NEIGHBOURHOOD is an awesome all organic gourmet pizza & cocktail bar and local hang-out, with vinyl tunes filling the air. This is a place where you want to hang out all night and both the pizza and cocktail menu are something special, we can highly recommend the pumpkin chorizo pizza and the Rhubarb rhapsody cocktail!

3. GULDSMEDEN,  BOHEMIAN SUSTAINABLE BOUTIQUE HOTELS

Whether you´re looking to be in the centre of Copenhagen or rather stay in the authentic Vesterbro area close to the trendy Meatpacking district (we would recommend this location!) there are 4 sustainable boutique hotels of the Guldsmeden chain Copenhagen.  The Guldsmeden Hotels are Green Globe certified, which is one of the most exacting certifications available to the hospitality sector. The hotels have a super cosy bohemian feel and also serve delicious organic food & drinks in their hotel bars. A true home away from home!
