The Danes may sometimes look like a serious bunch, but make no mistake: Copenhagen is a city that loves to party. Whether you're a salsa fanatic, techno nut or just love a tour of the dance floor to some good old '80s classics, Copenhagen's dance clubs take music seriously and attract both loyal resident DJs and the cream of the international circuit.
Copenhagen's nightlife scene has become famous throughout Europe, with week-long street parties like May's Distortion attracting partygoers from all over the continent. Those who appreciate electronic dance music can be sure of a club where the music is what's important at spots like the long-established Rust club, Culture Box or the vast warehouse KB3 in the former meat-packing district.
Those who can't stand still when they hear a Latin beat should check out Copenhagen clubs like Club Mambo or Søpavillonen, where it's even possible to take in a salsa class before hitting the dancefloor proper.
The gay scene is famous for its parties, and Club Christopher attracts both gay and straight guests, all out for a good time. Non-exclusive Copenhagen shows the more mature crowd a good time at Nord Natklub, a lounge and club for those aged over 30 only.
Those who prefer more mainstream music will find something to their liking at downtown Penthouse or Østerbro's Park Cafe, while even headbangers get a round in the moshpit at Vesterbro's newly-opened rock club Sin City.
