A classic in historical setting, what might be the best cocktail bar in Copenhagen – welcome to the Library Bar.

In our hotel Copenhagen Plaza you will find a classic Copenhagen institution: The Library bar. A fantastic setting that will remind you of times gone by. Sit down in a comfortable Chesterfield armchair and enjoy the best drinks in Copenhagen. The old noblemen on the oil paintings will have to confine themselves to looking – at you, and the book shelves along the walls, filled with leather-backs and first editions.

In the bar, there is also a big Wall of fame, telling stories of the notorious jetsetters of the past, and their grad and spectacular parties.


Music has always played a central part at the Library Bar, even though it is not considered as a music scene. The greatest love is the love of jazz, and on selected Saturday evenings the bar is filled with tunes from different jazz bands. Small, intimate concerts with a few selected and devoted jazz lovers.

The well-known Danish musician Thomas Blachman and his orchestra Ginman – Blachman – Dahl recorded their album At the Plaza – The Library Bar Concerts here.  This album is the first in Danish music history to be published at the legendary jazz label Verve.

Live music is still a vital part of life in our bar, so keep your eyes open!


Champagne, cognac, whisky and cigars have been the hallmark of the bar since it first opened in the 70s. Before the smoking ban was imposed in 2007, the bar was known as the best cigar lounge in Copenhagen. Today, the cigars are gone, but single malts and champagne are still on the drinks list together with our main focus today – drinks and cocktails.

The tradition continues! 🎄🎄🎅🤩

Yesterday our Christmas Tree were put up upside Down as usual, and decorated by the staff.

The tradition started by Erik Berring who started decorating Plaza in 1971, it is unclear when the Tree tradition started, but we Think it was in 1974, where the Tree was decorated with exactly 1248 Christmas balls and 120 angels 🎄🤩

Who will you invite in to see the Tree?

Today we lost one of the biggest actors ever, nonetheless the very first James Bond.

Today we honor Sean Connery with our House Cocktail - Great Scott.

Lets look back at all the memories and history he created with his work, while enjoying this masculin Talisker cocktail, that of course is “shaken, not stirred”.

Tried our new House Cocktail Fleur-De-Lis.

The cocktail is a deep purple, well balanced between the sweet and the sour, with a complexity and fragance of renaissence.

It is shaken with fresh blueberries, fresh basil, basil syrup, lemon juice, Lillet Blanc and dry gin.

Try it tonight 🍹🥂
