nimb, Bernstorffsgade 5, 1577 Copenhagen V.

A wonderfully airy hotel bar. It's in the same block as the Tivoli gardens, and ideally placed next to the central station for a arrival or departure drink.

Given encouragement, they make a fine dry martini.

Aamanns - Øster Farimagsgade 10 - 2100 - Copenhagen 0

Smørrebrød seems pretty ubiquitous in Copenhagen, but from limited experience of it, too often it's just an excuse for an open-sandwich. Functional to be sure, but hardly worth celebrating.

Aamanns seems much better: the ingredients radiate quality, and they are mixed with flair and panache. The decor chimes well with the food's understated elegance, which makes for an enjoyable meal.

Don't miss the wonderful aquavits!
