Another beautiful restaurant by Space Copenhagen, this time transforming a former industrial oil warehouse in the old Christianshavn quarter for Noma’s Rene Redzepi’s new restaurant, 108. Featuring tall sash windows and high ceilings, the striking interior combines raw concrete, exposed brick walls, dark burnished metals and weathered timber. All of the work done by Space Copenhagen is beautifully designed and executed.

It’s becoming one of the functional rules of the itinerant restaurant-goer’s life that, on arriving in a new town, one should immediately check out the old meat market. Unfortunately I’m not currently planning a trip to Copenhagen but if I was, I would definitely be dining in this restaurant, Kul.
The Copenhagen market is called Kødbyen (it translates, pleasingly, as Meatsville) and is a small architectural jewel. Though it’s become a hip “quarter” for bars, restaurants and an excellent craft beer scene, the governing authority has ensured that nothing can be insensitively modernized and that some of the traditional trades still take place. Tonight, a grazing herd of hipsters will be slinging hogs on to hooks. If you, too, are a fan of seared meat, niche ales and interwar Danish modernism, Meatsville might just be your personal nirvana. With its moody charcoal blue grays and minimalist design this place is simply beautiful!

My favorite neighborhood lately is funky
Georgetown. It has the added distinction
of being the oldest neighborhood in Seattle.
With its own unique identity — one that’s
“industrial bohemian chic”, it’s one of the last
few remaining authentic neighborhoods in
Seattle. I love the grittiness, old rail yards,
bars with live music, coffeehouses, art galleries,
quirky culture, fun hangouts and restaurants
serving a diverse, hipster-leaning set.
Hidden amidst the sprawling warehouses
is an oasis of humanity.
