Mostly belgian beers, the good ones. Staff very welcoming, choice of music is spot on. Didn’t eat but I heard that it is very good. Cool place for locals, but less interesting for a tourist here to taste danish beers (like myself).
Bar, restaurant and yard. Nice dark bar with 16 taps and I guess 70 bottled beers. Restaurant with 3 rooms in the first floor. Food served with beer in the dishes. Yard quiet and nice. Beers a basically Belgian but sometimes a Swedish beer might be served as well. Staff is friendly, quickly and knows their stuff. Lately the selection of beers, both on tap and bottled beers, have deteriorated. The place seems to stick to the old and well known brands. Not a cheap place.
The name “den tatoverede enke” means “the tattooed widow” and, as a tattooed widow might, the bar keeps itself tucked away – not easy to find, it’s in a yellow ochre courtyard off Gothersgade at the Kongens Nytorv end. There’s a small bar downstairs, quite unadorned apart from a periodic table of beer, and there’s a restaurant upstairs which I understand serves very good food with beer pairings. When we were there, just before the Copenhagen Beer Festival, the restaurant was hosting a De Dolle evening – at one point the De Dolle brewer appeared on the stairs with a bow tie even bigger and brighter than usual. There’s a good selection of mainly Belgian beers, including a few on draft.
