Copenhagen’s Meatpacking District


Copenhagen’s Meat Packing District is venue to some killer pig out spots. Formally home to Copenhagen’s meat industry businesses, in recent years it has been transformed into a collection of broad high quality restaurants and trendy night life.

It’s almost impossible to choose where to go first. Easily accessible from Generator, you can go there for breakfast, lunch or dinner (or all 3). Here’s our list of the best places to get your munch on.


If you’re craving authentic American BBQ food and a huge variety of beer, then WarPigs is right up your street. This brewpub is made up of Danish brewery Mikkeller and American brewery 3 Floyds, who set out to create the best brewpub in the world. This has resulted in 22 unique Danish American beers on tap, brewed in house. The chef Andrew Hroza brings with him a past of cooking for Slipknot and Van Halen, not to mention catering at Hell’s Kitchen. He smokes the meat for 12-14 hours in Europe’s biggest smoker until perfectly tender. So if Texas BBQ and beer is what you’re after then you need to check out WarPigs.


Kul is gourmet with a focus on exceptional taste and reasonable prices. The quirky cuisine is southern Californian/Asian/Danish fusion prepared either on the grill or in the Josper grill oven. The servings are the size of starters so you can pick and choose various dishes. Henrik Jyrk is the founder and head chef, he’s no stranger to a Michelin star. Perfect for those in search surf and turf style dining with a bit more style.

Gorilla’s jam packed menu has strong Mediterranean roots and flavours. There’s something for everyone here. From snacks at the bar to a la carte, Gorilla has you covered. With a huge wine list and plenty of cocktails on offer, there’s no wonder it’s always busy. Chef Denny Vangsted is the mastermind behind the deliciousness of the food. His bold and vibrant style of cooking is clear with the coupled ingredients used throughout the menu. If you crave a lot of really good food that doesn’t break the bank then this is the one for you.

Bistro Bosch

Situated in the old Bosch warehouse, Bistro Bosch is the largest organic restaurant in Denmark. In a modern bistro style, they serve tasty good organic food at a reasonable price. This establishment is where the chic young danes come. This is the brain child of Karsten Hoydal who thought it was time Copenhagen had an entirely organic restaurant in every form. From the staff 's fairtrade cotton uniforms to the paint on the walls to the food on your plate. If you are in search of a biodynamic eatery then look no further as Bistro Bosch has you covered.
