Kester Thomas is a cozy Champagne & Cocktail bar in the heart of Copenhagen. The venue itself is intended as a tribute to a famous bartender – Kester Thomaswho developed his whole career in London. The English capital represents tradition and cradle of hospitality, leading craftsmanship and innovative approach to service and bartending.

Unfortunately, Kester Thomas passed away in 2013, but that legacy and passion for hospitality still remain intact and alive behind every drink served in this venue.

In here, you will find every element that any place should have to be considered, in Danish terms, as “hygge”: Intimate atmosphere, low light, and a charming decoration. You will notice this especially upstairs, where you will have the feeling that the place should not have looked much different back in the 19th century. Piles of books, old paintings, candles and the crackling of the fireplace will offer you the perfect environment to enjoy a beverage in good company.

To accompany your cozy experience, soul & jazz music tunes are carefully selected to create the perfect ambiance and atmosphere. We’re also hosting monthly live jazz music events and art & cocktails events in order to give you a unique experience of the Copenhagen bar scene!

Our “Champagne & Cocktails” concept is offering a large selection of champagne by the glass or by the bottle, champagne tastings, cheese & champagne pairing! We’re also focusing more on serving champagne cocktails and seasonal cocktails to enjoy with good company. The particularity of our cocktail creations is the focus on grape by mixing fortified wines, champagne or anything distilled from the grape.

At Kester Thomas, it’s all about the grape!


Kester Thomas operates on a walk-in basis, but table reservations are required for larger group during the weekend. Please be aware that we have a minimum spend policy depending on group size.
