With a prime location next to Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen Central Station, City Hall Square and the internationally renowned Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek museum, guests can easily enjoy the comfort of being within walking distance to all the delights that the capital has to offer. But thet are also welcome to stay in and discover the Scandinavian architecture in this historic building from 1903. We just had our ambassador, Andreia from Lisbon enjoy Nobis’ world-famed hospitality, attentive service and prime design.

Wondering what’s the cherry on top? Hotel RUM’s Skybar, TOPRUM offers a scenic view over the city while serving you the best of the flavours in terms of cocktail- and dinner choices.

Alchemy Bar

Alchemy Bar

Craving a trip to a sunnier part of the World? What about Valletta? Valletta is the tiny capital of the Mediterranean island nation of Malta. It’s best known for its beaches, museums, palaces and grand churches, yet in recent years many great coffee shops and bars popped up on the baroque landmarks of the city. Alchemy Bar is one of them. It's located on the Strait Street, which is the most famous street in Malta. Known as Strada Stretta in Maltese, the street used to be the very centre of nightlife amongst American and British military and Maltese frequenters between the 19th and mid-20th century. Today, the street is filled with the coolest new initiatives such as Alchemy Bar. The bar is said to invite you for a unique mixology experience, never seen before in Malta. At Alchemy Bar one can experience the mystical blend of high-end cocktail creations, tasty bites, dedicated quality service and outstanding design in the historic but totally revamped part of Strait Street, formerly known – also by the Mediterranean sailors -, as “the Gut”. Cocktails are presented by the talented and passionate bartenders. Besides an exclusive bar area, Alchemy Bar also provides a special, fully separated, private room, dedicated to those who prefer privacy while enjoying some of the most amazing flavour combinations.  Since Alchemy Bar features an exclusive and cozy ambience designed by a renowned, international, award winning designer, the interior and identity is not any less striking. Miklós Kiss created a visual identity build it upon the history of alchemy. The inverse ‘A’ letter in the logotype is a reference to the inverse triangle what means water and liquids, the letter ‘L’ is an inverse number seven, which has a secret meaning: this is the seventh unit on Strait Street. So the logotype for instace is a playful code.

The best bars in Granada

On the occasion of our BAR category launch, our ambassadors have gathered their cities’ hotspots in terms of BARS too. You may finally have a fancy night and dive into vibrant bars or try the cities' best wineries, artisan beer places depending on your mood based on the Local's Lore guides. Our ambassadors handpicked you the finest bars and the most authentic pubs so you get to sip a lavish cocktail in stylish surroundings or take a locally brewed beer on a sunny terrace, as you please. But let's first focus on one of our favourite cities; Granada. Granada is a city in southern Spain’s Andalusia region, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. It's known for grand examples of medieval architecture dating to the Moorish occupation, especially the Alhambra. This sprawling hilltop fortress complex encompasses royal palaces, serene patios, and reflecting pools from the Nasrid dynasty, as well as the fountains and orchards of the Generalife gardens. Our local ambassador, Ismael, will make sure that you’ll not only find the view astonishing, but will take to to the best hidden bars where locals gather to socialize after a long day at work. Paripe and Sarao both belong in the same building and they are famous for their tropical atmosphere, live music with local musicians, and amazing cocktails. San Matias 30 is best known for its gin and beer selection both among locals and travelers, while Rosario Varela is a place to visit for a real Spanish treat; tapas. By the way, don't miss the bar called, Check-in, which looks like old train wagons either!
