APOLLO BAR & KANTINE, COPEN­HAGEN

Wallpaper - - Travel - TF Chan

Copen­hagen chef Fred­erik Bille Brahe’s new­est ven­ture, within the Kun­sthal Char­lot­ten­borg gallery, ce­ments his sta­tus as the cur­rent chef du jour. The Apollo bar and can­teen boasts soar­ing ceil­ings and gen­er­ously pro­por­tioned win­dows. Dé­cor, by de­signer Rune Bruun Jo­hansen, is sparse but full of thought­ful touches, such as Børge Mo­gensen’s ‘J39’ chairs – in­her­ited from the art school next door, these come with gen­tle scuffs and paint splat­ters. Mean­while, a row of plas­ter cast stat­ues, raised against a red wall, brings a dash of drama. The can­teen of­fers one lunchtime dish, while the more in­ti­mate bar serves three meals a day, plat­ing tan­ta­lis­ing cre­ations such as beef tartare with pi­ment d’es­pelette and grape­fruit. In the warmer months, the ad­ja­cent court­yard is the per­fect spot to while away time ad­mir­ing the pala­tial ar­chi­tec­ture of the Kun­sthal.
