Norway Nightlife

  • Blaa -

    Oslo Nightlife

    Blaa is such a fun place to visit. It is a hippie, artisty kind of place, as it were, and here is live music, which is how I found this place in the first place... I just followed the music without knowing that there was anything down there by Akerselva river. Was I wrong! It is just my kind of place. On Sundays there is a market in Ingens gate -...

  • Club / Disco

    Bergen Nightlife

    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...

  • Carneval

    Stavanger Nightlife

    Why not participate in a Carnival? At that time (1984) ,Stavanger arranged great street parades. How it is today, I would not know, but comparing it to Rio, Trinidad or Venedig would be overrating the event.

  • Bajazzo

    Trondheim Nightlife

    Has been the favourite hang out for people in Trondheim for a long time. This is also the place where Rosenborg bring their visiting team in the Champions league to party. Inside this place there is a nightclub, sportsbar, cafe (with internet access) I am not sure about the dress code here - but they're trying to be hip here so dress trendy..(but...

    Oslo Nightlife

    All roads lead to UTSIDE - The best place to begin, middle or end an evening during the summer in OSLO. OK I am a bit bias because my host Stian was a bartender there and we never wait in line, but it really is a great place to go. For starters, it seems like it is always the right mix of people (aka variety). Some folks are dressed up headed to or...

  • Pubs.

    Bergen Nightlife

    Cafe Ugla is a somewhat bizarre cross between a cafe, a restaurant, a pub and a nightclub. The sign out front refers to the venue as a restaurant/night club. One website refers to it as a student bar with "cheap beer and occasional concerts". To me, it was a cross between a pub and a working men's club. However, the reason that Mette (VTer:...

  • Cafe 3B

    Trondheim Nightlife

    Popular place in the center of Trondheim offering cheap beer and wine. If you want to hear what the genuine Trondelag / Norwegian / Scandinavian rock music sounds like then this is the place to be since they often have concerts held by local artists. If there’s no concert then you can enjoy the rock, reggae, hip hop and underground music at their...

    Oslo Nightlife

    Well, in practical, during the summer you cannot really call it nightlife as it was sunshine when I went into a club (around 11 PM) and was sunshine again when went out. (around 2 AM) Places were great for dancing, rock music and went even to one nice jazz club. I cannot remember names, places had sometimes funny names as Rorbua :-)

    Bergen Nightlife

    The USF is the old Sardine Factory on the Nordnes Peninsula. It's been converted to a multi-use facility that houses a variety of performance spaces, studios, and this wonderful outdoor patio bar. I was fortunate to be there for part of the annual summer jazz festival. Enjoying a couple of pints of lager while watching the sun set - at midnight -...

    Trondheim Nightlife

    HARVEYS(picture), the best place in Trondheim! Beautyful people & cool bartenders. Best bar/cafe is VIVALDI, BARSOFA . Lots of beautyful people in these 2 places. RIO is the place for Salsarythms and bikinis. Opposite side of the road DOWNTOWN is also worth a visit. Also very close to these two, a new place called TigerTiger opened recently. Take a...

  • Café.

    Bergen Nightlife

    If you are younger than...me, look for the small cafes and restaurants near the University campus (located on top of the hill with the red church you will see from the central square). Cafe Opera (near the Theater and Cinema Halls) is one of the best choices for reasonably prised food or a drink later on.

  • Samfundet

    Trondheim Nightlife

    Samfundet is an almost completely round building just south of the river. It's owned and run competely by students. Concerts are held here as well as debates. The finances comes mainly from membership, but also from admissions and the event UKA held every second year. UKA sets the whole house, and indeed the whole town on it's head. Almost...

  • T.G.I. Friday's

    Oslo Nightlife

    A little hesitant to enter into this establshment(being from America and wanting to experience unique places). However, this place was consistently packed and was an easy place to grab a drink and chat up the locals. Again, super friendly staff (common throughout Norway) and a cool crowd. Certain nights better than others but always a buzz. Went...

