A walk on the wild side - Danish style

We are queer, we were there, and we were not going shopping. Six gay guys were visiting Copenhagen this Easter, and we had to try to take a walk on the wild side - Danish style. We were wild at two bars/restaurants, so completely different from each other as possible. We walked to a designer lounge where the smart set meets in Copenhagen and to one of the nicest gay cafées I have experienced until now.

CODE - cold design for the smart set

CODE is located in Rådhusstrædet in central Copenhagen. It calls itself a gay lounge bar, serving sandwiches, cakes and coffee during day, turning into a cosy lounge by night. Personally I did not find it "cosy", but chic and rather cold and hostile.

We enjoyed a few colourful cocktails at CODE, but even if we rested our tired bums on smart and comfortable designer leather sofas, we were soon bored enough to leave CODE rather early.

A favorite to return to - Oscar!!

Oscar is a traditional gay café located by the Copenhagen City Hall. Here you may sit down and enjoy food and a glass of wine in a laid back atmosphere during day. During evening and night Oscar is filled up by good friends over a pint or a glass of wine. Oscar is in fact so popular by the Copenhagen gay crowd that you may have problem to find anywhere to sit or even stand during night.

Oscar offers a wide range of dishes at reasonable prices (€6-13), salads, sandwiches, open sandwiches, light meals and more during day and evenings. For me Oscar is a place to return to when travelling to Copenhagen.
