Aarhus in detail

Drinking & Nightlife

Aarhus has a sizeable student population, which enlivens the city's parks and cobblestone streets (and fills its bars). Plenty of eating options are also primed for a drink, like St Pauls Apothek for great cocktails, and Aarhus Street Food for chilled-out grazing and boozing.

Where to Drink

Good drinking haunts:

  • Åboulevarden The north side is full of chic restaurant-bars, while the south side has big drinking dens open late on Friday and Saturday nights. Nearby Skolegade has intimate boozers and dive bars.
  • Frederiksgade For boisterous English and Irish pubs and schedules of live music, jam sessions, quiz competitions and karaoke.
  • Latin Quarter For quality bistros and wine bars. Mejlgade is a good spot to seek out.
  • Frederiksbjerg Jægergårdsgade and surrounds are home to plenty of bars and cafes.
