If you’re looking to get intimate with the locals, then Neighbourhood won’t disappoint. Perpetually packed, you will literally be rubbing shoulders with your fellow diners by the shared long tables at this busy little hotspot on Vesterbro, in the heart of Copenhagen’s former red light district.

There’s much to like – the offering of pizza, cocktails and brunch takes aim at what must be the broadest sweet spot possible – as long as you aren’t a traditionalist. No capricciosas. No Old Fashioned. No, this is hardcore hipster territory where the relentless reign of organic and fad-driven reinvention goes unquestioned.

So instead of debating whether these crispy flatbreads – toppings vary from chilli & lemongrass roasted redfish to pumpkin and chorizo – are proper pizzas, just enjoy them for what they are. They’re plenty tasty. Similarly, even if don’t really care for organic, home-infused spirits, the drinks certainly go down easily enough.

What’s not to like, however, is the often long wait for a seat, particularly on weekends. In those cases, do consider your options. Subjectively, nearby Mother makes better (or at least more traditional) pizzas and you’ll find better cocktails at bars like Duck and Cover or 1656. The number of options is the real beauty of Neighbourhood’s hood.
