Neighborhood
“Kødbyen - or the meat packing district in English - is a local favourite. Whether it’s for a great meal, a beer on the sun or a full night out, this is where to go. If you’re in the mood for a great and greasy burger, try Tommi’s Burger Joint. If you’re hitting the dance floor, NOHO might be the answer. Whatever your mood, there’s numerous bars and restaurant at your disposal here. ”
