AMBRA is a perfect Italian place for a casual, easy and relaxed night out on any day.

On entering AMBRA from the buzzing street of Store Kongensgade, guests are welcomed into an expansive space featuring double-height ceilings with exposed features that celebrate the building’s industrial origin. Towering banquette seating and a cloud of large bespoke Space Copenhagen chandeliers for &Tradition bring a sense of human scale to the space, with the chandeliers providing a soft ceiling suspended in mid-air.

A 10-metre-long wooden bar, crowned with a brown travertine bar top offers guests a place to enjoy drinks, small plates, and lively conversation. Softly upholstered banquettes, lounge chairs and dining seating from, surround the bar in nuances of ochre and dark plum, complemented by tables in brown travertine and yellow marble.

Space Copenhagen opted for simple and minimal spatial features and surfaces for AMBRA, which provide a subtly decorative aesthetic to the space. The light chalky walls, which are treated with the beautiful marble paint from St. Leo, are complimented with earthy tones of terracotta brick flooring, with warm wooden panels partially covering walls and niches.

Eclectic and playful elements are spread out throughout the space to enhance the relaxed atmosphere of the restaurant, with vintage pieces from Barbara Werner and Holly Golightly – like the big Italian vintage brass shell lamps which light up and frame the bar with its bespoke soft and wavy shelves. Elsewhere a unique large handwoven Gobelin from the 18th century, sourced for the space, is hung on the wall – bringing color and a dreamy, poetic landscape of peach trees into the space.
