Sidebar Closing


The New Year is always an excellent opportunity for reassessment and introspect. It is also the time to bring closure to the past and usher in new opportunities. The time when we evaluate where we are, where we have been, and where we see ourselves in the future.

It is in this spirit that we announce the closure of Sidebar as of January 1st, 2014.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the community of Aarhus, our friends, family and most importantly our employees for their support over the last seven years.  What a great seven years it has been!  When I think back on 2007, I am still overwhelmed with the guest’s positive response to our small, funny plates of ‘food for sharing’ and handcrafted classic cocktails.

We will keep our focus on the future as we begin to explore ‘off-site’ opportunities in catering, event activity and other projects as they arise.

If you have questions concerning existing gift cards and Club Card bonus points and how to redeem them,  please contact me.

Thanks again and the very best to you for 2014.

Kind regards,

Chris Lombardi

Wello Cocktail

Old Tom Gin, spiced honey-apple syrup, bitters and fresh pressed lemon juice. On loan from:
Palmer & Co., Sydney Australia.


Honey Time

Dark Pampero rum, honey, chocolate bitters and orange. Are you getting enough honey time.


No Cosmo for Old Men

Bulliet bourbon and Benedictine with bitters and just a splash of cranberry. Please be advised: There is an age requirement on this cocktail.



Martin is at it again with this potion of Mezcal, agave syrup, fresh oregano, fresh pressed lime juice and a hint of absinthe. Of course you will have to ask him how to pronounce the thing!


Rhubarb Revivor

Chase Rhubarb infused vodka and Chase Blackcurrant Liqueur and a mix of grapefruit and lemon juice.


The Word

Hayman's Gin, green Chartreuse, Luxardo Maraschino liqueur and fresh pressed lime juice. A modern spin on the classic.


Provence Sour

Hayman's gin, fresh thyme with lemon juice. Fresh and sharp with herbal notes... or something like that!

A massive amount of Cognac, green Chartreuse, crème d' cacao, bitters and a garish of anise infused chocolate and watercress.

2013 Danish Champion Winner

The House Bloody Mary

Our house recipe is carefully guarded secret here in town. There are no more than 275,000 people that have access to this drink.


Blood & Sand

Johnny Walker Scotch, Danish Cherry Heering, vermouth and a splash of orange juice. And we all know what happened the last time the Danes went to Scotland.


Brandy Alexander

Cognac, crème d' cacao and 12% cream. A creamy and smooth throw-back to the fab 50's.
My grandma used to rock these...


Classic Grasshopper

White crème d' cacao, green crème d' menthe with 12% cream. Retro coloring for the fashion conscience.



A 10cl. concoction steeped in mystery, legend and rum. Three rums, homemade falernum, lots of spices and a touch of Absinthe.


Mai Tai

Jamaican dark rum, Mt. Gay rum, Cointreau and orgeat with plenty of fresh pressed lime juice.



The kitchen at Sidebar takes an untraditional approach to eating.

Our dishes take their inspiration from the ordinary and strive to transform into the extraordinary. We hope that this more grounded approach will serve to surprise our guests and delight them with a more whimsical cuisine. From fat succulent shrimp to the lowly corn chip, no food is spared from our irreverent process.

The food is designed to eat. The food can be shared with others or kept to yourself. Eat at your pace, your budget and your style. Eat a little or eat a lot. Eat with a knife and fork, or eat with your hands.

This is your kitchen, your food, your Sidebar.
