Copenhagen’s Treasures: Copenhagen’s Hottest New Nightclub – Molly
People have been talking about this club non-stop since the closing of the location’s previous nightclub, Simon’s. So last Friday, I attended the Opening Night party to see if Mollys really was all that it was hyped up to be.
The opening night had everything a great party needs, plenty of balloons, some of Denmark’s top DJ’s, professional dancers, a pumped up crowd and lots of alcohol! This party meant business, and the new owner, Anthon Louis Madsen, held nothing back in his attempt to prove that this is Copenhagen’s hottest new club! Not only is it located by the infamous Nyhavn on Store Strandstræde, but it is also said to be the only nightclub in Copenhagen to have their own hotel rooms, in case guests want to continue the party upstairs… It also has a kiosk to ensure that guests can purchase anything
they might require during a crazy night out. However, despite what the name implies, Madsen claimed in Politiken that the name Molly has nothing to do with the notorious party drug, and that it is in fact named after his first love.
My friends and I were eager to get the party started but despite being on the guest list and arriving relatively early (a little before 23:00), we waited in line for about forty minutes. As soon as we entered the club we noticed a huge difference in the atmosphere in comparison to its predecessor. Better lighting and a fresh paint job goes a long way! For all of you that used to go to Simons, I’m sure you will be happy to hear that they removed the awkwardly small dance-floor on the first floor by the stairs and replaced it with a gigantic bar! But it doesn’t stop there; upon climbing the stairs I noticed there were bars everywhere! So if you are dying for a drink, you won’t have to worry because if one bar is crowded, just take your pick and I’m sure you won’t be waiting long to have that thirst quenched. A stylish and fresh environment that matches a pumped up atmosphere and a party-crazed crowd is not something to take lightly. Mollys was clearly THE place to be last Friday. So yes, I would definitely say this club reached both mine and, I’m sure, the majority of the night’s guests’ expectations.
Go there if…
You like exclusive and relatively up-scale clubs, want to party with an energetic yet “sophisticated” crowd, and like to dance to some fresh house music then this may be your new favorite place. And if your student job pays well enough that you have plenty of cash to spend, you can always reserve one of Mollys many tables, or book a hotel room for the night (the rooms cost a whopping 3000 dkk per night!).
To get some other opinions on the evening I asked fellow CBS students, Jazzy Jonsson De Guzman and Inga Klints, what they thought of the new club and its opening night. Overall Jazzy felt that it was a fun night and would definitely go back but she criticized the club’s layout.There was only one dance area upstairs and this small space is also the connecting point between the downstairs and three different rooms upstairs thus creating quite a bit of a traffic jam. Inga was annoyed that the Facebook event claimed that the people on the guest list would enter free of charge prior to 00:30, however upon entrance the guards told her that “this was no longer happening and that they had changed their minds”. Definitely not cool.
All in all both girls felt that they would come back to Mollys for the “good looking people, the strong drinks, and the great music!”
Some practical information:
