On one of the last Friday nights before Christmas the Copenhagen bar scene can really show its ugly face. Unfortunately this Friday also turned out to be my 25th birthday, and all I really wanted was to be able to have an after dinner drink in somewhat tranquil surrounding. Many bars do not take reservations on such busy days - but L'Étoile does! So B and I made a reservation for 11pm and were seated in the bar, and were quickly served a glass of water and nuts to snack on. This is part of the L'Étoile concept - their prices are certainly in the higher end but they then strive to provide the customer a superior service. The cocktail menu is very classic featuring drinks like Bramble, Margarita and Alexander. After a quick chat with our very professional tender we ended up with a Negroni with Bols Genever for B and a Pencillin for me including a healthy dose of smoky Ardbeg, with which we were both very pleased. Prices are in the 120DKK range, thus in the very expensive end of the spectrum. For this night L'Étoile was a perfect choice for us, and we will be happy to return in the near future. Highly recommended.
