Romanian party in the fjords
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?Related to:

The Black Dungeon: The sexiest Norwegian nightlife tip ever!!!
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! ;-PRelated to:

The midnight sun
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.

Chat Noir, Oslo: Enjoying cabaret show in the evening
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.

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...
The Midnight Sun
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').

The meaning of a good nightlife is different from person to person, and country to country. I like quiet nights and I like it to be rock'n roll. I bet you agree that this picture shows an alternative way of spending the night.

There is no favorite nightlife , very cool to go with a friend to some nice club or Pub & drink good
beer or coffee , The second is to take a view at the sunset & think about the life ..and relax .
Norwegian nightlife customs have changed radically
in recent years,with the subsequnet effect that liquor
laws & openning hours have been considerably liberalised. All norwegian cities have bars and pubs
that offer a full range of alcoholic beverages and most towns over a certain size have a pub.Most hotels
have bars.You will find discos and nightclubs in most cities and in many towns,particulary in the weekends.In the cities the hotels offer restaurant service into the night,but nightclubs in the continental sense are not widespread in Norway.Many of the hotels at winter resort offer after-ski gathering.
