“Best Cask Ale Beer Bar In Copenhagen Or Even In Denmark”
Review of Charlie's Bar

Charlie's Bar
Ranked #9 of 175 Nightlife in Copenhagen
Attraction details
Reviewed 12 April 2017

There are very few places to get cask ale in Denmark, and this is the crown jewel of the bunch. Small but cozy, great service and small talk, friendly atmos, and a wide and ever changing selection of cask ales, selected for their harmony and quality by the knowledgeable British owner. The bar also offers carbonated specialty beers on tap from around the world, as well as some select ciders.

Located in the center of town, it is most conveniently placed for the weary walker, and a true oasis for its many regulars (who, mysteriously, all seem to be academics of all sorts). No annoying music, no annoying TV screen, just a bar, comfy seating and a couple of restrooms. Clean, top ales, non-smoking (that's what the street is for), quiet if you want it, but also open for friendly chatter, this is my favourite place for a beer in the world!

I am a local business school teacher from Copenhagen, and have no ties to Charlie's Bar, other than I love it!

To my knowledge Charlie,s was the first bar in Denmark to offer traditional Real Ale. I have been here tons of times but last night I had the pleasure of taking some of my overseas Family for a nitecap.

We were Lucky as they had to change a Keg while we were there, thats a full show with cranes in the ceiling remote controls and all - very industrial and very cool to experience.

Whats on the tap you never known cause alot of the brews are only one keg and when thats done you have to go with another, but thats the cool way for a freehouse the way it should be actually.

They also offer a taste sample so yo wont get something in your class you will not like.

Was advised by a friend that Charlie's bar is well worth a visit, and he was right. A good selection of English ales, well kept and in good condition; complimented by a selection of Danish and European beers.
The staff are well trained, polite and know their beers.
If you like ale, strongly suggest a visit.

English pub atmosphere with great real ales. A real gem. Only draw back is it's so small! Won't put us off coming again next time we are here.
