Pricing was quite reasonable for Copenhagen. Note it is above a gay bar with the same name, this may not suit everyone! We had... More

You walk down a stairs to enter this long fun bar. There are private "jail cells" to sit at small tables and enjoy a drink while listening to the steady drum of electronic and popular music.

My friend and I visited here on our trip to Copenhagen as it was right near to our apartment. We ordered a couple of cocktails each and some shots which were only 20 Danish krones (so about £2).

Went to the bar in two separate occasions. Once on my own, and secondly with my reluctant partner. My partner was a bit dubious due to the name of the place but loved it when we got there. Brilliant atmosphere, and no more pricey than elsewhere.

Quirky layout, as the name suggests, just like a prison. Staff are very friendly and drinks very reasonably priced. Went back night after night. Quite hard to find so keep your eyes peeled.

I have been here a few times with my partner. We have always had a great time and it's now one of our favourite places to visit. Incredibly welcoming, a mixed crowd and good fun!
