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.

Nice beer bar that masquerades as a sports bar (to the horror of at least one bar tender). Tough to give any place in Copenhagen high marks for value since everything is so freakin expensive. But I’d rank this as a must for visitors to Copenhagen.

Very nice place to drink your beer. Great choice of beers, both taps and bottles from special breweries of Europe and USA. Relaxing, good music, nice staff.

13 tap beers with some interesting choices not cheap but very reasonable for Copenhagen. Good choice in bottled beers including. de molen, some American beers, brewdog and mikkeller
This was my first stop on my four beer beer crawl, not a bad place to start with. Its across the street from a nice park and has some good outdoor seating...Nice taps about 10, all local, with a huge beer list. I asked the server for a recommendation and he gave me a great one to start off the first drink of the day on a hot summer’s day. He really knew what he was talking about...The quality of the beer was really nice, huge selection. The beer menu was really good was it was first catergorized by style of beer and country of origin, then at the back just listed all the beers in alphabetical order. I only stayed for one drink here because I was ending my trip out of cash and didn’t want to go the atm machine, as they only accept Danish credit cards.
Good place to go to, worth stopping by but make sure you have CASH if you’re an American.
One of the best places in Copenhagen to drink mainly danish microes on tap like the amazing Mikkellers - and watch football on TV. Very crowdy when FC Copenhagen or the danish national team playes. Otherwise a good spot with top-notch ambience - rock music or a DJ. 13 beers on tap, changes (almost) weekly. Approx. 180 on bottle. One of my favorite hang-outs in Copenhagen. Recommended!
This was a real find this time round in KbH. Fantastic place to drink Mikkeller on top, and a variety of other hop-heavy local gems. Staff were lovely, crowd very chilled (in typical Danish fashion). Highly recommend.

A "basement" bar that was packed with people watching the Man Utd-Liverpool game when I arrived (and a great game it was). The atmosphere is pretty good in my opinion and it’s cozy enough. Good service, very good beer selection (had a barleywine and they didn’t know who made it... shame because it was pretty great). Another place I’d visit more often if I lived here.
