A gem among Vesterbro's many nightlife options, Vela is one of the city's few lesbian hangouts. The dimly-lit interiors carry an oriental theme, with beautiful paintings and figurines throughout the space. The bar offers a diverse range of spirits from beers to cocktails and shots. The atmosphere is relaxed and the crowd, hip. Try your hand at foosball if you're bored. The space also hosts numerous cultural events from live music to poetry readings. A fun place for a girls night out. Check website for more.
Café Intime is a treat. Here, in the middle of kitschy souvenirs and a cozy ambiance, they serve reasonably priced drinks. The owner and hostess will most likely sing cabaret tunes that make you think of Weimar Berlin rather than Copenhagen. The majority of the clientele is gay, but everyone is welcome.
