Evening/Night time places to go?

  • BLÅ (or blaa) this is a nice place to sit outside and have a drink. The street is: Brenneriveien 9c <http://www.blaaoslo.no/kontakt.asp>
  • Stratos: This is a place middle in the center (at a place called Yongstorget) here you find a bar at the top of the building where you have the view over Oslo. Very Nice.
  • Parkteateret: this is a bar/cafe in the area of Grünerløkka – this is I think a very nice area in Oslo.
  • Fisk og vilt – this is a bar in the same area of Youngstorget (near by the Stratos). Nice place to go. Not very big.
  • Dattera til Hagen (this bar/cafe you find in the area of Grønland (it has a very nice backyard)
