Falcon Basket is one of Denmark’s foremost basket teams, and we are proud to announce that Avenue Hotel has just closed a sponsorship deal with the ambitious and successful basket club.

Basket is Hip, Urban and Local

“And as a dynamic team spirit is essential for the avenue feeling, it seemed obvious for us to sponsor Falcon Basket,” she smiles.
“Further to this Falcon Basket is in our neighbourhood, fitting like hand in glove with our desire to play an active part in our local community.”

DJ Katrine Ring on Groovy Music and Great Atmosphere

Thursday, October 11th, 2012
“I love to surprise my audience by making them enjoy music they never thought they would like,” says DJ Katrine Ring. She headlines Yellow Lounge, DJ-sessions reinventing classical music, at Avenue Hotel for the seventh season running.

“I love to surprise my audience by making them enjoy music they never thought they would like,” says DJ Katrine Ring. She headlines Yellow Lounge, DJ-sessions reinventing classical music, at Avenue Hotel for the seventh season running.

This autumn DJ Katrine Ring enters her seventh season head-lining the popular Yellow Lounge, reinventing classical music, at Avenue Hotel.
Katrine Ring is famous for challenging and surprising her audience. She has graciously agreed to share her thoughts on what makes for groovy music and an enjoyable atmosphere, and where to experience both in Copenhagen.

Groovy Music may be Challenging
“Bad music is simply bad craftsmanship. It’s plain noisy,” states DJ Katrine Ring.
Katrine Ring is an acclaimed DJ and music journalist, and many consider her the doyenne of Danish DJ’s.
“Good music may be challenging, difficult and demanding, but it always has a groove,” smiles Katrine Ring.
“And a good DJ has good music. She reads her audience, and selects the right music for it. It is less important whether she is a good technician or not,” adds Katrine Ring.

Unbeatable Atmosphere in Copenhagen
“A place has an enjoyable atmosphere if it is run by pleasant and competent people,” says DJ Katrine Ring.
“I find this atmosphere at La Fontaine, an old-school jazz venue in Copenhagen, where they select great, and always surprising, music.”
Katrine Ring has a special fondness for musical experiences in the urban spaces of Copenhagen – such as Superkilen and Tone Festival in the vibrant district, Nørrebro.
“Nørrebro is literally only a stone’s throw from Avenue Hotel,” jokes Katrine Ring, referring to the infamous riots in 1993 in the now mostly gentrified district.
“At Superkilen, a city space thought out by world-famous architect Bjarke Ingels, there are DJs every Friday, and in my favourite street, Jægersborggade, you often find live concerts with jazz, classical or electronic music,” says Katrine Ring.
Katrine Ring also recommends the free town of Christiania for its beautiful nature and innovative architecture, and food market, Torvehallerne, as its excellent mix of specialist food stores and restaurants has made it a new meeting-point in Copenhagen.

Local and International mix at Avenue Hotel
“Anything is possible at Avenue Hotel. I have never heard them say ‘no’ to a request,” says DJ Katrine Ring.
“I love Avenue Hotel because they manage to unite the local with the international. For our classical DJ-sessions, Yellow Lounge, guests from all over the world mix with locals who come by for a drink and to enjoy the atmosphere.”
She adds:”Also they serve great coffee and an amazing breakfast. Avenue Hotel is a secret I love to share.”

DJ Katrine Ring’s Spot, Offer and Treat
DJ Katrine Ring has kindly offered to recommend her favourite spot in Copenhagen, and together with the celebrated DJ we have found a special treat in the lounge bar and a special offer in the Avenue 24/7 Shop for our guests to enjoy.

On Friday 12 October 2012 more than 250 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.

Imagination creates Culture Night

She adds: “The programme has no theme but grows in all directions enabled by the sheer force and imagination of the participants.”

Select Events in Frederiksberg
Some of the potentially most popular events in our local ‘hood, Frederiksberg, are bound to be the pop-poetic concert by Mouritz/Hørslev Duo in collaboration with indie veteran, Nikolaj Nørlund, at atmospheric Møstings Hus, the chance to sneak a peek into the HQ of the Freemasons at Sct. Andreas Ordenen, or joining Mayor Jørgen Glenthøj as he guides an intimate group behind the scenes at Frederiksberg Town Hall.

Tickets and More Information
If you buy a ‘KulturKit’ (Culture Night Pass) for DKK 90 (approximately 12 Euros) you get free admission to all events as well as free access to public transportation from 5 pm to 5 am.
