Visited May 2016. A nice hole in the wall (or basement) type of place with good Icelandic selection (if not great), a 5 glass sampler for 2400 ISK, good service, limited food. A decent place on the Reykjavik pub cralw circuit.

Ace bar with a true chilled style. Great choice of 10 local ales on tap with a few guest beers to boot. Would recommend the 5x170ml flight for 2400isk. Staff really chatty and knowledgeable. Could have stayed all night but the good lady was fed up with my beergeek chat.

I was expecting a lot from the Micro Bar, and have to say I was a little disappointed. The tap selction focused on some of Icelands smaller breweries. There were plenty from Gædingur, a couple from Ölvisolt, one from Kaldi and one from Skaldi. I’d already tried most of these in bottles from Vinbudin so there wan’t much to choose from. I had a flick through the bottle list as was surprised not to see any Icelandic offerings. The prices were expensive as you would expect from this type of bar in Iceland. They do have a happy hour when one beer is discounted. It’s worth getting the AppyHour app for details of all of Reykvavik’s happy hours. I did love the ambiance of the bar, so it was a shame the beers weren’t there to hold my interest.

Best bar you’ll find in Reykjavik. Shooted Steini a little text on FB before visiting. Still had a Westvleteren and a St Lamvinus I brought over to share. Steini himself is one of the friendliest, finest bartenders you’ll find. Service was very quick, informative and correct. Two good recommendations on the IPA’s as well. The bar itself is lovely, with a nice mix of locals and foreigners. The selection was focused on Icelandic craft, and I must say, they surprised me. Value is ok, but conform the Iceland standars (10 taster flight at 4800SIK I think). Overall a very cool bar, my kinda bar, and it was too bad I couldn’t hang out any longer! Hopefully next time! See you soon in Belgium, Steini!

Returned here two years after last visit, they still have pretty much the same taplist as far I remember. The bottle offerings are more diverse now, presumably due to the opening of the Mikkeller and Friends in town. Still probably the best place in town. Old Review: Weird place in a hotel lobby, very small and always crowded so nowhere to sit. The taps are mostly from the brewery which shares an owner and don’t seem to rotate much. Great bottle menu if you like Mikkeller, probably even better than Mikkellerbar! Disappointed by the lack of Icelandic craft on tap and bottle.

When I was there, unfortunately they had a tap takeover by a British brewery. But still lots of good local stuff in bottles. Typically all Icelandic taps apparently. Lacking a bit in atmosphere as it is in a corner of a hotel lobby. Service is fast friendly and helpful. Definitely worth a visit.

Nice ambiance, small cozy place, 10 taps and good bottle selection. Lots of local beers and also in-house brews. Samplers available. Good service, nice people behind the counter.
