A surprise stop on Melbourne Open House Day was Ikea Denmark House. We were strolling back into the city after visiting the Hellenic Museum and heading to the Myer Mural Hall when we noticed one of the many “look at me” “I’m open” and “In here” signs waving out the front.

Tucked up on the third floor of a very traditional office block it felt like stepping into the middle of Copenhagen. The space is open, airy and bright and was a real surprise to us.

We visited the meeting room and then explored more of the floor and were delighted to discover a very pretty restaurant space, Dansk, inside as well. I have included an urban spoon link below that will take you to some reviews of the restaurant until we can get there to try it ourselves!

The club itself is normally open only to members. Membership from once upon a time required either origin or language as criteria but now is open and we were surprised to find a competition for a years membership – do you think they would deign (ha ha ha – get it?) to let a non Dane in?

The restaurant seems to serve a good range and we loved the idea that it served Mulled Wine, locally know as Gløgg.

This tickled all our fancies.

The furniture, design and layout were all very aesthetically pleasing and I can imagine for a Dane (well anyone really) this would be a lovely inner city retreat.
