Address: Nybrogade 10
Behind an unmarked door on a dimly lit street in the middle of town, the Danish capital's best bar is busy six nights a week. Two utterly beguiling rooms in an eighteenth-century building have high ceilings and gray wainscoting. It all looks traditionally Scandinavian, but the cocktail menu ranges from the classic to the contemporary. Try a Burnt Fig (caramelized fig syrup with cognac and cream) or a Thai'ed Up Martini (Plymouth gin with Thai basil). All of Scandinavia is in the grip of a cocktail boom right now, but thanks to the charm of the premises and the expertise of the bartenders, Ruby shines the brightest.
