September 20th Restaurant Trio opens its doors at Axeltorv Square in a completely new building consisting of five tower-like structures in central Copenhagen.
On the three top floors of Axel Tower’s Tower D, there will be an exclusive banqueting room, a cocktail bar and Trio restaurant on the very top (the 10th floor).
Behind the concept is the team of the two-star Michelin restaurant AOC in Dr. Tværgade, Christian Aarø and Søren Selin.
With a location next to Tivoli Gardens and the Circus Building in central Copenhagen, expectations are sky high for the new restaurant concept.
The banqueting room on the 8th floor will accommodate around 70 people, and both the view and surroundings are exquisite with views of Sweden as well as fine interior. The 8th floor has its own kitchen for those who want a unique private dining experience.

In the bar on the ninth floor you can get both classic cocktail and Nordic-inspired drinks based on among other ingredients, aquavit. A part of the bar will have an open stairway to the 10th floor.
“We want to try something new here. Normally, when you enter a sky-bar anywhere in the world, you get a relatively bad overpriced drink, just because it is a sky-bar. We want to change that,” says Søren Selin.
Trio, on the 10th floor, will be a lively medium-priced restaurant with space for 100 guests.

The five towers of Axel Towers are of different sizes with up to 16 floors. At street level and on the 1st floor, the building is fitted with cafes and shops. The five towers are joined at the top by footbridges, while at street level there is open space between the towers.
“Since it’s unwise to drink on an empty stomack, and alcohol goes well with food, you can in fact eat in our cocktail bar,” explains Selin. “Everything on the menu, as well as nuts and snacks, is served there,” he adds.
