Copenhagen Airport has named 10 of the 25 new shops, cafes and restaurants to be featured at Terminal 2 ahead of its opening in June. Among the new offerings include The Bird – Kissmeyer, Tapa del Toro and Cocks & Cows, in addition to international favorites Espresso House and Pret A Manger.
The expansion of the new area in Terminal 2 adds 4,000m² (43,055ft²) to Copenhagen Airport. The composition of the new eating and drinking units represents a handpicked mix of Danish and international brands.
Danish microbrewery Mikkeller is among the new restaurant names that will open later this year. Mikkel Borg Bjergsø, founder of Mikkeller, said, “In Mikkeller we travel a lot ourselves and there is no doubt that Copenhagen Airport is one of the best airports in the world when it comes to quality – in shopping as well as gastronomy.
“From our perspective, there are not enough opportunities to have extraordinary beer experiences and naturally we would like to contribute to this. Many of our customers are beer tourists that travel to Copenhagen to visit our bars and restaurants, so it will be a pleasure to be able to say ‘hello’ and ‘goodbye’ to them in the airport as well.”
Vietnamese restaurant LêLê is also set to welcome customers from June. CEO Lâm Lê commented, “We are proud to become a part of the new area in Copenhagen Airport and we look forward to being a part of developing the already-exciting food profile of the airport.
“LêLê Street Kitchen is locally rooted in Copenhagen. Still, with our concept and assortment stemming from the Vietnamese street kitchen, we have always had a global outlook. With our light, fresh and tasty meals we believe that we will be able to meet the needs of the many travellers.”
During the coming months, the airport will reveal the remaining 15 brands that will open in the new area. The offerings announced so far are: LêLê, Mikkeller, Steffs Place, Gorm’s, Retreat, Espresso House, The Bird – Kissmeyer, Cocks & Cows, Tapa del Toro and Pret A Manger.
