Welcome to Cafe Blagards Apotek (Cafe Blagards Pharmacy) located at Central Nørrebro. Locally referred to as ”Kroteket” (”The Barmacy”), the bar offers a collection of many different beers, both traditional and unique, and of Danish as well as foreign origin. If beer is not your preference we do of course also offer a nice glass of wine, a scintillating whisky or delicious rum. This broad and particular selection of beverages is complemented by the rustique atmosphere of the bar room, an atmosphere unlike most others found in Copenhagen. At the old pharmacy counter, now repurposed as bar, the talk goes lively on subjects ranging from current affairs to the simple tasks of everyday life. Cafe Blagards Apotek offers a charm and quaintness cultivated through its long existence – in fact, the building was constructed as long ago as 1900 predating the well-known square itself. At ”Kroteket” we also offer a smorgasbord of live music events: Mondays we have a tried and true jazz jam from 20:00 to 23:00, on Wednesdays we welcome the long running Singer-Songwriters Playground from 20:00 to 23:30, and Friday and Saturday presents superb live acts primarily in the genres of Blues, Folk, and Rock, from 21:00 to midnight. Friday and Saturday there is a cover charge of DKK 20,-. One Saturday night every month a DJ takes charge of the music, and the last Sunday of every month we have the Sunday Matine – relaxing live music in the afternoon to keep the Sunday blues at bay. Each month the exhibition on the bar room walls changes to a new artist and “Kroteket” regularly arranges public debates on current social and political issues. The cafe is run as a non-profit and owned by a foundation that ensures that the profits are channelled back into the local society. In other words, here you can satisfy your soul’s desires, be it the casual chat of the coffee salon or the music and nightlife of the weekend. (We have it, and you are very welcome.)
