“Owned by Mikkeller: The story of Mikkeller is the story of two home brewers who in a few years went from hobby brewing in the kitchen to national and international recognition. Adress: victoriagade 8b. Since the summer of 2007, the world famous brewer Mikkel Borg Bjergsø, has run Mikkeller on his own. Mikkel is a gipsy-brewer, who brews at different breweries in Denmark, around Europe and the United States and has his own beer bar Mikkeller Bar in the heart of Vesterbro. At the original Mikkeller Bar you find taps from Mikkeller and the world’s best breweries, cheese, snacks, meats and a specialized bottled selection. Most of the taps are Mikkeller’s own brew.

Women's Store
“Most visitors know about the main shopping street Strøget in the city center, which is definitely worth a visit. But if you wish to avoid the crowds or if the weather is not for a lot of walking outside, then I recommend doing your obligatory holiday shopping in Frederiksberg Mall. The mall has won several design awards and has all the best Nordic Design shops, be it clothing or interior design and their large selection of stores caters to all price levels and needs.”
