Copenhagen is truly a great example of what could happen in a city where graffiti and street art is not constantly at war with the politicians and property owners. It’s a city where the public space is pretty close to free to the people of Copenhagen, parks and buildings are decorated with all types of art, this makes for a fantastic art gallery all over the city! This is the stuff that make my heart skip a beat, I’m a firm believer that we, the people of the world, would be much happier if our surroundings where covered in art instead of advertisement.
A great neighborhood in Copenhagen is Kødbyen. It’s all cute cobblestone mixed with industrial meatpacking wear houses. Very nice for nightlife! A lot of great bars, restaurants and clubs, or do what I did, hang out in a parking lot with amazing people and drink cheap can beer! If you don’t feel like doing that however, here are some great spots, of course, tested and approved by yours truly: Verdens Cafe Mandela on 9, Onkel Dannys Plads – great burgers, and everything is eco friendly! Patepate on Slagterboderne 1 – good Mediterranean food and yummy cocktails! There’s also an nice art gallery here, the V1 Gallery on Flæsketorvet 69 – all types of contemporary art!
