“Excellent place for a snack or late night drink”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Located at the Radisson Polar Hotel Spitsbergen, it welcomes not only hotel guests, but also Longyearbyen locals, as they gather there on Monday nights for playing Quiz games.
It gives a different atmosphere to the hotel's bar, and together with extremely nice and helpfull staff, it is definitively a place to spend some time prior to going back to your hotel room.

“Ok place at the Radisson.”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

Ok food, the Pizza was good, the chicken burger not so much.
Would love if they had a regular cheeseburger.
Nice beers and good prices.

“Warming and nice...”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

I have been here for a couple of days and always very well treated, the staff is perfect no complains at all. The beer selection is ok for a remote place, also the food was awesome, the Barentz burger is pretty good. Is not that expensive considering that you are in Norway.

“The northernmost bar in the world”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

Fantastic pub, just inside of the Radisson Blu Polar hotel. Great selection of Norwegian beers on draft as well as various types of aquavit, a seemingly harmless looking Scandinavian liquor that takes no prisoners.

The bar has a lovely atmosphere; dark decor but subtly lit to make it feel warm and inviting, contrasting with the Arctic winter and polar night outside.

The food menu is perfect for casual dining; pizzas, pasta and burgers. Judging by the number of burgers coming out to diners - many of whom are locals - they must be pretty good (the burgers, as well as the locals). There is a also a series of daily specials, listed on a board for the following seven days. These are hearty, filling meals at a rather attractive price; today's was pasta carbonara for NOK99 (approx £10/EUR12) - it was a huge bowl of tagliatelle with a thick, sticky cream sauce and loads of crispy pieces of cooked ham, topped off with lashings of freshly chopped parsley and parmesan. It tasted fab and was very good value.

The staff are very friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable, particularly on music. They have an incredible music library playing, with each of the bar staff having their own preferences - one day it can be electronica, another US alt rock, another the rat pack. Perhaps the best has to be Odd's choice of music that encompasses Queens of the Stone Age, Echo and the Bunnymen, Pearl Jam, Interpol and the Stone Roses. The man is a walking jukebox of cool tunes.

If you're in Longyearbyen and not staying at the Radisson, check out Barentz. Cooler than Mr Cool McCool on a cold day. This is the northernmost bar in the world which is so cool, it's colder than the weather outside.

“Daily lunch/dinner with good price-quality”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

Barentz is a pub just in the end of the downtown next to the up-market Radisson hotel. It serves daily lunch/dinner from 11 am to 8 pm with 99 NOK, i.e about 12 EUR / 15 USD. This is a fair price in Longyearbyen. The quality for that price is right. Some of the barmen know many entertaining tricks such as throwing bottles, glasses etc in the air - and catchin them as well.
