Copenhagen’s Den Anden Side, the new club from the team behind Ved Siden Af, opens this week
The venue will take over the space formerly used by legendary concert hall Daddy’s Dancehall.
A new club is opening in Copenhagen this week from the team behind the recently shuttered Ved Siden Af.
Opening Friday, November 4th, Den Anden Side will inherit a space in the basement of Palads Teatret, an art-deco cinema located on Axeltorv. It boasts a four-point Funktion-One sound system, large square dance floor, lounge space and underground garden.
Translating to “the other side,” Den Anden Side is taking over the space formerly belonging to Daddy’s Dancehall, a historic concert hall that hosted the likes of Iggy Pop, Patti Smith and The Sex Pistols before closing in the ’90s.
Continuing with Ved Siden Af’s ethos, Den Anden Side has outlined “community, creativity, queerness, hedonism and inclusivity” as its core values, founder Sebastian Ayala Henriksen told Resident Advisor. “After four years in our basement labyrinth of Ved Siden Af, we’ve finally found a place that truly accommodates our aspirations and needs as an internationally recognised and visited nightclub.”
Ved Siden Af closed its doors on Saturday, October 29th, following a final party hosted by Group Therapy. The club announced the closure two weeks earlier, explaining that “we’ve gotten everything we possibly can out of the space, and our vision is ever-growing.”
