Kødbyens Fiskebar, incongruously located in Copenhagen’s former meatpacking district, takes a new approach to nautical decor.

The interiors, designed by Space (the firm behind Noma’s dining room), are spare and features recycled elements. “The décor is austere and refreshingly free of piscine kitsch, apart from a column-like tank hosting a solitary jellyfish, but the enormous windows do give the place an aquatic feel when it’s raining outside,” according to the Copenhagen Editors. Go to Kødbyens Fiskebar for location and hours. And to check out photographer Todd Selby’s visit, go to The Selby.
