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

Halvandet

Dine fancy, play volleyball, or jump straight in the water at Halvandet

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.

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