The Standard Copenhagen


Claus Meyer from Noma and Meyers Madhus and jazz musician Niels Lan Doky have joined forces to open a combined restaurant and jazz club in Copenhagen. Here you can enjoy Nordic as well as Indian food while listening to soothing jazz tones.

The New Nordic kitchen has gained appeal around the world and today the kitchen is highly praised internationally. The New Nordic kitchen is characterized by its uniquely Nordic identity among the world’s greatest cuisines and by its commitment to organic sustainability and local products.

The former Custom House in Havnegade, Copenhagen, will house no less than three restaurant, two bars and a jazz club. Combined they make The Standard Copenhagen.

The restaurants
Two of the restaurants, Almanak and Studio, serve food from the Nordic kitchen. Almanak offers traditional Danish open-faced sandwiches, and in the evening the restaurant will serve ”food that your grandmother would have made if she had known what we know today”.

Studio is inspired by Danish as well as international landscapes and creates dishes that represent our nature. Here you can expect to taste something that you have not tasted before. Furthermore, the food will be prepared in an open kitchen.

Verandah restaurant

The third restaurant, Verandah, serves food from the contemporary, pan-Indian cuisine using seasonal and regional ingredients. An Indian gourmet restaurant has been missing in Copenhagen for a long time. The owner of Verandah in Copenhagen is also the owner of a Michelin star Indian restaurant in London.

The music is going to have a Danish/Nordic foundation, where the music is created specifically for The Standard.

Moreover, the aim of the jazz club is for Copenhagen to regain its historic position as jazz metropolis.
