Absalon is your living room away from home. Your breakfast cafe, your afternoon hangout, your evening bar and the place you eat your dinner with 180 other people - every day at 6 pm. You can swing by anytime for a game of ping pong, and why not invite someone for jenga, thursday bingo, flea markets on sundays or a fresh baked cinnamon roll and coffee? We have yoga and dance classes every day and a whole bunch of other events - so drop by and see what is happening in the house. We believe that social bonds bring life joy and meaning, so come hang out with people you already know or come start new acquaintances.

My husband found this place online and we had no idea what to expect and it all turned out brilliant. We entered the hall just before they’ve started their evening dinner service. We didn’t know the concept and there was a queue longing before the...More
