There are things that are more important than music, you will say. More important than dancing, talking, drinking. Are you thinking soccer? Andy's is one of a few pubs in Oslo where the real action does not happen at night, but around 4p on Saturdays and Sundays (later on some weekdays). Andy's is lively and welcoming to all soccer-lovers. The prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is just as good as that at a match. In short, Andy's is a great place to stop by if you enjoy soccer or enjoy watching people who watch soccer. Check out the website for more.

Teddys Softbar is as close as you can come to John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John, shiny hair and the golden days of nylon while on a day (or night) out in Oslo. Teddys opened about the same time as Elvis was getting ready for his military service, and has survived the changes of time with grace. The guests range from the curious student to musicians and people in the entertainment industry who all enjoy a blast from the past. Try the food - the kitchen serves simple, homemade Norwegian dishes, with no fashionable extras.
34 floors above the hustle and bustle of city life at the summit of the Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel, 34 SkyBar offers magnificent views across Oslo. 34 SkyBar is popular hangout for Oslo's business elite, so it is a great place to network.

However, you will need an executive salary to fully enjoy the range of drinks on offer.
BAR Vulkan is great place to sip on delectable blends while gorging on tantalizing dishes. Nestled in Grunerlokka neighborhood, this bar is located right on the banks of the Aker river.

At a first glance, Oslo Mikrobryggeri seems a very regular and cozy pub. However, after receiving your beverage and sitting down in the dark and wooden interior you'll taste the unusually fresh and strong punch of your beverage, and you'll notice the brewing kettles in plain sight. Then it will hit you. The microbrewery's own beer is produced in its tiny brewery in the cellar, and the quality is excellent. Be aware that the level of alcohol at this establishment is a bit more aggressive than in most other Norwegian beers. Oslo Mikrobryggeri is not located on Bogstadveien as its address states, but on one of its side streets. It is easy to find once you are aware of this.
