Restaurant Grøften has a long history in Tivoli

Grøften is Tivoli's oldest restaurant and is from 1874. The characteristic and beautiful hot air balloons decorate and light up Grøften's main seating area are a tribute to former restaurateur air captain Lauritz Johansen. The captain was Grøften's host during the early 1900s and played an extensive role in shaping Grøften and its traditions as you can see it today.

Originally Grøften was linked to the neighbouring Pantomime Theatre in Tivoli. At the rear of the Restaurant Grøften, you still find the original Theatre Café. Here you sense the air of the old time Pantomime Theatre actors preparing before their performances. Admire the beautiful old dressing tables and the traditionally placed make up lights. If you are lucky perhaps you will see a famous Danish actor or another famous Dane because many visit the restaurant quite often.
