Este debe ser uno de los bares más íntimos de Oslo, con apenas suficiente lugar para cinco mesas pequeñas. El ambiente es cálido, con un sutil estilo de los años 50. Su principal atracción es su propietario, Jan Varden. Es uno de los pocos entusiastas en Noruega que adora preparar cocteles, y su habilidad lo ha convertido en una especie de celebridad. Si quiere lo mejor en tragos, definitivamente este es el lugar que debe visitar.
Hay uno de estos en cada ciudad importante y felizmente uno en Oslo: un lugar que luce como jazz, se siente jazz, huele a jazz y definitivamente suena a jazz. Herr Nilsen es un pequeño e íntimo café de jazz con conciertos los jueves, viernes y sábados. Los tragos tienen precios accesibles y el personal es siempre simpático. Sirven bocaditos de comida ligera. Este es el tipo de lugar donde puede sentarse y relajarse con tranquilidad.
Do you like soccer? Do you like Arsenal? If the answers are "yes", you will like Highbury. As the name implies, this is where fans of the London-based soccer team meet when the Gunners enter the field. You can also enjoy watching Norwegian and international soccer on a big-screen TV. Highbury has an atmosphere that soccer-lovers from all over the world will recognize and appreciate. Scarves, T-shirts and pictures accompany a wide variety of English and Norwegian beers, which are sold at average prices. Get in there early if there is an important match on.
What's could be better than listening to some of the best DJs in Norway while surrounded by plenty of food, alcohol, and beautiful people? Perhaps doing all of that 12 stories above the ground, atop the historic Folkteateret building, with a beautiful panoramic view of the bustling city of Oslo would be an improvement. This is the premise of Stratos. For most of the year it is rented out for weddings or corporate events, but during certain holidays and the summer months it opens up to the public as a nightclub featuring live music, DJs, and an unforgettable view. Call or email for table reservations.
Stravinsky is a large and popular disco club designed for dancing. It is not too far from the main street and, thus, is easy to find. Beer and most spirits are served. 80s music is the primary focus of the club, but classic pop and more modern music are played occasionally as well. Trendy people who want a bit of conversation and a lot of dancing and mingling will feel at home here. The minimum age of admission is 20, which ensures a more mature atmosphere than many other discos. The admission fees are not prohibitive, so this is a rather popular place to spend at least part of the evening.
This gourmet restaurant, located in the heart of Oslo's oldest neighborhood, is run by award-winning chef Bent Stiansen. A varied menu is available, compiled from the freshest and best available ingredients. The beautiful and stylistic 18th-century décor just adds to the restaurant's ambiance. The restaurant consists of five small rooms with an intimate atmosphere. The ceiling contains some of the finest stucco work in northern Europe. Guests must be suitably dressed (jacket and tie for men).
El café en el Grand Hotel era el favorito del pintor Edvard Munch y del escritor Henrik Ibsen (todavía conserva su propia mesa). Aunque no lo frecuentan más los anarquistas bebedores de ajenjo o los artistas locos, el Grand es aún un importante lugar de encuentro y sirve un delicioso sandwich de lagostino. Encontrará el bar de sandwiches, pasteles y ensaladas más grande de Noruega. El menú a la carta le ofrece una amplia selección de excelentes platos.
Dedicated solely to Jazz music, this nightclub is a cozy place to go, for all the devotees of Jazz music. This venue has over the years become a meeting ground for talented musicians seeking to explore different rhythms and explore the variations that can be created with jazz music. With a high seating capacity, this hall often tends to get crowded and finding seats is difficult so if you plan to catch up on one of the concerts happening there make sure you reach well in advance.
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.
Oslo has several soccer teams, but it is only Vålerenga that is able to make people raise their voices, shake their heads in disgust, cry or laugh. Through years of scandals this working-class team has been able to come back again and again. Their fans, called "the Clan," populate a few pubs around town, Bohemen being one of them. Several TV screens make sure that everyone who has an interest in soccer is able to get a good view; the beer is cheap, and the atmosphere open and welcoming. If you want to see what real Norwegian soccer fans look like, Bohemen is the place to go.
Last Train on Karl Johan Street has a long tradition of housing musicians, especially those with a predilection for rock. It has been the starting-point for countless Norwegian chart-raiders and flops, and is still important for those who want to be seen with the right people. If you feel like taking a break from the ultra-trendy and fashionable parts of Oslo, Last Train is a useful hideout. The beer is inexpensive and staff and patrons alike are generally nice and welcoming. Even the bouncers have a nice reputation.
