In April 2017, chef and creator Frederik Bille Brahe opened Apollo Bar and Kantine in two bright rooms with soaring ceilings and generously proportioned windows at Kunsthal Charlottenborg/Charlottenborg Palace.
With Apollo, Frederik Bille Brahe was one of the first to celebrate and reinvent the idea of a typical museum café in Denmark. Focusing on international visions and renewal Frederik Bille Brahe saw the opening of Apollo, as an opportunity to penetrate the system, break down expectations and instead create something people didn’t already know they needed.
Décor, by designer Rune Bruun Johansen, is sparse but full of thoughtful touches, such as Børge Mogensen’s ‘J39’ chairs – inherited from the art school next door.
