Last week on Thursday saw the inauguration of Absalon’s ‘folkehus’ in Vesterbro. The venue wants to connect Copenhageners, both internationals and Danes. Fun activities, communal dinners every night at 18:00 for 50 kroner and breakfast every morning at 7am with fresh buns made by a baker.So if you are alone at home, you know you have a place to eat in company!

But Absalon is not all about food. Founded by the owner of Tiger, the entrepreneur Lennart Lajboschitz, along with his wife Suzanne and their four children, the recently renovated and colourfully decorated (by Tal R) old church will officiate as an open place where people can propose ideas regarding what they want to do, as long as is open for all audiences.

“The main idea is that social relationships are what means something for people, so here is a place trying to facilitate social relationships,” explained Simon, one of the founders. At the moment, there are activities such as yoga classes in English, ping-pong tournaments, chess, board games, bingo, movie screenings and music nights.

Absalon is brand new and is ready to listen to your ideas, so if you have one, email the proposal to sl@absaloncph.dk.
