  • 2. Bibliotekbaren og Vinterhaven


    If you're more partial to lounging than drinking, Hotel Bristol's Library Bar and Winter Garden is a stylish hangout with old-fashioned leather armchairs, huge marble columns, and live piano music. Politicians, musicians, and journalists have come here for nearly 100 years for informal meetings, quiet chats, or just to enjoy the tempting afternoon tea.

  • 3. Gustav


    With a free-spirited vibe, this intimate jazz club is named for Gustav Henriksen, founder of the Amerikalinjen cruise ship company. The club in the basement of the Amerikalinjen Hotel boasts an excellent sound system, atmospheric lighting, and a cool crowd that hangs around until the wee hours of the morning.

  • 4. Pier 42


    When early-20th-century Osloites decided to set sail for the United States, they embarked on the Amerikalinjen ships at Oslo Harbor.

This fun locale serves tipples from the boat's heyday, carefully assembled by the shipping line's former bar manager.

  • 6. *ISM


    This Sentrale glitzy cocktail joint comes from those at The Thief---and despite its neon lights and prices, also has an inviting charm---and a Hidden Bar for those less showy.

    Stortingsgata 12, Oslo, Oslo, Norway
  • 7. Aku-Aku


    Locals flock to this colorful, noisy, and reasonably authentic tiki bar—the only thing missing is a beach. The decor is eclectic, the music is loud, and the drinks come piled high with slices of fruit or tropical flowers.

  • 8. Andre til Høyre


    The name means "Second to the Right," and that's basically a roadmap to finding this bar up the stairs at Håndslag. It's a sumptuously decorated space, a self-confessed "mad house," designed like an elegant, living room fit for entertaining glamorous guests at all hours. Lavish seating and heavy curtains make for a wonderful setting to explore Burgundy and sparkling wines.

  • 9. Angst


    Surprisingly cozy yet lively, this bar has brightly colored walls, neon lights, and repurposed wood furniture, as well as a spacious backyard area for weekend parties.

  • 10. BA3


    The unusual name refers to the address of this stylish spot with four different bars that cater to your every mood. The Terrassebaren has a light, breezy feel, while the scarlet stools of Inkognito make it feel a bit clandestine.

  • 11. Bar Boca

    With a line of stools pulled up to the curvaceous bar, this tiny, mysterious space has been open for decades and serves up great stories, interesting regulars, and delicious cocktails.

    Thorvald Meyers gt. 30, Oslo, Oslo, 0553, Norway
  • 12. Bar Robinet


    On the edge of Sentrum, this bar is the place for late-night cocktails. (Martinis are a specialty, but if you're feeling brave ask the bartender to mix you something special.) The decor is a mishmash of checkered wallpaper, black-lacquer tables, and moody red lighting. It's around the corner from one of the hippest music venues, and the bands often head here after a set.

    Mariboes gt. 7, Oslo, Oslo, 0183, Norway
  • 13. Blå


    This is one of the most happening clubs for jazz, electronica, hip-hop, and related sounds. The patio, along the Akerselva River, is popular in summer.
