Fiskerizakajaen is a small venue on Smedetoften 25 where chefs, apprentices and foodies can try out new ideas or concepts. The venue will only host pop up restaurants. The idea and concept is determined 100% by the chef.

Fiskerizakajaen is a vibrant place where the menu and the concept changes every day. The place is able to rent for as little as one day or for longer periods. The rent is low and only covers  cleaning and use of electricity. If you are a chefs apprentice the rent is free if you clean yourself.

What to do?
Icon - Arrow down

You have to do whatever you want. There is no dogma, it should not be fish. The chefs themselves are responsible for the tickets being sold, Fiskerikajen is only responsible for managing ticket sales via This means that Fiskerikajen does not guarantee advertising or the like for events, and does not cover unsold tickets.

There are a lot of different plates, dishes and bowls, glasses and tableware, etc. Everything is tallied up and will be counted up after each event and the chefs are liable for missing or broken items at the guide retail price.

In the kitchen there is a 5 pin oven, 4 induction flares, a small rooner, cutting boards, bowls, beaters, mixer, blender, hand blender, deep fryer, refrigerate and freezer etc. There are no cloth tablecloths, you have to bring them yourself, but there will be tea towels and dishcloths to a limited extent.

How many seats are there and how are they sold?
Icon - Arrow down

The restaurant can be decorated in several ways:

8*2=16 pitches

9*2 =18 pitches (ideal)

10*2=20 seats (packed)

We recommend selling the seats in pairs so that all seats are used.

How many days can I borrow it?
Icon - Arrow down

You have to borrow it from one day and up to 10 days. You cannot borrow it for private events or for backing private companies. All events must, as a rule, be available for public sale via Fiskerikajen's webshop. You can of course reserve seats/tickets for friends, but tickets must normally be available for public sale.

If you “only” have events Thursday-Saturday, you should expect that there may be other events on Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday.

How should it be handed over?
Icon - Arrow down

Everything should be handed over clean and tidy. All waste must be removed. Refrigerators etc. must be emptied and cleaned. After each event there will be a cleaning. The cost of cleaning is deducted from ticket sales. So the nicer you hand over the place, the cheaper the cleaning will be. The price for cleaning is 250 kr. /hour + VAT
