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.
