Fancy Helmets at Avenue Hotel

Friday, October 22nd, 2010

Fancy Helmets is a Danish company which specializes in high quality accessories at reasonable prices.
You find their snappy bike helmets at markets all over the country … and at Avenue Hotel.

With Fancy Helmets you protect your head and your hair-do, while supporting the charities the company backs.

Fancy Helmets Saves your Hair-do
“All the women I met said: “Oh, what a fancy helmet”,” says Vivian Negendahl, owner and founder of the company Fancy Helmets.
As a former hair-dresser Vivian Negendahl is very concious of her hair-do, and it was not till she started importing her own – small and fashionable – helmets that she started using a bike helmet.
She adds: “With all the positive comments it seemed pretty obvious that there would be a demand for the helmets – and what to call my new company.”

Fancy Helmets Supports the Local Communities
Fancy Helmets is able to offer smart products of high quality at reasonable prices as they import their goods directly from the manufacturers. Many of their products are manufactured in Asia, and Vivian Negendahl believes in giving back to the local communities. Among the charities Fancy Helmets supports is a shelter project for sexually abused girls and boys in Vietnam, where several of the company’s products come from.

Insider Tips to Inexpensive Quality Restaurants

Friday, October 15th, 2010

Claes Bech-Poulsen is one of the most sought-after food and restaurant photographers in Denmark. When he is in Copenhagen he often stays at Avenue Hotel, and below he shares some of his insider knowledge about inexpensive quality restaurants in the Danish capital.

Photographer Claes Bech-Poulsen recommends four of his favourite inexpensive quality restaurants in Copenhagen.

High-quality Food in a Relaxed Ambience
Claes Bech-Poulsen usually photographs gourmet food from some of the most exclusive restaurants in Denmark. However he realises that once in a while you just want to let your hair down – or go easy on your wallet – and recommends four of his favourite restaurants, when he is in the mood for high-quality food in a relaxed ambience.

Wine Bar with Great Home-made Food
Enomania is really a wine bar in the quiet part of Vesterbro,” says Claes Bech-Poulsen.
“They focus on wines from Burgundy and Piedmont with an emphasis on rare, exquisite bottles. Should you get hungry, while you enjoy your wine, Enomania serves great, reasonably priced home-made Italian food.”

Excellent Danish Smørrebrød
Restaurant Skt. Annæ serves some of the best smørrebrød (open sandwiches) in Copenhagen,” says Claes Bech-Poulsen.
“Their food is very classical, they don’t try to be innovative at all but the quality is superb.”

Best Chinese Food in Town
Yan’s Wok is a small Chinese restaurant close to Det Ny Teater, and to my mind they serve some of the best Chinese food in town. It’s a low-key place but the food is great.”

Italian Food made by a Dane
“Suprisingly enough some of the best Italian food in Copenhagen is made by Dane David Oliver Fischer,” says Claes Bech-Poulsen.
“David trained at the only restaurant in Rome with three stars in the Michelin Guide, and it shows when he serves up the pasta at his funky trattoria-style restaurant Fischer.”

Find More Information
Visit their websites to find more information about Enomania, Restaurant Skt. Annæ, Yan’s Wok or Fischer.

Avenue Hotel is Personal and Welcoming
“I’m a regular guest at Avenue Hotel,” says Claes Bech-Poulsen, and I really enjoy the personal touch and welcoming atmosphere created by General Manager Mai Kappenberger.”
“The hotel is decorated by my friend Mikael Mammen, who has created a great environment with high-quality design from among others DAY Home and the Italian fashion house Missoni.”
Claes Bech-Poulsen adds with a smile: “And of course it is a very special feeling that almost no matter which room I stay in I get the pleasure of seeing my own pictures on the walls.”

Claes Bech-Poulsen is well-known for creating atmospheric photographs which tell intriguing stories. Visit to see more of his pictures or check out his work in the gallery at Avenue

The Night of Culture in Copenhagen

Monday, October 11th, 2010

The Night of Culture in Copenhagen and Frederiksberg promises more than 500 cultural events in one night.

On 15 October more than 200 museums, galleries, political institutions and other venues all over Copenhagen and Frederiksberg will open their doors to expose the hidden sides of the city’s cultural landscape.

Versatile Copenhagen Culture
“The whole city is an integral part of The Night of Culture,” says project manager Marie Myschetzky from Kulturnatten.
She adds: “The range of cultural institutions – some of which are only open to the public on this particular night – mirrors how versatile Copenhagen culture is.”

Classic & Popular or New & Different
You may join the classical (read: Most popular) events such as going through Rosenberg Castle with a flash light and pancakes at the City Hall.
Or you may go for the new, different workshops like making your own police badge or enjoy street parcour.

A Night at the Zoo or Ecological Inspiration
Our local ‘hood Frederiksberg hosts some of the most interesting events such as Nature Night at Copenhagen Zoo, where you see the animals at night and watch the carnivores being fed. Great for kids with a strong stomach.
Or The Ecological Inspiration House in Allégade, which represents a number of ecological initiatives like solar cells, recycling of building materials and compost toilets. Probably more for adults, and a strong stomach may still be needed …

Night of Culture Pass and More Information
If you buy a Night of Culture Pass for 85 kroner (approximately 12 €) you get free admission as well as free access to public transportation from 5 pm to 5 am.
