Join our competition to win two tickets for the sneak premiere of the movie DIRCH on Saturday 20 August at 10 am at Falkoner Biografen.

The new Danish movie DIRCH is a universal tale of man’s search for the meaning of life. The movie salutes comedy, laughter, hope and the great comedians Dirch Passer (Nicolai Lie Kaas) and his soulmate Kjeld Petersen (Lars Ranthe).

The Kings of Danish Comedy
Dirch Passer and Kjeld Petersen were the undisputed kings of the Danish entertainment world in the late fifties. The two comedians enjoyed an endless supply of liqueur, star-struck women and hard work but in the shadows lurked the demons: stage fright, drinking problems, jealousy and aspiring ambitions about being accepted as serious actors…
You have the chance to win two tickets for the sneak premiere of the movie DIRCH on Saturday 20 August at 10 am at Falkoner Biografen.
The movie will be introduced by the popular Danish singer, Daimi, who starred alongside Dirch Passer in several hit-comedies. 


How to win Tickets for the Sneak Premiere of DIRCH
Tell us your favourite movie or sketch with Dirch Passer on our Facebook-page and enter the draw about two tickets for the sneak premiere.
The deadline for entering is Friday 19 August at 12 Noon. The winner will be informed directly and can pick up the tickets at the reception at Avenue Hotel.
Please note that DIRCH is in Danish without subtitles.

Ypioca Cachaca Cocktail Competition 2010

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

The 11th of May House of Brazil arranged, in collaboration with Bouncing Olive, Denmark’s largest cocktail competition. The major event was hosted at Karrierebar in Copenhagen.

The annual Ypioca Cachaca Cocktail Competition is about making “a new” version of the Brazilian Caipirinha. The requirement for the bartender’s cocktail was using a minimum of 4. cl. Ypioca Cachaça.

Avenue Hotel was represented by three bartenders who had qualified to compete at Karrierebar – Morten Dinitzen, Kasper Thorup and I (Kenneth Christensen). The first round was divided into 9 heats and from there the 4 best cocktails went into the final.                                                      

It was the first time the bartenders from Avenue Hotel competed in a cocktail competition, “so we didn’t know what to expect”. The announcement of the finalists awaked great joy for the Avenue team. Morten and his “Citro Night” cocktail qualified for the final. Unfortunately Mortens shaker broke in the finale, with his cocktail in it, which made it very difficult to finish his cocktail.

The winner of Ypioca Cachaca Cocktail Competition became Bjarke Reventlow with his Río de regaliz. Morten got a 4th place in the competionen out of 33. A place, that I think we at Avenue Hotel can be very proud of! Kasper and I shared an 8th place.

Thank you House of Brazil and Bouncing Olive for a fantastic competition. We look very much forward to compete again next year.
