In 2007 Lærke Hein and her brother opened a restaurant/bar/club/art project named Karriere. They changed the nightlife culture in Copenhagen by locating the bar in an highly unusual location; the abandoned Meatpacking District.

This became a huge success and spurred many restaurants, bars and clubs to open in the area surrounding Karriere. Besides Karriere, Hein owns I Like Locals, Here and Away and Youngbeats, plus she is chairman of Distortion Festival and Rabal.
