gourmet smørrebrød

Get your hands dirty, get your apron on, and start creating your very own gourmet smørrebrød

When visiting Copenhagen you must try the famous Danish smørrebrød. Even better – what about making them yourself in new Nordic surroundings at Refshaleøen?

Restaurant Aamanns’ is famous for its modern interpretation of “smørrebrød” in Copenhagen. Their amazing and industrial venue at Refshaleøen offers a workshop on how to create tasty smørrebrød for groups. You can easily combine this with a conference or corporate gathering at the same location.

When Aamanns isn’t busy hosting workshops, they run a cafeteria where businesses located on Refshaleøen come to eat delicious smørrebrød for lunch. The open space creates an undeniable community spirit between the workplaces. People gather around the long wooden tables to enjoy smørrebrød – just like in the old days. As soon as everyone is gathered at Aamanns for lunch you hear the glasses clinking, the cutlery rattling, and the summing of conversation and laughter fills the room.

The building, which today holds Aamanns, is called “The Main Warehouse”, which was once used as the old B&W shipyard’s depot. With its rustic and raw atmosphere, it is easy to picture the old working environment. The well-preserved space makes this venue particularly special for groups to visit.

If you would like to know more about using Aamanns as a venue for your group or you would like to experiment with a smørrebrøds workshop, please contact Nathalie Lambert at +45 33 45 45 12 or nl@bdp.dk

Blocs & Walls (1)

Celebrate your triumph in 28 meters height – Challenge yourself with Blocs & Walls

Do you want to try something completely out of the ordinary for the day? Blocs & Walls is located on Refshaleøen and is filled with colourful climbing walls. After a day of climbing why not celebrate your triumph in 28 meters height; with a view of Copenhagen’s skyline from the optical tower with a glass of champagne?

The story behind the building, which now holds Blocs & Walls, is very interesting. The hall is called “The Markup Hall” and is connected to “The Optical Tower”. When it was used for B&W’s shipyard, workers would mark steel plates for the ships by the markings that the projector in the tower 28 meters high provided.

It is possible to walk up the many flights of stairs to the top of the tower. From here you get an amazing view of Copenhagen. If you dare to walk all the way to the top of the optical tower, you also have the possibility of seeing the preserved marker used by B&W workers.

You decide if you want to spend the day unwinding on the climbing walls with your group or if you would like to combine it with a corporate meeting or conference on location. Your group will be paired with a number of guides helping you through the day as you attempt to climb the walls. Anyone from beginners to professionals can participate, as the walls offer different heights and difficulty levels.

If you would like to know more about using Blocs & Walls for your group, please contact Nathalie Lambert at +45 33 45 45 12 or nl@bdp.dk

Amass

Amass – an edgy gourmet dining experience

In the building called “The Workshop Store” elderly and disabled were sent to do less heavy and dangerous work in the B&W shipyard days. Now it houses one of Copenhagen’s most unique restaurants – and of course, it is located on the amazing Refshaleøen.

Stepping inside of the restaurant is a unique experience in itself. Their décor style is very modern and not something you will see often. The room is filled with concrete, while it has a very minimalistic Scandinavian touch.

Amass changes its menu very often, as they strive to use perfect ingredients, which are in season at the moment. When you dine at Amass, you are served a menu consisting of a variety of different delicious dishes, which can be accompanied with a wine menu. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner.

If you wish to occupy the entire restaurant it seats approximately 80 guests.

Wait till you see their outdoor kitchen garden, where the chefs collect ingredients for their tasty menus. It is so beautiful! Furthermore, the kitchen garden, which is visible from inside the restaurant has a campfire, which is lid every night for guests to enjoy the live flames.

If you would like to know more about using Amass for your group, please contact Ebbe Kiær at +45 33 45 45 11 or ek@bdp.dk

A unique venue where it is possible to dine fancy, play volleyball, or jump straight in the water – whatever you prefer. Relax and enjoy a cocktail in the cabana as you watch the waves beat across the sea with wonderful Copenhagen as your primary view.

Halvandet entails all the raw and industrial details as the rest of the locations on Refshaleøen. However, Halvandet has accomplished to make their industrial halls and the outdoor area exclusive and elegant at the same time. This is a venue where it is just as appropriate to wear your bikini as it is to wear your most extravagant evening gown.

In the summertime, Halvandet is open for the public where it turns into a beach club with sunbeds, beach chairs, and the possibility of bathing in the ocean. As you enjoy a day at Halvandet music will be playing, the drinks will be cold and the food delicious. You probably won’t even believe you are still in Copenhagen when you see this place. Its atmosphere more resembles somewhere in the south; so combined with its distinctive industrial look – it truly is a place of its own.

The location is called “The Cable Halls” as they were used to produce cables once upon a time for the B&W shipyard. Halvandet consists of one very large hall and one smaller hall, which can be used for events.
