabotoren is good for wine, again around Norrebro area.

Coffee Collective and Roast Coffee both have different locations around town for coffee\breakfast.
In Israel Plads there's a covered market where you can also have lunch, don't know if it's open late for dinner.

Anyone done any travelling at all in the Deep South in the US?
South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi or Louisiana?

Should probably elaborate:
So looking to do a road trip. Want to do/see a lot of nature, so any decent must-sees?
Plus obviously visiting cities and towns, going to blues bars etc

Spent quite a bit of time working Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana before. Drop me a message and will give you some details.

It's a lot of ground to cover but would recommend including Tennessee in that trip.

The drive across from Atlanta/GA into Alabama and then Mississppi is long and quite boring, one long freeway. Be much better to head slightly north upto Nashville and across west to Memphis, then down in Oxford MS then across the delta down into Louisiana. The Lake Pontchartrain Causeway bridge drive into New Orleans is great on a clear day.

Tivoli is well worth visting, as has been said. If you want hotdogs, go to DØP.

Avoid the Little Mermaid statue, its tiny and rammed with tourists. Main shopping area from memory for Norse Store etc. is Kronprinsensgade and Pilestræde.

The market at Torvehallerne is good as well.

If you hate heights and fancy shitting yourself head up the Church of Our Saviour, I have never been up a building so horrendous. Laughing out loud

If you want culture, Amalienborg area and Rosenborg Castle are worth a visit, as is the Rundetaarn. Carlsberg Factory isn't too bad but is a fair trek away from the city.

Roskilde is a 35 min train journey and is pretty impressive, but not much there other than that. Think going to Salisbury or Stonehenge in terms of lack of other stuff to do!
