Row NYC Making you feel brand new featured

Running a hotel in a city that never sleeps might sound like a bad idea. But firstly, it’s only a catchphrase people. And secondly, there’s a new breed of hotels that are harnassing rather than fighting the raw energy of the city – without sacrificing even one of your forty winks.

Since opening towards the start of 2014, Row NYC is a front-runner is this regard and as part of a…

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

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.

Geranium Norse star featured

Geranium has got the art of producing high quality, inventive Nordic cuisine down to a goddamn science—and they’ve got two Michelin stars to prove it. Not one to let its decor—the epitome of sedately tasteful—do the talking, it’s what goes on in the glass-walled open kitchen that speaks for this gastronomical game-changer. Locally sourced and often unusual ingredients (fresh fish, lobster and pine needles amongst) are taken by head chef Rasmus Kofoed and fused with alchemical brilliance to produce dishes designed to stimulate senses one and all. And it all tastes so good that your stomach will be open-gulleted and begging for more before it’s even started digesting the first bite.