  • Consert

    Bergen Nightlife

    I was fortunate to be able to get a seat for the closing concert of the 2002 Bergen International Festival. You have to hand it to the Bergen-ites: their festival is truly extensive and cosmopolitan. At the same time, it's true that they do love their home, and it is fitting that the Festival ends every year with a performance of one the greatest...

    Trondheim Nightlife

    There are two movie theatres in Trondheim – Prinsen kinosenter on Prinsens gate and Nova kinosenter at Olav Tryggvasons gate. They both have several different halls and show a variety of movies ranging from Hollywood blockbusters to Scandinavian comedies. Seeing a film in English is a great way to improve your Norwegian since films are shown in...

  • Olavshallen

    Trondheim Nightlife

    Since most of the plays at Trondheim Theatre (www.trondelag-teater.no) are in Norwegian, if you’re into some “classical” culture then classic music at Olavskvartalet hall is a good choice. You can attend weekly concerts of the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra (www.tso.no) as well as some other guest artists from Norway and abroad. Sometimes on...

  • Panorama Bar - Radisson SAS Plaza

    Oslo Nightlife

    This is the bar at the top floor, 34 or so at the Radisson SAS Plaza Hotel in the city centre. You can take the elevator straight to the top (when its working). The service was very nice and the view is just great.

  • Posepilten

    Trondheim Nightlife

    This is one of the best places to go out in Trondheim, especially if you enjoy rock music. In the basement you find a rock club called Jesper Nattmann. (everyone says just Jesper). It's crowded and the music is loud, but more people is more fun:o) Upstairs is the daytime cafè Posepilten. At night this becomes a night club as well. Not so crowded...

  • Smuget

    Oslo Nightlife

    This was one of the coolest places I went out while I was in Oslo! It features quite a schedule of live bands and even has a way for people to try out to have a free for all night. They also have a restaurant and a dance room for more hip-hop, trance folks. There is about a 100NK cover and the drinks can get expensive quick. But I saw the band...

  • Bare Blåbær

    Trondheim Nightlife

    Situated in trendy Elvehavn area this place is a little bit aside from the rest of the places and a little bit different. Very popular during weekends they offer cozy atmosphere in unique space with colorful murals. You can sit comfortably in sofas that will make it hard for you to get up and leave early. More colorful than their murals are only...

  • Harry's Bar

    Oslo Nightlife

    This place is located right next to Friday’s in Karl Johansgate, and it’s very similar to it’s neighbour. It’s a very popular place, and there are always lots of people here. The music is the normal commercial songs that are popular at the time, but it’s ok. They also have a restaurant in the basement, and it’s nice to take some drinks here after...

  • Coffee Annan

    Trondheim Nightlife

    Besides similar name this place at Trondheim?s ISAK community center has nothing to do with the UN Secretary general. During the day they offer light snacks and sandwiches and soups. At evenings there are frequent concerts by rock / underground local artists, and if nothing happens live then you can enjoy the same kind of music in a relaxed...

  • Cafe con Bar

    Oslo Nightlife

    This is one of those great little places in Oslo that is always fun to go to. It is open late and the food is not that bad either. Try a "Filbeck" (I am unsure how to spell it). It is a combination drink of aquivit, vodka and sprite. It is pretty good though. No dress code-come as you are.

    more
  • Bar Boca

    Oslo Nightlife

    This is a very small and charming bar. It's decorated in a nice 50's retrostyle and has a few tables where you can sit down. It is very popular on weekdays too and it can be quite crowded sometimes. You better not be too claustrophobic... ;) The cocktails here are excellent and you should check out the very large selection that they have. The...

  • Rockefeller Music Hall

    Oslo Nightlife

    Most of the good, yet not overly large concerts occur here (national and international acts). There are three venues: John Dee in the basement, Rockefeller above, and Sentrum Scene across the street. If you are coming to Oslo and want to see a concert, I'd check out their webpage to see what's on. Casual

  • Herr Nilsen

    Oslo Nightlife

    I'm an Engineer, age 56, working in Oslo now for a 6 month assignment. I was excited to find this place since it looked like there were some fantastic jazz shows here. Then I had the unfortunate experience of meeting the owner, sitting with three other gentlemen, who seemed very amused at my questions about the beer menu. He made sure that he was...

