It is dominated by Elijah's Church.History and architectureThe square was established in 1850. Its triangular shape of the space was determined by a series of rope walks which used to be located at the site. The two buildings which flank Elijah's Church date from the establishment of the square.The church was completed as an infill in 1907. It is designed by Martin Nyrop.On the opposite side of the square, the two buildings which flank the passageway which passes through The New Theatre, one of them with a characteristic tower, was built as part of the large theatre complex. The theatre was inaugurated in 1908 and is built to a design which mixes Art Nouveaux with other styles.FeaturesHercules FountainThe Hercules Fountain dates from 1915 and was a gift from the society Hovedstadens forskønnelse. It was designed by the sculptor Rasmus Harboe who had previously created the reliefs on the facade of Elijah's Church.Memorial plaqueA plaque on No. 55A commemorates the World War II resistance fighter Erik Koch Michelsen.

Traditionel café. Traditionel menu + specialiteter. Jeg fik en ganske ok sandwich med laks. Caféen er som de øvrige på Vesterbro Torv mere forstadsagtige end Københavneragtige. Ikke noget smart københavneri her. Ok priser. GooglePlace - September 2017

Desværre en kedelig oplevelse. Uoplagte ansatte, ringe service og til tider slet ikke eksisterende. Maden var ikke noget som der kunne jubles over. Vi oplevede at vente flere gange ved "buffet-brunchen" pga manglende mad og drikkevarer. Selvom vi gjorde opmærksom på at der manglede f.eks. pandekager, bacon el. brød så blev dette først genopfyldt efter laaaaang tid. Da pandekagerne endelig kom var de nærmest frosne... Jeg ville kunne forstå de tomme fade og manglende personale hvis der var travlt og alle borde var besatte, men vi var nærmest det eneste selskab udover 2 - 3 andre borde. Øv... Jeg hverken kan eller vil anbefale dette sted. GooglePlace - September 2017

Tasty Middle Eastern influenced food in a relaxed setting. The "garlic bread" is closer to a white pizza, but very good nevertheless. The plates were excellent. And the hummus? 👍👍👍 Foursquare - October 2016
