Located in the basement of a building in Griffenfeldsgade, a side street to Nørrebrogade, you will find 1420. You may be a little confused when you first step through the doors. The lights are dim, the floor is rough, and there is a dog running freely around inside the bar. But once you take a moment to look around you will start seeing the charm – the over 300 bottles of beer, 24 taps of lambic and other traditional Belgian beers, and the slightly grumpy bartender and owner whose skittish dog, Leila, you will soon come to love.

1420 is the perfect place to go if you are tired of the ordinary Danish cafés with their Aperol Spritz and their flat G&Ts. 1420 offers a variety of different activities so whether you are into pub quiz, beer tastings, open mic comedy, waffle weekends, or football games you will soon find yourself comfortable and ‘at home’ in this cozy little basement. They even offer events such as pumpkin carving in the fall, or Harry Pupper Day where you can bring your dog to the bar to find out just which house your dog belongs to – Gryffindog, Hufflepup, Ravenpaw, or Snifferin.



We mentioned that 1420 is nothing like the ordinary Danish cafés. Not only are all their events hosted in English, but they also come with a variety of English accents. The atmosphere is truly international. So whether you are an exchange student looking to make some new friends or you are a Dane looking to explore your cultural horizon, 1420 is the place to be. Drop by for a beer, a board game, or a cuddle with Leila. We are sure you will stay longer than you expected.

The bar is close to the 5C bus line and is only a 15 min walk from Nørreport. Take the stroll and enjoy the walk over the lakes and through the busy Nørrebrogade. You earned that beer!
