Copenhagen is host to a great mass of famous and less famous and quirky and hip cocktail bars, you'll be hard pushed to avoid them. But just in case you're cluelessly wandering the streets looking for one, we'll save you the trouble and list a few here.
Cocktails up there with the city's best, but all costing 95kr or less? Yep, that's Gilt. Awesome photo by @thaisbenjamin, with the 'Islay in Spring' (Islay whisky and bourbon infused with blueberry and surrounding a very large ice cube!)
As far as cocktail bars go, Lidkoeb hits the spot in more places than one. With cosy fireside armchairs to sit back with your (incredible) cocktails when it's cold outside, and a huge bulb lit courtyard tucked away just behind Vesterbrogade for those long lazy summer nights, you can't go wrong. Love this photo of the bar by @zebgoodman.
It's difficult to do this bar justice with a photo (it's quite dark inside) but @jemcph had the fantastic idea of stepping outside! The Barking Dog is cocktails, ales and whiskies galore, and the decor is amusing. Happy weekend!
There's not much food here, but a hell of a lot of drink, handsome bartenders in waistcoats and great atmosphere. Cheers, @karenmariemunk!
Something for the weekend: 1105 (named after their postcode). This place is all about the drinks - with a great menu of classics and some more inventive cocktails. Not cheap, but absolutely worth it - bartenders are insanely good, and cocktails are made to perfection down to the very last detail. @amanreehal here with a couple against a fiery backdrop!
Balderdash is a new bar about town and already claiming the hearts of many a Copenhagener. "A cocktailbar with experimental capability," meaning not only wacky cocktails, but pop up food events and general mischief. It’s fun, full of bacon salt, great people and hella good cocktails.

Anyone for a smoked cherry wine cocktail? Don't mind if we do! @mikropolisbar kicking ass on Vendersgade as per usual. Photo by @rrebekha.
According to some official list or something this is one of Europe’s best cocktail bars. @dreadless was there sampling a “Zeppelin” - smokey scotch whisky, walnuts, saffron, orange, lemon, Danish honey and egg white. Yeah, sounds a bit boring…
Beat those rainy Monday blues with a "Business Thyme" - that's gin, lemon juice, honey, raspberry pureé and thyme shaken together and poured over rocks - or two at Bar25, like @copenhagenbyme.
Absinthe bar in Copenhagen, yep you heard correctly! You’ll find 'La Fée Verte’ (The Green Fairy) on the 1st floor of wine bar, Tire Bouchon. Photo creds to @pernodricarddk, and cheers to the weekend!
Feel like an "Olive Garden", a "Slaughter House Bloody Mary" or a "Slim Shady Shake"? Salon 39 is your first stop for funky (and tasty) cocktails. @n_n_d_d enjoying hers in the sun here!
An “izakaya” (Japanese) is a casual place to go for drinks after work, like @signemanthei is doing here. What’s more, Izakaya Bar is twinned with next door Kung Fu II so you if you fancy after work snacks as well, you’re in the right place! (Psst. Consider booking a table, it's a small and busy place!)
Duck & Cover is up there with some of our favourites, where @cocktailsofcopenhagen recently sampled this beautiful Danish variation on the Martini, made with Nordguld akvavit and distilled with caraway and amber!
Here's @chrisgcalvert with a cosy lil nightcap. It's Atze Peng's take on the Old Fashioned, with chocolate bitters and ahornsirup.
