Definitly not our last visit

Went to Himkok for my friends birthday. Great drinks made by skilled bartenders. We got to learn about destillation and how gin is made. The atmosphere is dark and nice. We will come back!

Best cocktails ever 🍹
Jun 2020 • Couples
It was so much fun visiting this place. First off all its really hidden place so when you visiting it its feels like you are member of secret club or something. Atmosphere is amazing and the stuff is really professional and nice. And of course the cocktails... yeah the peach one called Bergen is the best cocktail I ever tested (I like the others as well but this one was amazing).Worth visiting 🍹

Can see why it’s in the top 10.....
Feb 2020 • Couples
We were recommended this place after we’d been for dinner. From the outside it doesn’t look much and you have to ring a doorbell to get in. It has a table service and we got the last table! It was a great atmosphere and they served great cocktails. We tried a few and all were beautiful. The staff were so helpful and kind. It has such a good buzz and the table service meant you weren’t standing at the bar desperate to get served.

It was a great place to end the evening!

Just fantastic!

The best place in town for a drink/cocktail.
High quality service and drinks. You can also tell the bartender what kind of drinks/taste you like, and they will make you one just as you like it.

Unique cocktails, great service
Jan 2020 • Couples
We arrived about 10mins after opening time on Saturday. I was worried it would be dead. I was wrong, within 20mins the place was full and it has a strict no standing policy and we saw a number of people turned away. The no standing policy makes for a very chilled atmosphere as the numbers are limited, but it also allows them to provide great service and the drinks were fantastic. Friendly and knowledgable staff whose multitasking abilities where impressive. A great place to go with your girlfriend or for a catch up with a small group of friends, I’m sure it gets more lively at night (I was there at 3pm) so maybe read this as an ‘afternoon review’. Gets a solid thumbs up from me as a great place to chill with a unique cocktail list.

Date nightmare
Dec 2019
Cocktails ranging from excellent to no more than mediocre. Most of them with the now standard and boring hipster combination of elderberry juice, smoke taste and dried citrus decoration....so ....creative and so unique. What sett this place apart from the other cocktail bars in the area is the sheer rudeness and arrogance of the staff. One have to bear in mind that they aren’t simply bartenders… this is mixology and chemistry….they really are artist, nay, scientists! My mistake this evening was to bring a tinder date. She failed to appreciate the uniqueness of the place and the proper etiquette for addressing the artists behind the bar. The silly girl rushed to the bar and ordered a fruity drink not found on the menu and was of course berated and treated with due scorn and contempt. The tinder date got of to the worst off starts, my mistake, I wont make it twice.

Great hidden quiet place for a drink
Dec 2019 • Couples
Found this online staying down the road at the Clarion Hub Hotel. If you are not looking, you will miss it, there is just a small “H” on the wall outside and then you walk in through a curtain to a Victorian, Willie Wonka style bar dimly lit with plush leather high chairs and tables to sit at.

The menu gives plenty of unique inspired Nordic cocktails made largely from in the premise distilled gin, vodka and aquavit, plus some others. They will also whip up any other cocktail you wish for from the lab coat-donned mixologists!

A very groovy vibe and not to be missed, thoroughly enjoyed it!

Well worth a visit...
Dec 2019 • Friends
Definitely worth popping in for a drink. It gets busy, so would recommend booking. We booked a table in the ground floor bar. Service was great, bar tenders exceptional and the drink list impressive - cocktails were all locally inspired.
Our first round was delicious but I think we all chose wrong for our second round.
Reasonably priced for one of the 30 best bars in the world.
P.s the main entrance is hard to find. It’s just off the main road and doesn’t have any obvious signage other than a H on the wall.

Big up terrible down
Dec 2019 • Couples
Polite friendly service minded staff and good drinks just up until my wife informed the bartender that one drink tasted child’s soda not an adults drink..... what a mistake!!! Suddenly smiles were off, my wife was lectured from the bartender that it was the way it was supposed to be and quite frankly he got offended!

Ok - professional pride is one thing but arrogance is another. He should have offered her something else - instead the bill came to our table without us asking for it and the staff got ready to let us leave.

Well thank you for ruining a perfect evening of dining with friends followed by some drinks at Himkok. In the past I have spent many evenings here but what I experienced this time was a staff that has become cooler than the place they work and they have a flair of arrogance that signals that they are better than you.

They still serve good drinks - but that does not mean they can elevate themselves to be better than everybody else. They need to remember that the customer is always right.

Great speakeasy feel
Nov 2019 • Friends
I loved the speakeasy-meets-mad-scientist vibe of this bar. The atmosphere was easy and relaxed. The bartenders were magical! Not only were they great at concocting drinks based on my alcohol preferences, they are extremely friendly and fun to talk to. One of the few places that I found welcoming and friendly in Oslo. I had such a blast here, would love to go back. Highly recommend!
