The wine bar Ved Stranden 10 doubles as a wine store, serving and selling mostly natural wine. The name, which is also the address, means by the shore/beach, and the place is indeed located along the canals in Copenhagen. This is our favorite wine bar in Copenhagen. With its white-painted wooden walls and vintage Scandinavian furniture, the old house has a unique atmosphere. In the summer you can sit by the piers along the canal with a glass of natural wine in hand. Some favorite producers always on the shelf here include Gut Oggau, Christian Tschida, and Matassa. There’s always some snacks on the bar menu, but if you get really hungry you can walk around the corner to their restaurant Admiralgade 26.

You don’t need wine expertise to visit Ved Stranden 10. Just go there, ask one of the friendly staff for a recommendation, and they will pour you something tasty from a bottle they’ve opened recently. Taste it, tell them if you like it or not, until you are satisfied with the choice. You can drink a glass and move on, or buy a bottle and hang out the whole day. This is Denmark, so you can even bring your glass down to the pier, or purchase a bottle to take home on your way out!
Ved Stranden 10 is the very definition of the Danish word “hygge.” You can hardly find a more cozy and relaxed atmosphere. The wine bar consists of three different rooms. You enter into an old tea store, with wooden drawers and tiny cabinets. The Zalto glasses and wine bottles on the shelves, as well as the array of wine corks everywhere immediately tell you where you are, though. In the next room, you are suddenly in a beach house with white-painted wood panels and glass window walls. Decorated with George Nelson bubble lamps and other vintage furniture with modern elegance. All the way in is a bigger table – a kind of private room for larger groups.
If you’re hungry, there are always some bar snacks available. If you visit on a Monday, they also serve a Monday meal. It’s a hearty, rustic, staff meal style kind of dish made in a big pot to serve as many as possible. At the price of just DKK 100, it sells out quickly, though, so get there early. Ved Stranden 10 also has an amazing wine cellar. Ask for a tour if you’re buying some bottles. Please notice that this is not a late-night place. Ved Stranden 10 opens at 12.00 and closes at 22.00 every Monday to Saturday
