    Chat Noir, Oslo: Enjoying cabaret show in the evening

    by hopang Updated Sep 16, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Chat Noir is a revue and cabaret theater located right in the heart of Oslo. It is probably the only cabaret theater in Oslo as far as we know. It derives its name from Le Chat Noir cabaret theater in Paris. Chat Noir is in French language which literally means black cat. Chat Noir was founded in the early 20th century by Bokken Lasson. This is a great show to spend your evening in Oslo especially for those who are interested in cabaret shows.

    Chat Noir is currently showing "The Showgirls must go on!" in the theater nightly. An admission ticket costs approximately NOK 500.00 per adult. You may reserve your tickets at the below website or search for the other programme performing in the theater. We don't have any clue until when the shows must go on, probably until December 2012 we believe. You may e-mail to the following address for further information:-

    Dress Code: No proper dress code is required.

    Parktearet Scene: crazy sounds

    by stevefrancyclancy Updated Jan 3, 2008

    Again In the Grunerlokka area. Odd place and difficult to descibe but really enjoyable.
    really great but slightly alternative music in a theater like setting, with a cool bar at back for people watching. friendly young crowd, cheapish drinks (for Norway) and free entry. 2 bands a nite normally. but quality of music and atmosphere was real selling point.

    A lot of nightclub here .Bring a lot of money

    by LeXUS_ Updated Apr 28, 2006

    I dont have a specific nightclub/bar to recomend cause there are a lot of them.

    In oslo you go to the Centre and you will find people wandering arround .But in clubs you have to be at lest 23 to get in.Other let in 18 and up.

    I dont drink,but i have friends who do and they complain over the alcohol prices here.

    Pretty dead nightlife on work days.

    Firday & Saturday : Most norwegian youngsters are out and having "fun"

    Most of the Clubs & Bars close 04-05 at night.If you live far from the centre,get ready to stand in long taxi lines.So if you are smart try to get home one hour before the closing-

    Dress Code: Be clean and dressed nicely .Some of the guards at the door wont let you inn if you are drunk.

    Romanian party in the fjords

    by Diana75 Updated Mar 12, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The welcoming camping we have stayed in during our journey in the fjords, had also a platform for the barbecue on the Strynvatn (Stryn Lake) shore.

    And how could we miss a party together with a tasteful Romanian food and wonderful music.

    Did I forget to mention also the dance?

    Color Fantasy ferry Oslo-Kiel-Oslo: Nightlife, ship, hotel, restaurant and transport?

    by Saagar Written Dec 28, 2004

    Complimenting the ships already plying the stretch Oslo-Kiel (Germany) and return, Color Fantasy is put into service as of 10 December.
    The main idea is to get you transported from Kiel to Oslo or the other way including your car.
    The secondary idea is to entertain you while aboard.
    The key focus is in any case to make you get rid of the money, day and night.
    There are seven catgories of accommodation and eating on board, nightclubs, discos, a spa and fitness center, a theatre etc. Then there is tax-free shopping for starved Norwegians..., when the 8 restaurants on board don't fill them up on what they need.
    It's common to do the travel from Oslo to Kiel and back just for the party. Companies organise courses and seminars on board for there staff.

    Low season is Jan-Feb with cruise fares down to NOK 990 per person double occupancy.

    Dress Code: Depends on your mood and interest, and the level of eating and entertainment you're into.

  • Bars/Clubs: Nights out

    by eap685 Written Dec 19, 2004

    Be careful to budget for nighttime activities. Everything closes at five or six at night except for the bars and clubs. These are very fun, but are also very pricey. It was not unheard of to spend $15 just to get in.

    Dress Code: No dress code

  • The Black Dungeon: The sexiest Norwegian nightlife tip ever!!!

    by YokuMoku Updated Jul 27, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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

    Nights are for sleeping

    by Lisa_est Written May 21, 2003

    If you go snowboarding then seriously try to get some sleep instead of going wild every night. Still, afterski is healthy as well. Try local pubs in the mountains or locla bars in the town where you are staying.

    The midnight sun

    by SirRichard Written Nov 11, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The sun never sets in this part of the world in august. They have a period of time in which you always have sun, 24 hours a day. The sun actually goes down towards the horizon, but never gets "into" the sea, it goes up again and so on...
    Nevertheless, the sun is not as bright at midnight as it is (sometimes) at noon. At midnight you have a foggy light, like a cloudy day. But enough to change your sleeping hours and weird to wake you up at 2 or 3 in the morning and see light around.
    Strange sensation...

    The Midnight Sun

    by GUYON Updated Oct 16, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A 300 m high cliff upon the Artic Ocean. A large parking (34Kr)and a huge building partially underground. A free presentation film of 20 mn (the line is long but the hall is large) and a small museum about the Cape. You can eat and drink seeing the midnight sun. In the Grotten Bar, a bust of Louis-Philippe 1er, King of French people, because he was one of the first tourists in 1795, when he was only the Duke of Orleans in exile. Open from 9AM to 2 AM.
    What a nightlife when there is no night. You can buy souvenirs at the local supermarket, or phone to your friends saying : 'Wake up ! Here it's midnight and the sun shines' , or put the stamp 'North Cape' on your passport, or buy a diploma 'I was here'.
    We did not really see the Midnigth Sun which was hidden by the clouds. It is very rare to see a round sun as on the traditional postcard.

    Dress Code: You can try to come in T shirt. It is allowed even in Winter (see the illustration 'Packing List').

    Sir Winston's Pub, Kilkenny's,...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sir Winston's Pub, Kilkenny's, lots of others right on or within 50m of Carl Johan's Gate.
    Oslo is a great pub place, with friendly people and lots of tall blondes. It is a great place to have a few beers, watch and meet people...
