A friend of mine that leaves in Copenhagen brought me to La Fontaine. This is a tiny, cosy and beautiful place if you like jazz. You can check the calendar on the website and then go to listen your favorite jazz artist. I suggest you to go early because it gets packed very early!

It is a very nice place with friendly staff. Only one thing was very annoying, people can still smoke inside. It makes impossible for nonsmokers to stay long.

I'm really sorry because I found this bar really characteristic and cozy, the music was really amazing but I can't really stand the smoke inside. It makes no sense that there's a smokers' room that has no doors or windows outward facing, so the smoke can't go outside but goes only inside the other room. That way all the rooms... More

We visited on a Monday night so there was no music. Perfect spot for catching up with friends and having a few cheaper drinks. Very friendly barman. Opens late. Well worth a visit.

warning: get there early!!! the place was packed with people from all ages. Great vibes and excellent music!!! The decor suits the music. The only thing that could be better was the service; they were pretty slow...but still what a night!

I can not recommend La Fontaine enough! It's been there for many years so has a real lived in raw feel to it. There are entrance fees in a weekend but this is normal for most jazz/blues bars in Copenhagen and is worth the money! It is small so if you want a seat I would get there earlier about... More

This is a very warm place. Dim lights and a very nice atmosphere. The musician were amazing and the 10 p.m. gig started at... 10 p.m.! No more, no less. It is allowed to smoke in the place, but there is an area for that, so there is no smoky environment whatsoever.

The place is good , the ambiance is really nice the people are nice to you. But its one of those places where smoking is allowed inside the bar. So your Jacket and clothes are going to stink once you are in there. If you are a smoking person then its really good place. They have happy hours with buy... More

Fabulous jazz club in The center of Copenhagen. Small, intimate, great acoustics. Just heard amazing Miriam Mandipira during the jazz festival. No food or airconditioning, but beer and lots of atmosphere!

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
