Why locals love it

This is a good place to start the evening as the beer and wine is fairly cheap (if there is such a thing in Iceland). The crowd is young and the atmosphere is quite calm and friendly. Sports are occasionally on screen and the chairs are comfy.

Why you should visit it

This place is positioned at the university campus and is therefore a little getaway from the central scene. As mentioned before the alcohol has a "european price" and the crowd are mostly university students in their early 20's.

Special tip

Tip for the sport fan: They show soccer on a big screen during game nights.

As a student, I visit this place alot. The food is probably the cheapest in the city. There are alot of events thrown in Stúdentakjallarinn (Student's Cellar) and you can definetely watch popular sport games there. It's really cosy and approachable for groups bigger than of 6. Show up early on the weekend, but on week days you can show up at 6 and still get a table easily.
