If you are looking for the best places to meet girls in Copenhagen or a dating guide for this city then you will find all the info you need in this post. We have plenty of great clubs, singles bars, and date ideas to help you try and hook up while you are here.
Like many cities in Europe one of the best things you can do is visit when the weather is nice and spend a lot of time out on the streets during the day. Whether alone, trying to pick up single girls in Copenhagen, or with a date that will be your best plan of attack.
These old cities with their historical building have an inherently romantic charm to them. It will be a fun afternoon for you, and if you are on a date hopefully it helps to get her in the mood.
Most guys prefer to try to pick up hot girls at nightclubs or singles bars and there are no lack of options for either. You can find some very good nightlife, just remember that in this part of the world the singles nightlife kicks off really late and doesn’t end until the sun comes up.

After we tell you about the best spots to try and hook up after dark we will cover some good day game options, and also mention a good dating site if you prefer to meet women online. Then we will move on to the dating guide section, there are plenty of romantic restaurants, bars, cafes, and fun activities you can do on a date here.
Many of these places do have a crossover effect as well, the singles bars we list are not only good for picking up girls but also for dates. And many of the day game spots also would make for a solid day date as well.
Nightclubs & Pick Up Bars
Currently some of the best nightclubs and singles bars to pick up Copenhagen girls are:
- Culture Box at Kronprinsessegade 54
- Bakken at Flæsketorvet 19
- Rust at Guldbergsgade 8
- Zefside at Frederiksholms Kanal 4
- Hive at Skindergade 45
- LA Tequila Bar at Gammel Mønt 17
- The Barking Dog at Sankt Hans Gade 19
- Billy Booze at Kattesundet 6
- The Dubliner at Amagertorv 5
- Abegrotten at Tinghuset 44A
- Heidis Bier Bar at Vestergade 18A
- Mikkeller Bar at Viktoriagade 8
Now that you have a list of the best singles nightlife spots lets talk about the dating culture here for a second. One thing you might notice is that you don’t really see guys approaching girls they didn’t go out with very often.
That is considered rude in Denmark, and it isn’t done too much. As a tourist they probably won’t hold it against you, but they also may not be very receptive when you try to pick them up. Like many cities in the world ‘social circle’ game will be the best way to hook up, but that takes time.
That means work your way into a group of friends, get accepted, and then make your move from there. Many guys reading this are probably just traveling through and won’t have the patience for that, but if you can pull it off it can work wonders.
There is no negative stigma about sex like in America, if a Copenhagen girl likes you she usually won’t have any problem hooking up. It is just working your way into her click which can be the problem.
We aren’t saying not to approach women at clubs, you might as well try, just be ready to get blown off frequently. One of the main areas for singles nightlife is in Norrebro by the university you can find some student bar districts, Dupong at Griffenfeldsgade 52 is known for its beer pong and there are plenty of other pick up bars nearby. The Nyhavn is another good bar district.
If you are reading this months in advance before you plan your trip try to align your visit with the Distortion Summer Music Festival. Overall you can have a lot of fun here but social circle game takes time, it would be a lot cooler if the girls here were as quick to hook up as in Oslo.
Meet Copenhagen Girls During The Day
Depending on what time of year you visit you may or may not have a lot of options for day game. If the weather is nice head to touristy areas since the local Copenhagen girls aren’t that big on strangers approaching them.
The Langelinje Pier, Stork Fountain Square, and Nyhavn would be good areas with lots of foot traffic and plenty of cafes nearby. If you are visiting in colder months then head to Stroget where there are many shops.
Some other malls and shopping districts in the city which would be great for meeting single women are:
- Langelinie Outlet
Chat With Girls Online
So far we have told you about plenty of nightclubs, singles bars, and some decent day game options. However we also told you that the local girls aren’t too open to strangers hitting on them in public, it just isn’t in the local custom to do so.
But that certainly doesn’t mean Copenhagen girls don’t want to get laid, far from it actually. They just go out with a group of friends and don’t want them to think they are a slut for hooking up with a stranger.
However if you try to chat with them online their friends won’t know anything about it. This is how they can get a little naughty but save face with the people they care about, and that is why you can find hundreds of women on Adult Friend Finder in this city, and hundreds more around Denmark.
This isn’t your typical dating site where you go to look for your future wife. This is a site geared towards hooking up and casual sex. Some times you just end up with a one night stand, other times you find a girl to Netflix and chill with to get you through a long winter.
If you are trying to hook up with girls in Copenhagen Adult Friend Finder is probably the best resource you are going to find.
Copenhagen Dating Guide
At this point you should feel confident in your abilities to meet singles near you so our Copenhagen dating guide needs to move on to the next step. Show a girl a good time on your date night and you may just be rewarded for it.
If you were looking to wine and dine a sexy lady then head to romantic restaurants or cocktail bars like:
- Era Ora at Overgaden Neden Vandet 33B
- Frederiks Have at Smallegade 41
- Dubrovnik at Studiestræde 32
- Famo’s at Saxogade 3
- Veve Ostebro at Dampfærgevej 7
- Orangeriet at Kronprinsessegade 13
- Aristo at Islands Brygge 4
- Cofoco at Abel Cathrines Gade 7
- Ruby at Nybrogade 10
- Gilt at Rantzausgade 39
Remember that many of the spots listed in the singles nightlife section could also be good for a date, and some of the places listed here could also be good for trying to pick up girls. Lets start with a few cheap dates in Copenhagen like the free concerts that are held at Nemoland in Christiania.
Or you can enjoy street food and live music at Papirøen Street Food Market, and Billy Booze Bar that we listed in the picking up section would also make for a good cheap date. The Comedy Zoo and Improv Comedy clubs will be budget friendly and should keep her entertained.
For something a little classier take her to a show at the Royal Danish Theatrer.
Day Date Ideas
Just like with day game, if the weather is nice you will have plenty of options for a day date. The Rundetaarn (round tower observatory) will let you see miles away in all directions and on a sunny day can be really beautiful.
The Tivoli Gardens at the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek are picturesque, and you can spend time at both places. The Botanisk Have will be great on a nice day, or you can go sightseeing while taking a canal tour. Plus you can visit Dyrehavsbakken which is the worlds oldest amusement park.
For some more culture head to these museums or landmarks:
- National Museum of Denmark
- Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek
- Thorvaldsens Museum
- Louisiana Museum of Modern Art
- The Little Mermaid
- Trinitatis Kirke

Enjoy Dating Copenhagen Girls
You definitely should try to visit this city during the warm summer months if possible, during the Distortion Music Festival would be best. You will have so many more options for dating or hooking up if you do.
During the cold winter months things get quite a bit harder. People aren’t out and about as much and day dates will be a lot more boring. However with nothing better to do those girls from Adult Friend Finder will probably be up to Netflix and chill more often, so it all evens out in the end.
That wraps up our best places to meet girls in Copenhagen plus the dating guide, enjoy your time here.
