Cherish your Mojo, like Mike Myers in Austin Powers and visit Mojo's blues bar in Copenhagen, with live blues every single night. In the evenings, live bands are on from about 10:30p, but acoustic blues often starts at 9p. On Fridays and Saturdays, an admission fee is charged, but on all other days admission is free. Mojo has a happy hour between 8p and 10p, during which draft beer can be bought for half price. Dancard is accepted.
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.
Loppen has in its fairly short history fought against violence, close-down threats and aversion, but has survived because of the strength of its non profit-making organization. With its location in the free city of Christiania, just next to Pusher Street, these conflicts may come as no surprise. Overcoming all odds, Loppen has fought for the good reputation it has now achieved. The club aims at a minimum of four concerts a week, in which the style is rock as well as alternative and pop. Some famous names on the program in the past have been The Verve, Smashing Pumpkins, Blur and The Cardigans. For bigger international concert names, tickets can often be booked in advance through Billetnet or Sex Beat Records.

A photo of Winston Churchill is on the wall at one end, and photos of cricket, football and rowing at the other. Directly opposite the Tivoli Gardens lies this mini-England that makes you think of a nineteenth-century British pub, with its high ceilings and brass décor. The actual bar counter does date from the nineteenth century, being 180 years old to be exact, and the bartender behind it is almost guaranteed to be English (although not as old).British Empire favorites like Double Diamond, John Bull, New Castle Brown and Caines are sold and The Old English Pub is also the only place in town with Stella draught beer. Many come here to watch football as they promise to show their eager customers everything off Sky TV. If there is not a Premier League match on, then there is live music in the evening.

This lively little bodega is tucked away on Vestergade. Although named Cafe Guldhornene, the place is most definitely a night haunt - a cozy, homey bar and public house.
