Rust resides in Copenhagen's vibrant and colourful Nørrebro area. Come and experience an intimate live music venue with a solid history and a nightclub that is always full of life and good beats.


A relic of the Cold War

You will find Rust on Guldbergsgade, in a dark building full of history. The place was originally called Kafé Rust, and from July 1989, the building served as a campaign café and party room for one of the protest movements that arose towards the end of the Cold War. Therefore, the building was named after a German man named Mathias Rust, who landed his sports aircraft in the middle of the Red Square in Moscow in 1987.

At the end of 1989, a small group of activists decided to transform the place into a regular bar and venue. After a renovation, Rust opened in 1990 as a gathering place for the Copenhagen underground music.


Different experiences on each floor

Rust has several descriptions under its umbrella: concert venue, nightclub, and bar. Each floor has its own niche – DJs and night concerts on the ground floor, a cocktail lounge, hip hop, dubstep, reggae, soul and funk music in the basement and a relaxed atmosphere in the bar on the first floor.


A key player in the Copenhagen nightlife

If there is anyone who knows how to host a party, it is Rust. On Fridays and Saturdays, Rust dazzles their guests with various live concerts all year round from 20.30. When the clock strikes 23, the hall is then transformed into a nightclub, supplemented with night concerts performed by various local and international DJs and artists.

At Rust, they range widely in terms of genres and names. You can experience both well-known names as well as new rising artists who will soon be able to say to the outside world: it started at Rust in Copenhagen. So, keep an eye (or two) on the concert calendar.
