• The Warm and Intimate: Nærvær

    Nærvær is Copenhagen’s new wine bar and restaurant, located on the breathtaking water front framed by the city lights of Krøyers Plads. The restaurant has become a perfect gathering spot for local residents and for the many from outer lands now flocking to see it.

    The restaurant is about presence. The word Nærvær in fact means “Presence”. Isn’t that what we all long for in such busy times—to be present, closer, to be mindful and surrounded by the things that bring us more meaningful experiences?
    The team behind the interior design is no other than Norm Architects—an obvious personal favorite. If you’ve been around here for a while you might already know that.

    Norm gives Nærvær a feeling, a presence and closeness with an array of all natural stone, rich wall colors, wood, tactile upholstery and metal materials. The personal and warming space overlooks the water and has the city lights as its backdrop, making this space that much more of an experience than a mere place of meeting.

    The bar is laid-back and personal, filled with small niches where people can have an intimate chat or freely walk around the place with a glass of wine in hand.

    This thoughtful project is without a doubt one to write home about. The experience starts from their carefully crafted and unique ceramics, made by the one and only Maj-Brit Würtz.—A stunning collection, that is.

    Chef Yves Le Lay is at the helm of the gourmet restaurant. He has developed a personal style and signature with strong roots in the classic French cuisine, but with simplicity and freshness from the Nordic kitchen. Always based on the absolute best ingredients, prepared and processed with high technical precision and playful curiosity for new tastes and textures.

    That all said, I am sure visiting them will satisfy your curiosity. How about paying them a visit next time you are in Copehangen?
