Nørrebro, Copenhagen

seen by Jazz Brown, journalist & creative director

Jazz Brown is a rest­less soul who foun­ded her own cre­at­ive concept agency in 2009. Hav­ing left her homet­own of Ham­burg behind to find new chal­lenges in her adop­ted home of Copen­ha­gen, she now works as a freel­ance journ­al­ist and cre­at­ive dir­ect­or for make-up and fash­ion stor­ies for inter­na­tion­al magazines. The decision to make Copen­ha­gen her home was down to the trend­set­ting envir­on­ment, its people’s sense for design and the Dan­ish work-life bal­ance which ensures a high stand­ard for food, leis­ure time, and more. One neigh­bor­hood espe­cially caught Jazz’s atten­tion: Nør­rebro. Nør­rebro is one of the most pop­u­lar dis­tricts in Copen­ha­gen. Known for its mul­ti­cul­tur­al and young inhab­it­ants, it’s home to numer­ous res­taur­ants, cafés and shops, a vari­ety of stores for all budgets from high fash­ion to second-hand stores, from fancy Bur­ger spots to Kebab kiosks. Here, in Nør­rebro, she starts her busy days with a good cup of cof­fee and a dose of inspir­a­tion from all the inter­est­ing people around her.

My city’s Neubau dis­trict is Nør­rebro because it’s vibrant, young and open-minded.”

The best place to people-watch is Queen Louise Bridge, so many people that pass by to get into Nør­rebro or the city center.

Do you have one beau­ti­ful memory that will forever be asso­ci­ated with your neigh­bor­hood? To be hon­est, it is abso­lutely the food that gets me to go to Nør­rebro all the time.

The res­taur­ant Sliders is a bur­ger n’ fries place. But what’s spe­cial about Sliders is the name: Sliders stands for mini­ature bur­gers and that’s what you get here. The idea behind the small bur­gers is that you should be able to eat them with only one hand. What’s also nice is that since they are so small, you can eat a vari­ety of dif­fer­ent bur­gers while you sit down and have a couple of beers with your oth­er free hand. Since I’ve nev­er seen it avail­able any­where else, I like to order a bur­ger made with duck — it’s some­thing spe­cial isn’t it?

A fun fact about Nør­rebro: Nør­rebro even has a yearly kebab cham­pi­on­ship, won twice in a row by Kösem at Nør­rebrogade 186.

When you take a stroll along the main street of Nør­rebro the Nør­rebrogade you cross the Queen Luise Bridge where you cer­tainly should take a stop to embrace the beau­ti­ful view over the Peblinge Lake. The Peplinge Lake is just one of many lakes in Copen­ha­gen but as soon as it gets warm lots of people gath­er around these lakes and enjoy the weath­er. When you keep going and pass the bridge you will reach the Cof­fee Shop Zaggi on Frederiksborggade.

Geo­graph­ic­ally Zaggi is not 100% con­sidered to belong to Nør­rebro, but it needs to be men­tioned because of its out­stand­ing concept, and yes, you can thank me later. They serve high-qual­ity cof­fee for only 15 Kr, which is 2 €! This is cheap for a good cof­fee, but it’s even cheap­er when you real­ize how expens­ive Copen­ha­gen is in general.

How do you spend a Wed­nes­day in Nør­rebro? Since I work on my own, all days are kind of the same and no mat­ter what I have to do I will always start by get­ting break­fast at Grød.

Grød is the Dan­ish word for por­ridge. And at Grød they serve the best por­ridge I ever got to taste. The menu changes through­out the year due to the fact that they serve fresh sea­son­al fruits as top­pings for the warm healthy break­fast mash. The cre­ations on the Grød menu are ver­sat­ile and it’s not com­ing as a sur­prise that by now you can buy the Grød cook­book, which I highly recommend.

Loc­ated inside the very fam­ous Tor­ven­hallerne you will find Ugan­ic. Oth­er than the usu­al juice bars, the concept of Ugan­ic is its sug­ar­cane-based juices. Husi is the own­er of Ugan­ic, and ori­gin­ally from Uganda. He brought his cul­ture-based recipes to Copen­ha­gen and all of his juices are very dif­fer­ent from the pop­u­lar smooth­ies you can buy every­where else. I’m always happy if I get to stop by Ugan­ic. Husi is very funny and friendly and besides his juices, he also sells fruits and veget­ables that are hard to find else­where like Okra or Gra­vi­ola Soursop, among others.

Where do you find inspir­a­tion? Des­pite the Copen­ha­gen tra­di­tion of cyc­ling, I still walk through the city instead of tak­ing a bike. That is how I always meet new people or dis­cov­er new shops and loc­a­tions. Copen­ha­gen is always a little more ahead of everything when it comes to fash­ion and food.

You should know about… The prices. Copen­ha­gen can get very expens­ive if you are not used to Krona.

One of my abso­lute favor­ite things to do is to go to the movies. Since I moved to Copen­ha­gen, I’ve been lucky enough to watch more movies in the ori­gin­al ver­sion. Den­mark is so small that movies don’t get trans­lated into Dan­ish — which is good for me! If you ever want to see a block­buster or an inde­pend­ent film go to Empire Bio. It is one of these small movie theat­ers that has its own spe­cial style yet still is mod­ern and offers, of course, all kinds of candy and popcorn.

The most pho­to­gen­ic place of the city is… Super­ki­len Park, because it looks sur­real when you take a photo from the right angle.

My urb­an oases are the Botan­ic­al garden and Bananna Park.
