medium sized bar with an impressive bottle list (out of the rarer things due to festival-goers in town) and about a dozen taps, half of which seemed to be more common fare. crowded and a bit too noisy for me, so didn’t stay for long.
Nice little pub with a handful of "house beers" (brewed by Danish brewers). Lots of cask ales, pretty small place, very friendly staff, and they will do half pints of beers. Nice varied selection of Danish beers as well as imports, including a fair amount of stuff from the US.
The Orested Olbar is in a semi-basement just opposite the Oresteds Park, still fairly close to the city centre but away from the hustle and bustle. Going down a few steps from the street corner there is an open entrance area with comfy-looking armchairs and sofas. The main bar, which has bare brick walls, is furnished more simply with wooden tables and chairs. There’s also a room to the left of the entrance hall with table football, a dart board and some excellent paint effects.
I really like this place. It’s cosy, with a nice comfortable neighbourhood feel, and there’s a good selection of beers on tap as well as a long bottle list.

Visited in May and August ’15.
Rectangular shaped bar down a couple of steps from the street level and slightly sunken in this respect. One large room and a small room to the side, in addition to this space there is a bench on street level outside. Random music and EPL football greeted us inside . Tap list is solid enough, mainly Danish micros plus a few US ticks thrown in. A couple of fridges behind the bar stock bottles and cans also. Service was expedient. Overall a worthy stop on a crawl of CPH and you will likely find a few ticks here that you won’t elsewhere.
Great spot. Has a good ’local’ vibe to it. Lots of good beers on tap, and a good bottle range as well. Plenty of people were watching football on TV during my visit. Average prices, friendly service. Very nice outdoor tables,even though there are only a few. I sat outside, as it was a nice day. I really would not mind having this place as my local.
Pretty nice place I had a few rounds with local Ratebeerians. Preference here for Danish micros, mostly Mikkeller and also Grassroots/Fano, Amager. Loads of oddball American micros too like Cigar City and Founders...things you would never expect in Denmark. Glassware was all perfect for style. Very proper pours. Staff was very knowledgeable about beer. A little pricey but then again I was not used to the price level in CPH, which can be quite a shock for an outsider. Definitely worth stopping by for a few rounds.
I like the laid-back vibe of this place. It’s much more cozy than the spartan layout of Mikkeller Viktoriagade etc. It seems more like a local’s bar than a beer geek mecca. Still, there’s a decent set of taps and a rather large bottle list. The taps featured mostly local brews. The bottle list had everything from retired Mikkeller brews to random stuff from the states. The service was kind. Overall, a good stop. Worth a visit.
Great to find a place where it is possible to watch football and drink good beers from tap. At least ten active taps during my two visits in May. Mostly from Danish micros, but also some other very tasty brews. I had a delicious Southern Tier Gemini while watching the match between Manchester City and Tottenham (0-1). Impressive range of bottle beers, too. When I came back on a Sunday there were three or four different Danish football games on the TVs, and I got some decent brews from Beer Here, Grassroots and Mikkeller. Friendly service in a welcoming and cosy atmosphere. Not far from Plan B and great opening hours on Sundays, when many other beer places in Copenhagen are closed (last visited 9th May 2010).
A short walk from the main train station and happens to be one of the earliest places to drink good beer on a Sunday. This is Denmark’s equivalent to a dive bar. They had 12 taps of interesting, mostly Danish beer on offer including some house beers. The bottle list is pretty extensive and includes many Danish, Belgian, US and U.K beers. Prices were decent for this part of the world. Also shows the football if that’s your thing. Well worth a visit when in CPH.
