Great for a concert

It is good sized venue. The best part was, that it wasn't too big. It was easy to get into the front row, although we weren't even near at the beginning of the queue outside.

A great venue. Not to big and not too small! It was perfect with room to dance and fast and efficient staff. Didnt wait long at the bar or jacket stands. Highly recommended if you want a personal experience!

Went to see Bat For Lashes here last night: brilliant performance in an excellent venue. Staff are friendly and welcoming and the place itself provides a great atmosphere and acoustics. Bars were well staffed and prices very reasonable - cheaper than many of the local bars! If there is an artist you like coming here, give it a go!

If you ever come across an act here you are interrested in - just go! This place has the best sound and especially "Little Vega" is my favourite place to listen to music in Copenhagen. The bar is a bit expensive but often the tickets aren't too bad so I guess it all evens out.

Great venue went to see Nothing but thieves in November. The Vega team were great, helpful and friendly. If you are travelling to see a gig recommend looking up Vega to see who's playing.

We were here to see the Swedish band Bo Kaspers Orkester. The place were sold out! The place itself is very nice and in retro style. Nice organised and not so crowded. The only thing that I miss is a really nice cocktail bar. You get your wine and your beer in plastic glasses. Doesn't feel glamorous at all. Otherwise... More

I´ve been here a lot. I have everything from Dimitri From Paris to Bo Kaspers Orkester. Cue is smooth and toilets are close we need it. Security is good and the staff at the bars is quick and polite. Sound technicians are really good and the sound is amazing. Is your favorite band in town and the play at Vega... More

Went to see Steve Mason in the Ideal Bar for an acoustic performance the music was great,the venue was small and intimate. Bar prices reasonable. There was some fixed seating around the side of the performance area. Good visibility for the artist from all areas. Cloakroom for coats etc available. We stayed locally to the venue and went on foot... More

Saw Interpol at the VEGA on their El Pintor Tour in Feb 2015. Nice little venue. Easy access, plenty of space to get a beer and not expensive. Having seen the band in a number of venues, the acoustics of Vega were sharp, similar to what you would expect from a Music Hall. The crowd were just a little more... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Outer Vesterbro
Home to a large shopping center and cinema complex named Fisketorvet (Fish Square), this area includes numerous shops, several restaurant as well a state of the art IMAX theatre. This shopping center is situated at the harbor front, and as Copenhagen is one of the cycling capitals of the world, also sports two of the most interesting bridges in the city: one for cyclists only called Cykelslangen (“Cycle Snake”) which weaves through the modern buildings around Fisketorvet. The other, Bryggebroen, which is both for pedestrians and cyclists, takes you across the harbor to Islands Brygge.
