The lingo surrounding nightlife in Copenhagen feel a little confusing, so here are some common terms to familiarize yourself with:
1. Cafés, are the perfect place if you want to get a quick bite to eat and grab a drink. They provide a quieter atmosphere than the bars and clubs, and a majority of cafés close around midnight if you want to call it an early night.
2. Bars are what the locals in Copenhagen call everything with loud music that don’t have a cover charge. They are usually crowded on the weekends, but can be a bit more subdued during the weekdays.
3. Clubs, or discotheques are bars that do a cover charge, as well as a dance floor. Most clubs are open Thursday–Saturday.
4. Morgenværtshus, is a term to remember if you are looking to stay out until the sun rises. It is common for locals to throw parties at home with friends, and then wander out around midnight, as morgenværtshuses are usually open until 5AM.
5. Bodegas, are a staple for locals to find inexpensive drinks and regular crowds.

Whether you’d like to have a quiet night with a colleague and friends, or a night on the town, Copenhagen will be sure to please.
