Two of the busiest and most oft-mentioned watering holes in Hornbæk are particularly active during the summer months. Our preferred choice, and the more historic of the two, is Hornbæk Bodega, A.R. Friisvej 10 (tel. 49-70-28-88), a recommended restaurant. Set within what was originally conceived as the town's movie theater, it attracts socializing young Danes like a magnet every evening as the dinner service begins to wind down. Come here for a drink of beer or schnapps, or for some dance music if your visit happens to fall on a Friday or Saturday night (10pm to around 5am year-round). When there is dance music, a cover charge of DKK50 ($8.50/£5) pays for the first drink. The Bodega's most visible competitor is Café Paradiso, Havnevej 3 (tel. 49-70-04-25). This is a lively and hell-raising English-inspired pub that offers live music every Friday and Saturday night 9pm to 5am, with no cover.
