Check out some new shops or new-to-you restaurants
Just in time for the holiday season, luxury shoe retailer Roccamore has arrived in Aarhus. You may also want to check some of the 2019 winners of Aarhus’s best eateries on your list; this year, Peder Wessel nabbed the prize for the best tavern, while Mefisto was crowned the best overall restaurant in town.
Stay warm by getting your Salsa on
Break out a sweat and pretend you’re on a tropical island at a Christmas-themed salsa dance party hosted by Cubanismo. Live entertainment, guest DJs and bachata, salsa, and reggaeton played all night long are sure to wipe out any trace of winter blues. Tickets are 50DKK, and the party starts 20:00 on December 21.
