Kaldi Bar

This is a great spot to drink in the town centre with a lovely outside seating area. They specialise in Icelandic unfiltered Kaldi beer on tap and have a good gin and tonic selection, perfect for summertime sipping. Go early as this place fills up fast.

Pablo Discobar

Apart from having a brilliant name, Pablo Discobar does great cocktails too. The bar is bedecked with Latin American-themed touches – right down to the Day of the Dead sink in the toilet. Disco lights bring added party atmosphere, so head down for a good time.

Port 9

Oenophiles will love this wine bar with its sleek interiors and velvety green banquets. The menu is short and sophisticated and there are some delicious snacking options to make sure you don’t go hungry.

Quest Hair, Beer and Whisky Saloon

A hairdressing salon is as good a place to have a drink as anywhere. Blow dries by day, bar by night, Quest Hair, Beer and Whisky Saloon becomes a cosy spot to sip whisky and beer once the sun sets. The drinks selection is second to none and the decor is charmingly shabby chic.

Lebowski Bar

The name is a bit of a give away – this bar is full of all things related to The Big Lebowski (the film starring Jeff Bridges). Its colourful interior and quirky drinks menu make this a cheesy but fun night out. Expect to hear lots of retro music and dance alongside local merrymakers.

Kiki Queer Bar

If you’re looking for a good boogie then this bar is the place to be; it’s pop songs and chart hits all night long. Hit the dance floor with fabulously dressed drag queens and shimmy in a swirl of rainbow colours and sequins.

Prikid

Prikid is a restaurant by day and bar by night. It’s a hotspot for local DJs so if you’re serious about the music scene then it’s the place to be. This is not a place to dress up for – just bring the moves and you’re good to go.

Hurra

Hurra hosts lots of live music and is an excellent place to discover new talent. Popular among locals, plenty of up-and-coming bands play here, offering a welcome change from DJ sets.

Kaffibarinn

Kaffibarinn is one of the oldest bars in the city, but that doesn’t make it any less popular among the party set – probably in part because it used to be co-owned by British rock legend Damon Albarn (of Blur fame). Up your cool points and head there for a late-night dance off.
