Most known for its representation in the film 101 Reykjavik, and as Damon Albarn’s hangout place back in the days, this most famous bar in Iceland is a popular destination for the artsy and university crowd. This cosy bar/dance club plays the newest electro-house indie music, and sometimes with a mixture of classic oldies in between – but this largely depends on the DJ of the evening.

The place itself is divided into three sectors. On the ground floor there is a dancing area and a bar and on the second floor there is a sitting lounge. From Sunday to Wednesday this is more of a café, but on Thursday through Saturday the volume rises and this becomes one of the hottest bars in Reykjavík.
