Randers Nightlife, Denmark

So you've traversed the artificial forests of the Randers Tropical Zoo, educated yourself about Denmark's colorful heritage at the Museum of Cultural History, and traveled back in time to the medieval ages at the Clausholm Castle. The sun has set on a very productive day of sightseeing, and now you want nothing more than to further indulge your senses under Randers' night sky.

For the traveler who enjoys gastronomic pursuits, Randers is a city that does not disappoint. Although there are numerous traditional and upscale Danish food establishments such as Restaurant Tromborg, Ostergrade 1, and Restaurant First Floor, it is the unique yet trendy restaurants that give the city its character. Don Quijote, for one, is a charming locale situated in Middelgade 9 that serves both Danish and Mexican cuisine, truly a tantalizing marriage of cultures. On weekends, customers have reign over the dance floor as a resident disc jockey streams the latest hits. If you prefer to belt out your favorite ballads, the restaurant also features a karaoke lounge for your pleasure.

Seafood enthusiasts would be more than ecstatic at the Fiskerestaurant Pakhuset, the largest fish restaurant in Randers and in all of Denmark. It is a haven for those seeking the best in marine cuisine. If you prefer a more homey and rustic atmosphere, the Dalbyover Kro is a pleasant village inn located on the outskirts of the city. Patrons can enjoy good old-fashioned and homemade meals, especially the inn's specialty, fried eel. The inn also has a pub replete with darts, pool tables, and bowling lanes.

In the heart of the city lies Cafe Borgen, a bustling hub where most people congregate to kick start late night festivities. Enjoy sumptuous food and drinks as the music sets the ambience for a great night out in the town. Party the night away at Tante Olga, Randers' most happening nightclub, where famous local acts and the hippest disc jockeys regularly play the latest techno and dance music to groove to. The club also functions as a comedy bar.

For the more discerning traveler, the Værket is a state-of-the-art theater and concert hall that serves superb food and drink while you enjoy world-class performances. The lush interiors and inspired architectural designs are sure to heighten and pique the senses. The adjoining Cafe Sven Dalsgaard receives guests who have hearty appetites and parched mouths after concerts and theater acts. The cafe will be open past midnight so you and your friends can plan your next destination while being elegantly wined and dined.

Whether you're a classical orchestra enthusiast, world-class foodie, or energetic party-goer, Randers' vibrant night life is sure to have something that appeals to everyone.
