Bugge, Caffeteater, Villa Paradiso: "Evening in Grünerløkka" Oslo Nightlife Tip by anaiis

Oslo Nightlife: 153 reviews and 118 photos

Grünerløkka is Oslos most vivid place. In the summer, there is plenty of cafes where you can enjoy sitting outdoors, talking to friends and making new ones. There are many parks to hang around and it is a custom to prepare food using grills (you buy them in the supermarket), but that is not particularly environment friendly. You will find a kino and a theatre and often some jazz concerts in the area. Definitely worth visiting, even in the winter, when you squeeze inside some warmer place. Here, the feeling is cozier, the drinks are colder and they seem to be open longer. Place to chill out. Daytime offers second hand clothes stores, antique markets (Saturdays and Sundays), very decent tea shop and all kinds of odd boutiques. Are you out of ideas where to go, just drop by.

Dress Code: Super casual is Norwegian way! However, sometimes Norwegians, unexpectedly, dress up. Hard to tell, but Grünerløkka is very relaxed.
