This review is for the china box counter which you see before entering the bar. IF you are visiting Stroget street for shopping and hungry in need of quick food to fill your stomach, then this is a good option. China box comes in 3 choices, small , medium and Big which are 3 , 4 or 5 dishes placed... More

We ended up here on our first night out in Copenhagen and loved it. There was a real mix of people, karaoke which everybody was having a go at and you could smoke inside. It's pretty small and nothing fancy but great fun and the bar woman (I think her name was Annie) was really lovely and helpful. Would love... More

It is a typical small bar that had a small smoking room attached. They had karaoke set up but nobody really went near it. We were there quite early in the day but we got a bad vibe off of this place. It didn't seem very friendly at all.

FYI: We did not enter the bar, we only had the Chinese Box takeout and ate out outside. We had the vegetarian fried rice, mixed vegetables and curry fried chicken. It costs 35dkk as it's the smallest one and it's enough to fill up one person if you are not too hungry! The food is authentic and the rice is... More

Complete rubbish. They let teenagers in at the door and far too smokey for anyone to enjoy (all of our party were smokers). Do not go here.

We visited this karaoke bar a Monday night when everything else had closed and had a great time. Only three stars because of the terrible smoke in the air. You just had to go out and breathe every now and then.

First of all, this is a bar that (like many other bars in CPH) allows smoking inside, so you're gonna have to wash everything the next day if you're a non-smoker. Your hair, your clothes - even your underwear is going to be stinky and disgusting. Some of the staff are nice while some look like they've never smiled their... More

Having visited karaoke bars the world over, I would have to say that this is one of THE most fun pubs in the world. Some people can properly sing (the bar staff are amazing!), others just go up for the giggles. The atmosphere is so realxed and everyone just has a laugh. Do not expect a fancy place. It certainly...

After a good dinner with great friends and lots of wine, we through it was time to go sinning. What a terrible place Sams bar is. The door man is grumpy, you need to pay a fee for entrance, smoking is allowed, draft beers are flat and the song we ordered to sing never came on. Will never go again

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
