A modern bar "sandwiched" between modern office buildings. Only two beers on tap, but Herslev Økologisk Juleøl was outstanding! We met the owner who is a beer, cognac and cigar enthusiast. We came for an early "night cap" but ended up staying there for nearly 3 hours. Many nice people among the regulars. (Visited November 23rd 2010)

Nice cousy bar in the heart of the city. But a litte bit hidden. So not to many tourists here. Good.
Ok beer selection.

Intimate, relaxed and cozy bar in the city centre. Not the widest selection of beer, but usually of excellent quality. Very nice whisky selection and friendly staff.

Nice and quiet place, a bit hidden. The owner knows his beers - the selection is small, but hand picked, both imports and Norwegian micros.

Tucked away in the centre of Oslo, lies Bar & Cigar. It’s a cozy, friendly place with some of the most interesting Norwegian beers in bottles, and every now and then there’s cask beer available. As usual in Norway, the beers are pricey, but at least they are good. The patio is a nice place to enjoy shadow on a hot afternoon, but there’s usually some skaters disturbing the peace.

Nice and friendly bar, hidden away in a small courtyard in an office area that is more or less emtpy off office hours. Once I found the bar, that wasn’t empty though. Modern interior with a small seating area by the entrance and the bar and a larger seating area one staircase up. There’s also a smoking room at the back, since this is also a cigar place. Not a huge selection of beer, but good quality. Nögne Ö IPA on tap and several beers from Nögne Ö and Haandbryggeriet in bottles. Some interesting imported beers as well. And a good cognac and whiskey selection. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Recommended.

Rather unusual place, in that the owner deliberately tries to make it a local, and to get returning guests to know each other. Very low-key place, quiet, good seating, outdoor serving in summer, plus a big heated place where you can smoke all year round. Staff is mostly owner plus good-looking young girls.
The focus is really on cognac, cigars, and beer, in that order. The beer selection is small and changing, but contains only good stuff. Typically has some standard Belgians (Duvel, Westmalle, ...), some Nøgne Ø (4-5 different ones), and now also Haandbryggeriet.
The staff is very pleasant, but not very knowledgeable on beer, except the owner, who is happy to discuss the subject.

Visited in July 2010.
A very relaxed place in central Oslo. Quite good selection of beers, mostly Norwegian. I drank Haandbryggeriet IPA.
The owner was very friendly and talkative. Worth a visit.

One of Oslos oldest beer (and whisky) bars that used to be one of the few places you could hope to find Nøgne Ø and HaandBryggeriet on bottle. There is still a decent selction of bottled beers and there is usually one good craft beer on tap. Unfortunately, the place has not kept up with the rapid development on the beer scene in Oslo, so the selection feels a bit limited compared to all the new beer pubs popping up around the city. It’s still worth a visit though, and it still is thee place for cigar smokers.
