Two socks

Throughout Aarhus you’ll find different niche bars that focus on different liquors, experiences and tastes. At the gin bar, Two Socks, you’ll not only find more than 50 different kinds of gin, you’ll find some of the laid back and relaxed atmosphere that makes Aarhus special. It’s a place to combine atmospheric tasting experiences in raw and comfortable surroundings with cosiness and people watching.

The name says it all, the name ‘Two Socks” is a subtle reference to the idea of wearing two different socks; that contrasts are applauded and that all kinds of people are welcomed here in the cosy gin bar.

Alberts

The cocktail bar Alberts, is your place to go for a drink in historic settings. The bar is located next to the Aarhus cathedral in an old monastic dungeon from the 14th century. It’s the oldest bar in the city and is named after Albert Thorup who had a wine pub at this location in 1885. If you’re in for a laugh, Alberts hosts free open mic stand-up comedy in English on Sundays.

Gedulgt

The name Gedulgt translates to secret, hidden or concealed. Located in the back of a backyard in a humble street next to the bus station, you have to know it to find it. But once you arrive, Gedulgt serves experimental and well tasting drinks and food. Behind an 8-meter-long concrete bar, the staff experiments and composes creative drinks served in miniature bathtubs, popcorn boxes, golden pineapples and other Instagram friendly creations. And don’t just take our word for it, the bar won the award as the best bar in town voted by the Aarhus citizens in 2018.
