New culture cafe in Østerbro

A month or so ago I noticed one of the shops on Østerbrogade on the run up to Svanemølle was under refurbishment and the sign said it was to be a culture cafe. An exciting development for a somewhat unexciting area. Salonen (The Salon) opened earlier this month and I made sure I popped in to check it out and I liked what I saw.IMG_4395

The place was bustling with a variety of people enjoying a coffee, reading magazines and just chilling out. Salonen is a  Coffee and Culture House and is the brainchild of Annemette Albrectsen, who also owns a gallery. On the flier in the cafe it says that it is a breathing space for people to enjoy an organic coffee. tea or glass of wine. There is original art of the wall from up and coming artists and book shelves of books to read or buy. There were yummy cakes and also little sweets for pocket money prices and little tummies. The basement is set up for readings and other arrangements. I picked up the events list for the month and there is something for everyone from readings for children and adults to tasting evenings and concerts. IMG_4397 IMG_4399

It’s a lovely little place and definitely worth checking out, I know I say this all the time but I really do believe that these individual kinds of places need to be recognised and used.IMG_4401
