Travel Guide: Copenhagen

Nordic cool has become the new go to for most trendsetters in the world and Copenhagen is at the center of it. Street style websites now focus on places like Stockholm and Helsinki, while Scandinavian brands like Cheap Monday Acne have set new standards in style. Hop on a plane with us as we descend on Copenhagen, Denmark’s luxe capital, and tell you where to eat, sleep, and play.

ABOUT: Founded at least 900 years ago, Copenhagen is the center of Denmark’s political, musical, and cultural world. The city sits on two islands, with a small strait separating them, with most of the city sitting on the Western side.


STAY: First Hotel Skt Petri. Some people might say Skt Petri has lost its charm. They’re full of it. A big hotel with a boutique hotel style design, you get a spectacular view of the city, and rooms decorated in a very chic, very modern way.

SHOP: streetmachine, a phenomenal skate and streetwear store based in Copenhagen’s inner city. Founded in Paris in 1988, the Copenhagen location opened in 1996. A must hit for sneaker freakers and hypebeasts or anybody else who talks about how excited they are about the new Bape lookbooks.


SHOP: Norse Store. The home shop of Norse Projects, the famous Danish luxury brand, is in Copenhagen. One of the most eminent names in streetwear for the last few years, Norse Projects gets by on classic minimalist designs. Definitely worth checking out for those of you looking for a more grown-up look.

HEAR: KBIII, though Copenhagen has an explosive hip hop scene, electronic music still rules the Scandinavian airwaves. Hit KBIII to hear some of the best underground stuff in Denmark. Regular Saturday DJ Oh Boy! knows what the crowd wants to hear, and always keeps them wanting more. Definitely worth the price of admission.


EAT: Umami. Copenhagen doesn’t have a Nobu but they could care less. Hit up Umami, a fresh approach to Japanese food, presented with a French twist. 

SEE: FC København, the city’s football (soccer to the rest of us) team. Formed in 1992, FCK are babies compared to some of the other teams in Europe, but have gotten by on scouting young talent and a game that focuses on ball movement. Pay attention to Mustafa Abdellaoue, a Moroccan-Norwegian hoped to be the future of the Norwegian national team.
