There are some really great bars in Reykjavik. Here’s a couple of recommendations if you want to avoid the main stream international bars you’ll find on any main street of a capital city.
I love a cold beer after a long day of sightseeing. Luckily Icelandics are really good a both brewing and drinking beer, so you can find some really nice places to hang and have a beer in Reykjavik.
I can personally recommend these three bars in Reykjavik:
Skúli Craft Bar
Located on a small plaza, which gives you the opportunity to sit outside and enjoy a lovely cold brew under the bar’s heating lamps. You can play a game of backgammon with your beer… and they have a food truck outside if you get hungry!
Location: Aðalstræti 9
Relaxed, cool and bit grungy – also serves as a café during the day.
Location: Hverfisgata 76
A small bar that also serves their own local brew: Kaldi. The vibe is very laidback – kinda like a modern tavern with a dimmed livingroom vibe and a piano instead of a pool table.
Location: Laugavegur 20B (just across from Kiki, which is a gay bar with a really colourful facade)
