If you’re looking to drink truly excellent beer and have some very good food with it, Tørst is one of your best options in the city. They’ve been pouring a daily-rotating selection of impressive draught beer (as well as a rare bottle list) for years, and they just started serving a full food menu that’s part American, part Danish, and part Mexican. Besides the beer and food, it’s also important to know that above all Tørst is just a really great place to hang. Imagine a Swedish sauna, but replace the naked sweaty people with clothed tipsy people, and turn the lights down low - that’s what you can expect to see at Tørst. And if that doesn’t sound fun to you, just come and see it for yourself.
