Art Bar – Odense’s first cocktailbar
Denmark’s third largest city have got their first real cocktail bar and it looks like it is here to stay. Art Bar is strategically located in Nørregade between the trainstation and town center, so people can easily get out of town from and find the delicious cocktails. The device is made by the design artist Jimmy Birdy, who is known for his characteristic street art. This in combination with house / lounge music gives a feeling that urban culture is to make the place unique to Odense.
In bartending and cocktail terms, Odense has always been lagging a bit behind the other bartender monopolies, Copenhagen and Aarhus, but with Art bar there is a chance for native of Funen also to get the opportunity to experience the magic behind such cocktails as; Hemming daiquiri, appletini or an original Old Fashion.
Art bar’s manager Casper skov Hansson says to DrinksMeister that of course it will be challenging but also exciting to see how and if, Odense will receive their new cocktailbar, which will try to catch up with, among others Ruby’s and 1105 in Copenhagen. There are more and more people, who have been asking for a place here in Odense that can deliver a cocktail of high quality so we are confident that Art Bar will be a success.
