Housed in an old transformer station in the heart of Copenhagen, the Socialist is a design hotel with the most striking of visual expressions. From the outside, its bronze industrial façade appears closed and anonymous. But within lies an interior of exquisite materiality, and a place of vibrant social interaction - where the city’s creative community, in-the-know locals and ever-curious visitors come to work, play and stay.

With 31 rooms and suites, multiple dining concepts and a non-stop calendar of social and cultural events, the Socialist is a destination of endless inspiration and inexhaustible variety. One that pays homage to the distinctive character of Copenhagen, and allows guests to discover the best the city has to offer, first-hand.

Welcome to the Socialist

Behind thick concrete walls, this building once channelled electricity, but today it pulsates with a new kind of energy...

What's on

the Socialist prides itself on being an inclusive space of inspiration, conversation and exhibition, open to everyone. Spectacular one-off chef collaborations; stimulating talks from local tastemakers; new season unveils from emerging Danish designers. Here, guests will encounter a unique blend of carefully curated experiences.  Take a look at what’s on below.

Taste of Ibiza with DJ Buda

Aug 29, 2021

We’re transforming Bobo Food Studio into an atmospheric Ibiza chiringuito (beach restaurants). There won’t be sand, only the freshest grilled seafood, classic paella and endless sangria – all backed by Balearic beats from DJ Buda.

Philosophy

Following a fifteen year career, training and working at some of the leading restaurants in Copenhagen and London, Boris Buono opened his own, cult restaurant in Ibiza, Taller de Tapas as part of Ibiza Food Studio, to create an incubator for culinary ideas and a playground for creating new dishes, pushing the limits and expanding our horizon.

Boris is now back home and now heads up the kitchen at Bobo Food Studio. The philosophy here is simple. Drawing on the principles of New Nordic cuisine, we focus on using organic and local produce to create dishes that excite and inspire, whilst remaining warm, familiar and accessible to all.

Much of our food is cooked over open-fire: a primal way of cooking, where burning embers, the subtlety of smoke and delicate finesse are all that’s needed to elevate world-class ingredients. Our menus constantly change, highlighting the very best of what’s being grown, farmed and produced by local friends and suppliers.

Drinking

Copenhagen has more than enough speakeasies. At the Socialist, you’ll discover not so much a bar as an experimental cocktail lab. Mixology at the cutting-edge. Where an obsessive knowledge of modern spirits creates innovative cocktails and first-of-their-kind flavours.

Playing it safe? Drop by for an organic coffee on our terrace in the day. Or stay for late-night libations: browse our collection of natural wines, and a spirits library to excite the well-read.

Eating

Whether you’re looking for oysters at the bar, a leisurely weekend lunch or a hyper-seasonal tasting menu – we’ve got you covered.  

At Bobo Food Studio, guests will encounter a daringly diverse approach to dining - with three separate concepts, all under one roof. On the ground floor you’ll find our à la carte menu; in the cellar below, small plates to accompany our stellar wine list; and on the first floor, a boundary-pushing, multi-course tasting menu.
