Landmark is a club located in the art museum building. Accordingly the program is rather "artsy" and creative. An urban crowd is gathering there for uncommon parties in an uncommon setting.
I went to the monthly "Stagediving" party (every last Friday of the month) and it was one of the best parties I had been to ever. It's a concept that's hard to describe and is organised by actors of the local theatre (www.den-nationale-scene.no). The theme was "Wild West" and accordingly there were lots of cowboys around... A band formed of actors sang country songs, Italian Spaghetti Western comix were projected on the wall and an actress read the texts in Italian (which probably only few understood) aloud to the public, there were shooting duells and the hit song of the evening was definitely "Jolene" by Dolly Parton to which everybody sang aloud. It was sooo crazy and sooo much fun to be there!
I also went to the party called "SnikkSnakk" on Sunday evening. It was much more quiet, with a group composed of musicians from Norway and Gambia. But very nice and cosy.
Dress Code: Can be casual, but funky or excentric is even better. Be artsy like the place... For the "Stagediving" parties a dress matching the theme is much appreciated
Metro Nightclub is a lively place where you can hang out with friends or get busy on the dance floor to music played by top dj`s.
Have a look to the bartenders, who keep you entertained with their flairing skills.
Dress Code: Smart as usual.
Northern Europe's oldest rock club!
Hulen (The Cave) is a old student rock club located in a cave in the university hill in Bergen.
What can I say... it's a cave, it got lots of athmosphere and it's mostly university students there. Hulen hosts djs and concerts.
This is a building owned and run by the student society of the University of Bergen.
The building houses a pub, a cafè, a concerthall and several smaller halls. In the weekends during the schoolyear there are often different happenings all over the building.
Very,Very well known in Bergen.
we went in on a Sunday night and it was fairly relaxed compared to the weekend.
Although a club probably the cheapest place for a beer (43Nok) perhaps to get people in on a Sunday.
played good music and a nice intimate atmosphere.
I have heard that this place is bonkers on a Saturday!!!!!
Dress Code: Casual

This is the biggest club in Bergen.
Nightclub with both live music and DJs. Among the live acts are Helge Nilsen with band, Stein Hauge, RIO, etc. The nightclub shares its premises with the restaurant and is fully licensed.
Since I am a teetotaler, non-smoker, living-below-my-means practitioner, and Warren Buffet wannabe who invests diligently and smartly, I see the banality of draining money to buy alcoholic drinks and cigarettes--worst if you even finance this habit with your credit card debts!
I strongly believe that we should let our money work for us, not working our buns off for money only to burn and drain it in the toilet. Hence, I can only give you a serene thrifty healthy nightlife tip as shown in the picture. HA...HA...HA.... Gotcha!!! ;-P
