Beautiful and different building in the city center Aug 14, 2015
The Lake Pavilion (Søpavillonen) is a historic building at The Lakes in central Copenhagen. The beautiful building is situated on the north side of Gyldenløvesgade, on the embankment that separates Peblinge Lake and Sankt Jørgens Lake.
The building was completed in 1895 to a Historicist design by Vilhelm Dahlerup and listed in 1984 as building that can't be altered. The Lake Pavilion was built for the Copenhagen Ice Skating Club, whose members had used The Lakes for ice skating during the winter months since the club's foundation in 1870. They first used Sortedam Lake but from 1886 also Peblinge Lake.
In 1965 it was sold to Oscar Davidsen a restaurateur specializing in Smørrebrød. (The Danish sandwiches). The restaurant moved to new premises in Store Kongensgade in 1974. The building was instead purchased by the publicist Palle Fogtdal and for a while served as a meeting place for The Adventurers' Club of Denmark.
Today the building houses a night club which is open Fridays and Saturdays - besides that it is used for different arrangements like salsa, which is being danced there every Thursday.
