Sidebar Closing


The New Year is always an excellent opportunity for reassessment and introspect. It is also the time to bring closure to the past and usher in new opportunities. The time when we evaluate where we are, where we have been, and where we see ourselves in the future.

It is in this spirit that we announce the closure of Sidebar as of January 1st, 2014.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the community of Aarhus, our friends, family and most importantly our employees for their support over the last seven years.  What a great seven years it has been!  When I think back on 2007, I am still overwhelmed with the guest’s positive response to our small, funny plates of ‘food for sharing’ and handcrafted classic cocktails.

We will keep our focus on the future as we begin to explore ‘off-site’ opportunities in catering, event activity and other projects as they arise.

If you have questions concerning existing gift cards and Club Card bonus points and how to redeem them,  please contact me.

Thanks again and the very best to you for 2014.

Kind regards,

Chris Lombardi

The kitchen at Sidebar takes an untraditional approach to eating.

Our dishes take their inspiration from the ordinary and strive to transform into the extraordinary. We hope that this more grounded approach will serve to surprise our guests and delight them with a more whimsical cuisine. From fat succulent shrimp to the lowly corn chip, no food is spared from our irreverent process.

The food is designed to eat. The food can be shared with others or kept to yourself. Eat at your pace, your budget and your style. Eat a little or eat a lot. Eat with a knife and fork, or eat with your hands.

This is your kitchen, your food, your Sidebar.
