So here is something you might not know yet. Every month more than 50 well-dressed women meet up to take over the exclusive bars of Copenhagen. The name is Cocktails & Dreams; a society inviting women who like women to enjoy each other’s company over drinks and cocktails at some of the best bars in the Danish capital.
Cocktails & Dreams is turning 1 year, but prior to it there was another society named “Kvindeligt Cocktail Selskab (KCS)” founded by Britt Gadegaard.
“Britt and her planning group were looking for more women to get involved in planning the monthly events and a small group of us joined”, one of the women behind Cocktails & Dreams, Mette Axelsen, says.
Along the way Britt Gadegaard were on the lookout for new challenges. She decided to close KCS, and a new group of women took over the concept with a new name: Cocktails & Dreams.
With over 230 members Cocktails & Dreams is popular among the ladies who are mainly between 30 – 60 years old. Once a month the society invite their followers to join them for a dressy night out in one of Copenhagen’s high-end cocktail bars.
“From the very beginning the interest was overwhel-ming. When we launch a new event, it doesn’t take more than an hour or so until the event is fully booked and several have to join the waiting list”, Mette states and continues:
“Depending on the bar’s maximum capacity we are around 50 to 100 women every time”.
Cocktails & Dreams have about one monthly event and charge 200 DKK for a membership for the first year and 50 DKK the following years – some of which are used for special events and surprise treats for the members.
