After some tough years with corona closures and now inflation Camilla Hjulsager Hjort, the owner for 4,5 years, has brought new powers to the kitchen at Salon 39. She recently hired a young chef by the name of Johann Schnedler Karlsson, who is also a close friend of mine, and he is bringing new life to the menu. For many years the drinks have been in focus however with Johann at the helm in the kitchen he is bringing the food up to level. The menu is mainly inspired by French bistro using local and seasonal ingredients. There are some classics such as moules marinières or steak frites that stays on the menu otherwise it changes once a month.
Camilla focuses a lot on the ambiance and the interior. The interior is French bistro inspired and the restaurant is semi split-level, where you can either be cozy in the bar or venture up a few steps to the dining area. This design makes you feel very welcomed and a place you want to spend your entire evening.
Tihomir Vachkov, the Bar Manager, and Johann works closely together to make sure that the seasonal cocktails and the menu matches each other. Like the food the cocktail menu changes with the season however they do have some signature cocktails such as the “Den Danske Tyv”, which means the Danish thief, and are based among other things on Radius Vodka, Red Basil and Pink Peppercorns.
Furthermore, on the opposite corner of the street they also have a vine bar where you can enjoy a glass or a bottle of wine, snacks and smaller dishes can be paired if desired.
So, whether you are looking for drinks, a place to dine or both Salon 39 is the place to go, meet and “hygge” with the locals.

I originally started at Copenhagen Business School however after a year of studying I did not feel like it was the right thing for me. A high school friend of mine, Pierre Houdet, believed that the hospitality industry would suit me perfectly and recommended me that road in life. He later earned his keys however sadly passed away. I started at the Copenhagen Hospitality College and interned at Hilton. After almost 4 years I transferred with Hilton to London to become Duty Manager. After a year I moved to work for Hotel Cafe Royal and was convinced that one day I would become a Hotel Director. But after working closely with Karim Bernichi, the Head Concierge at the Hotel Cafe Royal, and meeting Uffe Sørensen, Head Concierge at Nimb and the President of Les Clefs d’Or in Denmark, I decided to change path and move back home to Copenhagen. I have been working at the Nimb Hotel for over 3 years now and currently holds the position as Assistant Head Concierge. The fact that no two days are alike, all the interesting people you get to meet and assist them in having personalised and memorable experiences is key for me.
Nimb Hotel is a 5-star Luxury and boutique hotel with only 38 rooms. It is located in magical Tivoli Gardens which turns 180 years old this year and was Walt Disney’s inspiration for Disneyland. All rooms except for one face Tivoli Gardens and will either have a big terrace or your own personal fireplace. The rooms and suites are decorated in a contemporary style where simple Nordic design meets antiques from the Far East. Our guests have 4 restaurants and 2 bars to choose from and have a private entrance directly from the hotel to Tivoli Gardens. During the summer we have a roof top pool and bar which on certain days will have live music to entertain our guests. We focus on bespoke luxury and given we only have 38 rooms we get to be very personal with our guests without compromising the service.
