Excellent place to visit for a drink!
All the beer on tap (at least when I visited) was Icelandic. It was amazing, from raspberry sour to a mango pale ale. A little bit steep but when it’s one of the nicest bars and with such fantastic tasting local beer, you can’t complain.

It’s lovely, warm and cosy inside and in the evening a lovely atmosphere with locals and tourists all enjoying a few beverages.

There is an outdoor area which is covered and has outdoor heating, if anyone is partial to a smoke like me.

The bar staff are very friendly and happy to talk through what they have to offer if you aren’t properly familiar with all the beer terminology.

Couldn’t recommend enough. Perfect for couples, mates or even on your own.

We stopped at this bar before dinner one night on the recommendation of our Lonely Planet book. We had a great time cozying up in one of the corners and trying some of their locally brewed seasonal beers. This is a great place right on the main street and walkable from a lot of hotels and restaurants. The price point was really reasonable as well, especially for Reykjavik.

Unlike many bars in Reykjavik these bar tenders are engaging, fast and efficient. They are so good good that they're worth tipping!!!

There's a great vibe in this bar coupled with a solid beer & liquor collection.

Some outdoor seating on the busy Laugavegur,

Visited the place during happy hour with a friends during our stay at Reykjavik. The place was packed mainly with locals but this gave a cosy feeling to the situation. The staff was helpful and polite. Ask and try any of the local Gins. There were quite delicious.

Local bar with lots of character and a truly laid-back vibe in a central location. Good service and some good beer on draft. Many locals seem to come in at the end of the day after work, even though the bar is in the heart of the touristy area. Easy as a solo traveller to sit at the bar and have a pint.

This is my favourite bar in Reykjavik. The staff are highly knowledgeable and friendly. It's homely and warm with a great space that doesn't feel crowded when it's busy. The Icelandic beer and gin is wonderful. If I lived here this would be my local.

The best local bar in downtown. Staff was friendly and fun. Drinks were great! People coming to the bar were friendly and just wanted to socialize. I went to the bar 3/6 nights while I stayed in Reykjavik, Gin was the drink of choice and I loved the Rose Gin.

My husband and I stopped in here by chance as we were walking back to our hotel. I saw "gin bar" and was interested. They had happy hour going on so we skipped the gin and stuck with the wine and beer. The place has separate rooms that have tables and chairs for people to sit. It was very cozy and the place was quite busy for it being a Thursday night.

Wife and I visited Kaldi after reading good reviews. Very nice selection of craft beers and gins. I enjoyed the Kaldi IPA my wife tried an icelandic gin. Certainly seemed a popular bar with quite a fashionable crowd in general. The main barman was very friendly and allowed us to open a tab. Prices are high but as in life in general you get what you pay for.

We were first here in November 2019 and had great drinks. What's special about this place, is that they have a great selection of beers (some of which are brewed by Kaldi) and gins from around the world. It has a great atmosphere and impeccable design. We like sitting at the bar.

We were extremely happy that we could still sit at the bar as the COVID restrictions have recently been loosened in Iceland. Despite the obvious impacts of COVID, the quality of the drinks were just as we remembered. They had a nice happy hour which covers beers and wine.

The serving staff are very friendly. We highly recommend this place, but make sure you don't take our barstools!
