Reviewed June 28, 2022 via mobile

Went searching for cocktails throughout town. Many said they did cocktails but when we looked at the menu they weren’t really cocktails just different gins and vodkas. But when we went to Milk they had an extensive list of cocktails and wow the girl behind...the bar knew what she was doing. Superb!! And a reasonable price too compared to beer and wine. I can recommend the Bahama Mama, Pina Colada, Cherry Mojito, and the Mai Tai but I’m sure they are all great. Unfortunately, or fortunately it’s our last night so can’t go back for more. Nice modern look and feel inside with a good view of the harbour where you can watch the comings and goings of boats. It opened at 6pm which seemed a little late but we’ll worth it.More

Giving this place a full score as they are not responsible for covid rules of fixed seating. Very nice coctails (ok Norwegian priced and "high end"), very attentive bartenders and a very well defined bar menu including many inhouse variants (recommend the mango (I asked...for some chilli in it), and the local Ice tea... Felt welcome, even if they prioritized the groups.More

Great place if you like cocktails, they have beers as well but not many brands. Good view looking into the pier or out towards the sea. I was there 2 times in my 3 days stay in Ålesund. Perfect to come here after a nice...dinner.More

We went to this bar on a very quiet Wednesday night in April. The place was empty; as we walked in, the bartender was clearly displeased to see a group of people walking in. When I finally managed to get a drink out of the...bartender, I realised that there was practically no alcohol in the Mango Daiquiri I'd just spent a small fortune on. It was basically a fruit shake. The bar itself has a fantastic location and looks great inside, but clearly the staff resent having to actually serve customers. It was so bad it was almost funny and an experience I will not forget for a long time.More

A magical little place for a nice cocktail. I've been here once before and this was one of those great reasons we wanted to go back to Ålesund. The place is not that big but it has a very good atmosphere there. Sitting watching the...boats come is just an experience. Nice bartenders and a tasty setting are amazing.More

A must if you are looking for somewhere modern and unusual in Ålesund. Situated at the harbour front, the quirky glass floor with lighting offers a unique view of sea life under the bar.

A favourite hang-out for many locals. Great ambiance and skilled bartenders make this an ideal spot to have a pre og post dinner drink.

Milk is the smartest bar we found is Alesund. It overlooks the harbour and if the sun is out, as it was when we visited, you also get to see a stunning sunset. There is a good selection of cocktails and wines, service was friendly...and efficient. Milk is a bit expensive (even by Norwegian standards) but you get what you pay for.More