  • Chairs & The London Pub

    Oslo Nightlife

    Certainly unimpressive on the exterior, and rather confusing about its names, this is nonetheless one of the best gay places in Central Oslo. I've always had a good time when I come here; often I end up staying until the bar closes at 3 a.m. Downstairs is a warren of dimly lit but comfortable rooms for meeting or crusing; upstairs is a rather...

  • Beer Palace

    Oslo Nightlife

    A good, cosy pub with a lot of different beers on the meny. Just a few on draught though so if you are a "draught-fan" you try something else. Friendly people, knowledgable staff and good location. In short a good night out! Casual

  • Paragrafen

    Oslo Nightlife

    Paragrafen (the Paragraph) and Justisen (the Justice) share a courtyard and a rambling historic building not far from where everything happens in Oslo. I love this cozy place - it's youthful (but not exclusively so), casual, somewhat alternative, loud and convivial and full of happy people. I think all the floors here are uneven, the stairs slant,...

  • Cafe Sara

    Oslo Nightlife

    Café Sara has very cheap food, and I have described more about it on the restauranttips. It's very nice to start the evening with a cheap dinner and some drinks here. Or you can eat something on your way home from the city, because they also serve food late. Some years ago it was mostly broke artists or young students who were interested in the...

  • Apotheket Cafe

    Oslo Nightlife

    Another masterpiece of the art of naming places. It means 'The Drugstore'. The place is very cosy, the food is excellent, there is always a flower on each table, special concerts take place there every now and then. It's fun to stay at the balcony too. The waiters are very nice and back in 98 almost all of them spoke fluent portuguese, english and...

  • Mikrobryggeriet

    Oslo Nightlife

    If you like fresh craft beers, Oslo Mikro Bryggeri in the West End is the place to go. This is a busy, crowded place - not the atmosphere for a quiet conversation with old friends, but it is a place to make new friends who share an interest in good beer. I thought the porter was quite good - four stars. The stout was also a good effort - three...

    more
  • Cafe Sør

    Oslo Nightlife

    This popular place is a cafe a day-time serving coffees, tea and soft drinks, and a selection of cakes and cookies and a buzzing bar/club at night with fantastic drinks (made with fresh fruits and ingredients) and music played by different DJs. The music is usually disco/80s pop-tunes/soul/funk. It's a very international atmosphere with guests of...

  • Tørst -

    Oslo Nightlife

    This is a very nice pub. Its name means 'thirst', and it's just beside another place called 'Sult' ('hunger'). So, depending on what you want, it's all handy! ;) It's a very intelligent concept of pub I think. Starting by the name! The music can be annoying sometimes, but that's the least to pay attention to! Dress cute, they have transparent...

  • Waldemar Pub aka Waldemars

    Oslo Nightlife

    Waldemars is a nice place to be. Well... very convenient of me to say such a thing - I live 5 minutes walk from the spot! It's a cozy place, with outdoor and indoor tables, nice service, not very expensive beer (NOK 42). Nice during the summer, nice during the autumn... I'll tell you about winter in two months. ;) Ahh - good place for first dates -...

    Colosseum Kino is the largest cinema in Scandinavia. It is also the largest THX cinema in the world. The cinema was established in the early 20th century and was designed by Jacob Hansen and Gerhard Iversen. It has a huge dome which measures approximately 40 meters in diameter. The size of the dome is quite similar to those of St. Peter's basilica...

  • 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...

  • Watching classical concert in Oslo

    To enjoy your evening in the city of Oslo, you may want to watch some classical or jazz concerts which are very popular in Oslo. The venue is of course Oslo Concert Hall (Oslo Koncerthus in Norwegian) which is situated in Vika. Oslo Concert Hall is home to the famous Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra. It is one of the main music venues for Norwegians'...

    And after the good food, the music and the dance, how about a "chilly" bath in the Stryn Lake turqoise waters?This is another "not-to-be-missed" thing in the fjords area.
