Taking heed of the speakeasy trend spreading across its more Westerly neighbours, The Union is the brainchild of British bartender Paul Muldowney, his second bar in Copenhagen after The Office and attracting a similar crowd of well-groomed thirty-something working in media and the like.

A dark, secretive space hidden behind an unassuming black door, ring the golden bell and wait to be admitted by serving staff in bow ties with soft 50s music tinkling in the background. Drinks are impeccable (prices perhaps slightly less agreeable), the decor reminiscent of a glittering underground prohibition joint straight out of the Big Apple, and, though service can occasionally be slightly testy, not a bad place for an after-dinner drink or nightcap.
