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 Friday and Saturday evening the bar is filled with tunes from our jazz house band. Small, intimate concerts for 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 – see the weekly schedule here:
Wednesday & Thursday 7 pm – 11 pm
Friday 4 pm – 8 pm
Jazz House Band
Friday & Saturday 8.30 pm – 11 pm
HISTORICAL BAR FOR COCKTAILS & DRINKS
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.
RENT THE BAR
