Sankt Nikolai Pub Xmas Quiz
Cancelled! Contrary to what was in the newspaper this week, there will be no more quizzes until February, at which point (from 12pm on Friday February 1) the Sankt Nikolai Pub will be renamed the Red Lion as part of a strategy to move away from its reputation as a Danish restaurant and focus on being an English pub. The move will see a drastic fall in beer prices to 35 kroner a pint. As a result, the pub will not be open this Christmas.
Nikolajgade 18, Cph K; Wed 20:00; www.sanktnikolai.dk
