Unsure what to do on an evening in Reykjavik, we came across The Secret Cellar. We visited for the Comedy night, really good night with a good selection of drinks and a great host. Definitely worth a visit.

Definitely unprofessional comedians trying out their chops but to no avail. One even used an audience member as someone to make fun of in a sexual manner. Wouldn't go on Wednesdays for this weekly event. Dan, the bartender, was superb and performs on other nights...More

Hi, there. There is an age limit, 20 years. That is the legal drinking age in Iceland and also some of the humour might not be appropriate for a young audience.
