Playtype Concept Store It's a letter thing featured

Have you ever been fixated by a particular font? By the curvature of single letter? Its bends, its curves, its personality! There’s no need to feel alone in this world anymore, Playtype understands you…

Their store in Vesterbro gives physical form to their beautifully designed modern fonts. From posters and notepads, to mugs and rain ponchos, if it’s got big fat sexy letters all over it, you can probably find it here. Word of warning: You might not need to know your ligature from your ball terminal, but if you don’t know your serif from your sans serif, probably best to give this one a miss.

Fortunen Nordic nonchalance featured

It’s not easy to make the transition from daylight nosher to late-night swiller, but Fortunen makes a sterling job of it. Their (poorly kept) secret? Craft local brews on tap, mean cocktails flowing from the mixers and a consistent lineup of DJs who fall firmly into the ‘up and coming’ category (read: unknown but damn good). The main draw of this establishment, though, is still its food.

The term gastropub is often abused to justify ridiculous prices for small dishes, so we won’t do Fortunen the injustice of calling it that. It’s rather a casual modern eatery with a mix-and-match approach to dining. They recommend two to four dishes per person, so it’s best to go with an unfussy friend and get really stuck into the menu. The grilled hanger steak is not to be missed, though it’s pretty hard to put a foot wrong.

KB18 Dirty little rave secrets featured

Copenhagen may be a pretty clean city but that doesn’t mean its residents don’t know how to get down and dirty with the best of ‘em. Nowhere more so than the bare concrete warehouse rave-hole that is KB18. This is a place where the decks are set up on wooden slats, fat speaker stacks are about the only decorative flourish, DJs are face-to-face with wide-eyed shape-throwers and the idea of a ‘dress code’ is utterly alien. Because when you’ve been raving for several hours straight to an eclectic set of sounds that encompasses anything from psi-trance to tech-house and garage to drum n’ bass, you should be allowed to enter a state of dishevelled undress to cool yourself down. Right? Damn right.

Motto Charlottenborg Cultural compendium

The integrity of tangible books might be in jeopardy, but places like Motto Charlottenborg remain ever-resilient to change. Cross-genre in nature, Motto is housed in an elegant art hall and cultural hot spot. A self-publishing showcase, the walls boast an array of vibrant pièces de résistance of the aesthetic world, while open space for exhibitions, forums, and lectures allows lovers of the medium to wax poetic about the function of publishing and writing in a fast-paced world.

Hotel D'Angleterre Beds fit for a princess featured

The grand old dame of Copenhagen hotels, the D’Angleterre has been around since 1755. Since then it has garnered a plenitude of history and stories to be told. It was here that the first draft for Denmark’s constitution was presented, thereby ending the king’s absolute power in Danish affairs. Anyone from visiting royalty, politicians and rock stars have lived here, as well as defeated generals and fugitives from war.

All in all, the D’Angleterre with its 123 rooms and 19 suites is a Danish landmark. Offering guests the utmost luxury, you can expect to be well taken care of if you chose to stay here. Indoor swimming pool, spa, in-house masseuses, and 24-hour room service are ready to cater to your every need.

Currently, the D’Angleterre is closed for renovation. It is slated to reopen in May 2013 as one of the most exclusive hotels in all of Scandinavia.
