Everything at KIND OF BLUE is designed for your laidback pleasure
When You’re in a Laidback Mood
“Everything here is designed to be laidback,” says owner Claus Ploug of his bar Kind of Blue. The name is inspired by the classic jazz record Kind of Blue by Miles Davis. It defines the mood of the bar, enhanced by the specially designed colour on the walls, and the music chosen by Claus Ploug.

“It’s My Ego-trip”
Claus Ploug readily admits that Kind of Blue is his ego-trip. He has selected everything according to his own taste and definition of quality:
The music consists of more than 70 compilations he has mixed himself from his favourite CDs, whether it’s jazz, folk or rock it’s always smooth and laidback.
The decor is either designed especially for Kind of Blue or it’s design classics like the eternally popular Eames shell chairs and the fashionable Jieldé Lamps. The furniture is from Relove, his girlfriend’s show room for vintage furniture, conveniently situated at the back of the bar.
He serves plunger coffee because of the better flavour, and because an espresso machine would make too much noise for the guests to enjoy the music …
