A nice little bar connected to the bigger restaurant "Dickens" around the corner. Kontoret (meaning "The Office") is a classic library-style pub, with heavy wooden furniture and mahogany-oak-and-brass style interiors. Ok atmosphere which is occasionally thwarted because of the oversized TVs showing soccer games from time to time, which is annoying for anyone not interested and clashing with the general majestic atmosphere of the pub. This aside, the bar staff is very friendly and forthcoming, and is knowledgeable about their selection. Kontoret has all the staples from Nøgne Ø and Haandbryggeriet, as well as some Ægir on tap and bottles. A decent bottle range fills one of the shelf section, mostly well-known stuff from Vinmonopolet but also some rarities like BrewDog’s Sink the Bismarck - priced in the horrid Norwegian tradition, of course. Kontoret also boasts a large collection of whisky and cognacs. I never had the food there, so I can’t be the judge of that but it’s probably decent enough. An ok place to drop by for a quick beer due to an extremely central location next to Hotel Norge in the very locus of Bergen. Worth checking out if you can avoid the soccer nights.

Library style bar with dark woods, a strong list of single malts, lots of Nøgne Ø beers and almost as many from Haandbryggeriet. Food in the Dickens restaurant than makes up the rest of the building. Spoiled only by having two large TV screens imposing two guys’ football preferences on fifteen disinterested others. I agree with the comments about knowledgeable staff. New guy on his first day could say something sensible about most of the micros. Good selection for Norway.

Charming, quite and cozy small bar central located in Bergen, visited a calm Tuesday afternoon in June. Reminds me a bit of a British gentlemen club (not thinking of a go-go bar!). 52 bottles and 3 taps is a great selection compared with most other Norwegian bars. The friendly waitress had a surprisingly good knowledge of what see served. Could not ask for much more.

Comfortable place to visit right in the center of Bergen. Access to some of the best Norwegian bottled beers from Nøgne Ø, Atna and Haandbryggeriet (I had bottles of Norwegian Wood and Dark Force). Average range of bottles from other countries and good range of Whisky to choose from. Friendly barman who always asks if you want your beer chilled or temperated. Attracts a wide mix of people (in good company on 14.11.2007).

NIce, quiet bar in old-fashioned, dark style with a library look. Red leather sofas and bar stools. The bar has recently decided to offer a good beer and whiskey selection to stand out from the competition. The result is a decent beer selection with three Nøgne Ø, good UK, Belgian, and German selection. The barman is friendly, talkative, and interested in beer. One of the best places in Bergen to have a beer.

It’s possible to persuade the barman to feed you in the bar, if you claim to love beer.
