“Pub located in an old workshop.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

This pub is located in one of the few remaining buildings from when this area was full of factories and workshops. The interior is decidedly rustic, which is part of the charm of this place. A good selection of un-fancy wines by the glass and bottle as well as a decent beer menu. No food served on premises, but you are welcome to bring/order food from the nearby restaurants.

This is an excellent place for an after-work beer, chatting,or earlier in the evening, for reading. The place is always packed, but will reserve a table for you.

“Beer and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

Came here after a Depeche Mode concert in Telenor Arena. Paulaner weissbier on tap was the main attraction, but the atmosphere turned out to be excellent too.

“Oslo's No. 1 After Work Bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

On Thursdays and Fridays, try to beat the after work crowd, which in Norway means, be there well before 4 p.m. You're allowed to bring your own food, so get take-away from any of the small restaurants across the square. Enjoy the great selection of beers and the atmosphere!

“Nice place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

If you buy your take-away another place, it is ok to sit down and eat your food here, but buy something to drink here. Nice place if you want to read the paper, or share a bottle of wine with friends. Lots of people are visiting:)
