After a few pints at the numerous pubs down the main shopping road, the China boxes are the best thing for your walk home! No doubt! I've had one every night since I've been in Copenhagen. They are cheap and tasty! Beware the chili though!

The front of the bar sells "China Box": a takeaway Chinese meal in a box. You are able to eat this in Sam's Bar, where I also purchased a soft drink to go with the meal. Annoyingly, the two purchases have to be made at separate places but you can eat the food inside without buying a drink. Chinese food... More

Came here once because of the chinese food that is located right outside. The seller told me I could eat inside... glad I did! Great place to be with friends or alone. Nice place, smoking allowed and great singers and catalog. Just give it a try!

If you don't treat Karaoke seriously then this place is for you. although the locals seem to get priority you'll still get your go. Best with lots of friends and too much drink.

I'm a huge karaoke fan, so was excited to head to Sam's, but wasn't expecting to be treated like a leper. It's always the way in any karaoke bar around the globe, that the regulars get priority over any newcomer - it's just the way it is. However, to follow this guideline to the point where the newcomers are shunned... More

This is a very very touristy place. It might be alright for you if you like that, and are very fond of karaoke, but you will probably only see hammered tourists and expensive drinks. Find a local place instead is my advice.

We visited Sams on a Friday night and it was fantastic! It was non stop karaoke, with a huge choice of songs! The atmosphere was great and we danced the night away! The only downside was that it was clearly a bar full of locals, and a few of the "regular" girl singers hated us being there and tried their... More
