Came here for the open mic jazz night on a Sunday. Great music and atmosphere and good selection of beers behind the bar. I recommend arriving early as the bar is quite small and the whole place fills up quickly!

Our group of 6 people visited this jazz club on Friday evening. We were delighted with the very friendly service (and happy hour prices) and really good music. Definitely worth of a recommendation!

It is a very nice place with friendly staff. Only one thing was very annoying, people can still smoke inside. It makes impossible for nonsmokers to stay long.

We visited on a Monday night so there was no music. Perfect spot for catching up with friends and having a few cheaper drinks. Very friendly barman. Opens late. Well worth a visit.

warning: get there early!!! the place was packed with people from all ages. Great vibes and excellent music!!! The decor suits the music. The only thing that could be better was the service; they were pretty slow...but still what a night!

I can not recommend La Fontaine enough! It's been there for many years so has a real lived in raw feel to it. There are entrance fees in a weekend but this is normal for most jazz/blues bars in Copenhagen and is worth the money!...More

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
