Karriere Bar is a bar and restaurant in the Meatpacking District of Copenhagen, Denmark, co-founded by Berlin-based, Danish artist Jeppe Hein in 2007. The establishment features interactive and Site-specific art by various international artists. Co-founded by Danish artist Jeppe Hein, it opened in 2007 as one of the first new places to open in the Meatpacking District.
