Welcome to The Livingroom This is the nick name for The Railroad Pub (JERNBANECAFEEN), as it is so cozy. Here you'll meet guests from all around the world. Everyone is welcome regardless of profession, nationality, sexuality or age. However, we expect good behavior of all guests. We offer a huge, diversified selection of beers and a few snacks. We serve no food, but you are welcome to bring a sandwich or a sausage from the stand across the street. Our relaxed atmosphere is due to our everything train decor, old paintings and the efficient waiters and and first of all our many friendly guests!

Hi Thomas L What a nice description. We love it! Spot on! Only one additional comment on your music description. It is very diversified, from the very best of jazz to happy swing jazz and Danish folk-sing-along, one evening a month in Danish.
