CHART 2019 will be a full sensory experience, full of art and design, visual and musical performances – and, not at least, drinks and food. True to tradition we have invited some of the most prominent and exciting bars and restaurants to serve at the architectural pavilions build for this year’s CHART architecture talent exhibition. Among other things, this year you will have the opportunity to taste everything from the Japanese Izakaya food of Jah Izakaya & Sake Bar to oysters at Rouge Oysters.


Jah Izakaya & Sake Bar is a dining spot created in the tradition of Japanese izakaya dining. Izakaya represents all sides of Japanese dining culture from street food to fine dining which has also translated to Jah, located in central Vesterbro. Jah Izakaya & Sake Bar will serve sake and Japanese food, made with locally sourced Danish produce and will be serving at the ROCK PAPER CNC pavilion.


Gasoline grill, created by Klaus Wittrup, opened in 2016 at a tiny old gas station in central Copenhagen – just a few blocks from Kunsthal Charlottenborg. It soon produced a constant line outside the small booth and was named one of the best burgers in the world by Bloomberg. Gasoline produces their burgers with locally sourced and organic products. For CHART Gasoline Grill will partner with SNUGAS A BUG IN A RUG pavilion to serve a single menu staple, the Green Burger, a seasonally vegetarian offering made from organic ingredients.


Rouge Oysters is Copenhagen’s first oyster bar. The bar serves a selection of oysters and wines without chemistry, canned fish caught sustainably by a family in the Azores, and homemade bread from Kødbyen’s Fiskebar. In the night they party with mezcal, cocktails and good music – strictly vinyl. Rouge just between Vesterbro and Frederiksberg. Rogue Oysters, who will make their home in SALARIA PAVILION, will have three types of salt-water oyster on offer, complimented by natural wines.


Kronenbourg 1664 was first launched in 2006 and is today one of France’s most popular wheat beer. It has its’ own individual taste profile with a round and sweet finish. 1664 Blanc, with its unique taste and blue-bottled appearance, will partner with madras-pavilion SULTAN to serve modern, fruity and refreshing beer.


Thorn Gin is a handcrafted gin, produced in small batches – with a classical Juniper flavour. For CHART the Nordic brand Thorn Gin will partner with CELL PAVILION to create a gin bar serving drinks inspired by Nordic flavours and ingredients.


This year’s main bar is hosted by Tuborg. The bar takes up home in the installation How to build a Blanket Fort, a collaboration between Copenhagen-based architecture studio Spacon & X and London and Copenhagen-based artist duo Oliver Sundqvist and Frederik Nystrup-Larsen. Originally created for Tuborg at Roskilde Festival with reused materials from the Tuborg brewery such as furniture and old banners and kegs, Blanket Fort is transformed at CHART to set the stage for musical performances and the main bar in the Charlottenborg courtyard.
