Mad & Vin at The Landsby is a wonderful spot to enjoy happy hour when you are visiting Solvang. “Mad and vin” is Danish for “food and wine,” which makes perfect sense as a description for what you’ll find at this restaurant and bar.
The Landsby is a beautiful boutique hotel in downtown Solvang. The Mad & Vin Bar is located in the hotel lobby adjacent to the dining room. Since I was there for happy hour, I found a comfortable seat in the bar area. The modern Scandinavian decor fits right in with the rest of downtown Solvang, which has been called “Little Denmark.”
Mad & Vin has happy hour daily from 4 to 6pm. I was there on a Sunday. It wasn’t overly crowded, but there was a steady stream of people in and out. Some came in for a quick drink. Others lingered over drinks and food.
The happy hour menu has a variety of specially priced food and drink items. I turned happy hour into dinner. Others were just having snacks before a bigger meal. I had a cheese board and a buckwheat noodle salad that was delicious. I also ordered their daily cocktail special that was garnished with a fresh raspberry and mint leaves.
The food, drink, service and overal experience were great at Mad & Vin’s happy hour. It’s a nice place to relax after a long day.
