CPH Jazz Festival 2018

In the early days of July, Copenhagen is once again hosting the well-renowned CPH Jazz Festival.

As familiar guests of Sidecar will know and - by the way, also featured in another blogpost on this site - Sidecar is a big supporter of the jazz music and its community. We host a jazz event every Sunday night, and therefore it came natural to become a part of CPH Jazz Festival 2018.

So, we set about making plans and booking artists, and are now very happy to announce that we will be hosting no less than seven concerts throughout the festival. The first concert will take place on sunday the 8th of July and the last will be on sunday the 15th. Among the artist are The Pogo Group, Jordan Jackson Group, Cyril Bernhard, Chris Andersen and Kasper Lang and his friends who will be performing their popular "Disney Jazz". A more detailed description of the events can be found on our facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/sidecar.noerrebro/ , or on the official website of the festival, http://jazz.dk/copenhagen-jazz-festival-2018/forside/ .

Besides the jazz - which alone mandates a visit - we will be whipping up a special CPH Jazz Festival cocktail menu, and MaoBao will of course be making their delicious asian streetfood. All in all, everything should be in place for a fantastic week with great music, fantastic food and drinks together with good friends. 

Some, not all, of the concerts requires a purchase of a not-particular-expensive-because-it's-all-about-the-jazzzzz ticket which can be purchased via billetto using the following link:





Coffee. What a wonderful thing!

It's what wakes us up in the morning. It's what makes us stay up at night, and the thing that keeps us going through the day.

Coffee is actually also the reason Sidecar exist. Rasmus and I being locals and working in an office nearby, often found ourselves wondering the streets during breaks, looking for a good cup of coffee. Not being able to find one, we decided that the neighbourhood needed a place with good coffee, and so, just about a year later Sidecar was a reality.

So coffee was important to us when we first started, and it still is today. We pride ourselves in making every single cup as good as possible, and for that you need a few things. 

First of all you need good quality coffeebeans. At Sidecar we've developed our own special blend in collaboration with Copenhagen Coffee Lab. It consist of coffeebeans from Mexico, Indonesia and Guatemala in VERY secret ratios. The beans are picked in altitudes ranging from 1050 meter to 1600 meters. This makes it a medium to high altitude coffee which is characterized by notes from citrusfruits, nuts, chocolate and vanilla. We feel that this blend provides the best basis for both espressos and french press coffee - but of course taste is individual.

Next you need a staff that is knowledgeable about coffee and familiar with making it. Therefor every member of the Sidecar staff that works on the floor has been to a coffeecourse at our friends at Copenhagen Coffee Lab. Here they are taught about the origins of our blend and how to treat it properly.

All in all it's our ambition to make our coffee as good as possible, but still at a reasonable price. Wether or not it's the best in town we'll let you decide, but we think it is ;)

How better to finish off the week than with smooth jazz, comfy food and great cocktails?

At Sidecar we've made it a tradition to have talented jazz musicians come and play on sunday nights. It's all very informal, and our aim is basically just to make everybody relax and enjoy themselves. As allways, our bartenders and chefs are ready to make great things to accompany the music.

Although we have a few household names that has visited us many times by now, we like to also bring in new and upcoming artists - just to let us all know what's cooking in the jazzy kitchen. In the past we have had guys (and girls) like Kasper Lang, Mikkel Nøhr Band, Christian Woll, Jordan Jackson and Viola Viola come and visit us. We hope to bring a lot of them back in 2018. Also, Sidecar is a regular participant in the well-renowned Copenhagen Jazz Festival that takes place every year in july.

Actually as we are writing this entry, our good friend and regular performer at Sidecar, Christopher Filancia Andersen is away in New York to scouer the streets and murky jazzclubs of the big apple for new talents and potential colabborators. Hopefully we get to invite some of the artists he finds to come over and play for us in 2018. 

If you're interested in visiting us for sunday night jazz, make sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook where we post and update about upcoming events and artists.

We look forward to seeing you.
