Cold beers, wooden tables with beer-ring stains, cigarette smells in the wallpaper, neighbor-like conversations, classic Danish tunes in the speakers, and a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere. 

Classic pubs and bodegas offer a different experience than the city’s posh cafés and the vodka-stained discos. 

People of all ages head to the pubs throughout the week, and although the service industry is dealing with corona-related restrictions, there are still quite a few places that remain open.

If you want to check it out and enjoy a cold beer with friends, take a look at our list of pubs that are open:
