In the Vesterbro district, divided into three distinct zones according to the dominant white, grey or brown-coloured buildings, the Meatpacking area was still reserved for butchers selling livestock and cold cuts in the 17th century.
While its name and history are inspired by the most fashionable neighbourhood of New York, the atmosphere in Copenhagen's Meatpacking district is quite similar as well. In 2005, after a decision from the city council to avoid the area becoming a ghost town, a plethora of galleries, cafes, bars, clubs and other arty addresses set up shop.
There you will find trendy Danish and international nightlife each evening, dine in fabulous restaurants and sip cocktails created by experienced mixologists. During the summer, mingle with hipsters who gather to shop at the local organic produce market. A friendly and trendy atmosphere that makes it a hotspot of the Danish avant-garde.
