I was mad enough to fight the snowstorm in a bid to hunt down Bankeråt Cafè at Ahlefeldtsgade. And every damn effort was worth it! I fell right in love with this little dark room and its creepy ambience. There were taxidermied animals hanging all around, with decapitated doll head light fixtures and funkier window-ledge knick-knacks. The cafè’s casual eccentricity made me feel right at home.
The Danish word ‘bankerøt’ could be simply translated as bankruptcy, and I wonder why! Everything here is very reasonably priced. A DKK36 latte accompanied my stay-in from the blizzard. Dessert choices were very basic though – chocolate tarts, a walnut cake and brunch sandwiches. Young crowds are known to frequent the area; the combination of Bankeråt Cafè’s full bar selection and its mysterious aura is the main draw for Bankeråt.
However short a visit I paid, I’m just really glad to have witnessed the cafè’s much raved-about creepy decor! I’m all for anything out of the ordinary and BANKERÅT ranks way up on my list for being one of a kind.
