Café Langebro Copenhagen Reviews
Café Langebro Feb 26, 2010
I have been visiting this place some times over the last many years and the place is constantly changing to the better according to my view. From outside it still looks like a bodega but inside it has been shined up and is now bright with a slight maritime feel. Friday afternoon is usually crowded with a nice mix of blue and white collar in a relaxing atmosphere.
The bar has today 24 different beer taps to choose from mainly with well known Danish micro breweries like GB/ ølfabrikken and macro breweries like the pilsner Urquell, Leffe, Hoegaarden and so on. Besides the taps they have also other beer brands on bottle.
The waitresses are sweet, friendly and fast and they are making this a nice place to visit and pleasantly non-pretentious.
Before the year 1900 Islands Brygge where café Langebro is situated was mostly under water, but between the years 1901-1906 the waters between Artillerivej and Langebro got filled up and in the end of that period the first buildings where placed along the dock. One of the houses was Langebrohus, where Café Langebro is situated.
Already in 1904 bought master builder Røhler the site where Langebrohus was built and the house was ready in October 1905; the house had beautiful towers and was therefore and great entry to Islands Brygge (Iceland Dock). The bottom floor in the house was constructed with business in mind and there were a lot of different stores in the house, amongst them men’s clothing, pharmacy and a posthouse.
In October 1917 restaurateur G. Keller opened Café Langebro and it became a place, where food was good and where you could watch cabaret and music. The Café consisted of a café, restaurant and company premises for 18 persons and in the summer there were a beautiful terrace in front of the whole facade. The terrace was cut down in size when the built the current bridge was constructed in 1954.
Café Langebro has always had the same name except for a short period where it was named Little Europe after a local hotel.
