The Standard

At The Standard we have one of Copenhagen's most beautiful locations near the Inderhavn bridge and Nyhavn. Our guests can enjoy beautiful views all year round from all the restaurants in the house, and during the summer, the terrace offers refreshing snacks and cool drinks just a stone's throw from the water. The Standard houses four unique concepts

The Nordic Michelin Restaurant STUD!O

The modern Danish bistro Almanak

The colourful and vegetable-loving Mission

The exclusive Private Dining

The 4 concepts make up the house, The Standard, for which we offer a wide range of competencies, which you can read much more about here. The restaurants each have their own style and personality, and as a guest you will therefore always be able to try something new at The Standard.

As we and our restaurants are a large family under the same roof, the entire house can also be used for larger arrangements and events.


A Historic Building

Originally the building, which today constitutes The Standard, was used as a customs house and was called Gammel Toldkammer. It was built in 1937 by the Danish architect and royal building inspector Kristoffer Varming. Due to its elongated shape, it is also called the "penal house".

In 1965, the building went over to Scandlines where they cleared goods at one end and sold tickets for ships and ferries to and from Sweden at the other. There was a myriad of people here at Havnegade when both small ships, larger ferries with space for cars and hydro-ferries were added. The last sailing from Havnegade was in 2002 because after the Øresund Bridge opened in 2000, people preferred driving across the strait.

After a major renovation, the first restaurants in the building opened in 2005. In 2013, Claus Meyer and a group of investors took over the entire building. They then opened Almanac, STUD!O, the Indian restaurant Verandah and a jazz club, after which the latter closed.

At the end of 2017, the current owner group took over Claus's house operation, and after a respectful refurbishment in 2018, The Standard Private Dining was completed in the old Jazz club, and a few months later the doors were opened to Restaurant Mission on the old Verandah premises.

Along with Almanak and STUD!O, the house The Standard in 2019 is once again filled up and full of life.
