Restaurant and café for rent
For many, Carlsberg is synonymous with a cold lager in the iconic dark green bottle. But the name and area are also associated with architecture, art, culture and pioneering inventions in science and beer production. The historic brewery site in the middle of Copenhagen features some of the most magnificent architecture, such as the Elefantporten ("Elephant Gate"), Kridttårnet ("The Chalk Tower") and Den Snoede Skorsten ("The Winding Chimney"), and it was also at Carlsberg that the method for the propagation of yeast was discovered, just as the pH scale was invented at the brewery's own laboratory.
The new city district is being built with respect for these very elements, and the different parts of the Carlsberg City District are based on four basic values: respect for production, interest in science, passion for art and openness to new cultures.
FROM COLD LAGERS TO CURATED CHEFSIn the Carlsberg City District, the right composition of operators will be cultivated in step with the development of the district and help to define the vibrant urban and commercial environment. We select the new actors for the restaurant and café premises based on their visions, and in keeping with the history of the old brewery site, good craftsmanship must take centre stage.
The restaurants and cafés that have opened their doors in Copenhagen's new city district have been critically acclaimed by both Danish and international media and have quickly become well integrated into the local community.

From the perfect cup of coffee in a sunny spot to the Michelin dining experience in a listed building, to the last round of the evening: in the Carlsberg City District you can find all the food and drink experiences you dream of.
