Our hotel barman recommended this place. We never would have found it. Located behind a mosque, it looks like a disused warehouse. But don't give up on it, follow it around to the entrance and you'll find a great bar with comfy sofas, lounge music and a relaxed atmosphere. Prices, like everywhere in Oslo, are extortionate, but you can bring... More

The Good: Nice crowd Champagne at a good price point Good atmosphere The Bad: Location (Grønland) The Ugly: Emphasis on "specialty" products that: Taste downright bad Put too much focus on what yo're drinking

I only ever go here in the summer. I'm not sure why. But it's just as good inside as it is outside. There's a nice charming feel to the place. The service is also very good.

I like this place. It has a great atmosphere and the interior is ever so charming. They have a great selection of beer and drinks, but everything is very expensive. They don't serve any food, but rumour has it that you're allowed to bring your own take-away.

This place is difficult to describe, you'll just have to go there. It is a restaurant without food... you simply bring your own, and order your drinks at the bar. But you can, of course, go there without eating. The interior is really unique, cozy and hip at the same time. Int the summer there is a beautiful patio as... More

Cool interior with random pieces of furniture everywhere and art on every wall. It's got a good chilled out wibe and offers a BASIC selection of beer of tap. Just be aware of the 23 age limit. On the weekend and evenings I can complete understand this. However, on a weekday at 4pm and heading out for a post-work pint,... More

On a short weekend break to Oslo for a friends 50th we were lucky enough to stay in the apartments directly opposite this bad. Around 5pm on the Friday we could see a nice chatty crowd at the bar so we decided to check it out. What a stroke of luck! This bar is great, really dark and cost with... More

Shares a building with the better advertised Dramatikhus but worth seeking out. Quirky decor, laid back and friendly.

Laid back bar for grown ups (30+). Relaxed music, interesting environment and location. Choice of wines should be better, considering the age of the customers.

The venue is great, the atmosphere is super relaxed and the staff are very nice (in that Scandinavian cool type of way). The drinks are a bit cheaper than other parts of the city (about £6.50 for a pint of local beer). The best thing about this place is that they let you bring your own food in and eat... More
