Dit is waarschijnlijk een van de meest intieme bars van Oslo, met net genoeg ruimte voor vijf tafels. De sfeer is warm en in een bewuste jaren '50 stijl. De grootste bezienswaardigheid is de eigenaar, Jan Varden. Hij is een van de weinige enthousiastelingen in Noorwegen op het gebied van cocktails mixen, en zijn kunsten hebben van hem een beetje beroemd gemaakt. Als je de beste drankjes wilt, moet je zeker hier naartoe.
Elke grote stad heeft er een en gelukkig geldt dat ook voor Oslo: een plek die jazz ademt. Herr Nilsen is een klein en intiem jazz café met regelmatig concerten op de donderdag, vrijdag en zaterdag. De drankjes zijn goed te betalen en de bediening is altijd aardig. Lichte snacks zijn te verkrijgen. Dit is de plek waar je achterover kunt leunen en kunt ontspannen.
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.

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.
