This is the bar I used to go to after work to meet up with friends or during the day for brunch or just to grab a fantastic cup of coffee. The moment you walk in you will be "greeted" by a bear in a bow tie , suit and top hat, a room with doll heads as lights, and best of all an eclectic, modern vibe with fantastic music in the background to make it the perfect place to meet friends or go solo. Great prices, great food (Burgers, chicken wraps) outstanding friendly environment.

Bankerat is located next to many amazing bars, wine bars and restaurants to visit. The location in itself it work going to yet many vacationers are not aware of the location.

I come here every time I am in Copenhagen. Admittedly the place holds some nostalgic value for me, but I think first timers will agree with me that the service is friendly, food is good value for money, atmosphere is cosy and relaxed and the decor is worth bringing a camera for. Some people here have described it as goth, but I can assure you this is not a goth hang-out. Lovely place to waste a wintery Sunday afternoon over a game of backgammon and a beer or three.

This place is great as long as you don't mind being watched over by a stuffed polar bear in a tail-coat and wall decorations that have more than a bit of the Blair Witch Project about them. It may look like a goths dream from the outside but it's full of people with kids, oldies and everyone in between. The staff are very friendly and the food is good although expensive, but it's expensive all over Copenhagen so it's not an issue. Give it a go, you'll have a great experience. We took some great photos there.

A friend who lives in Copenhagen took us to Bankerat, assuring us the prices were reasonable and the food was great. He was right! I don't think he warned us about the decor though, which was off the wall, Goth and surreal. There are stuffed animal sculptures, they're wearing people clothes. There are gargoyle type statues on the window ledges and dolls' heads with lightbulbs in them hanging over the tables in the back room which has a "cracked" mirror wall. It's a bit surreal but very cool, too! (Gents, apparently the facilities are um... unique, so i'm told!).

The staff is friendly, there is an English menu, The menu isn't large but there are some interesting varieties on it. They also do brunch/breakfast from 9:30 a.m. which we had on Sunday morning to rave reviews. The prices are reasonable for Copenhagen standards and the place seems to be popular with locals. We made it there twice, one evening and for one brunch and the only reason we didn't get in the next time we tried is that it was very busy on a Friday evening and the place was full! Definitely recommended!

It's only a couple of blocks from Norreport station towards the Lakes,on the corner of Nansensgade. Go down Vendersgade from the station and turn left for a block.
