A nice area with a lot restaurants- coffee shops and places where you can just have a beer. There are also many events which take place in that area. Very easy to access (it is between Grünerløkka and Torshov).

In a guide we saw this neighbourhood and it looked interesting. And it is. I liked the diversity of things to do: from art and culture to shopping and new restaurants.

Close to the river, Akerselva(nice for walks) is Vulcan. Used to be heavy industry, now transformed to a marketplace with hotel(s), restaurants, bars and shops. Easy parking too!

Very buzzing is this Vulkan area. We wanted to have dinner at Mathallen, but ended at Dognville and a great dance performance in Dansens Hus. A great night out, and very spontaneous too!

There's plenty to do here. It's close to Grunerløkka too. Bars, restaurants amd food markets (over priced and way too expensive) football pubs and much more. Include this into your river walk.

Really nice place to be around, this place has just being renewed, there is a market place with some restaurants and some shops, also some hotels and a river park that cut the city by half
