Centrally located and beer-focused, so certainly worthy of a visit, but I found the atmosphere cramped and stuffy when it was packed on a Saturday night, with a lot of people wearing perfume and cologne. Bartenders are nice and knowledgeable but I think the operation was suffering. Some of the bottles seemed old, and many on the back shelf seemed to have been there for a long time collecting dust. The glassware was almost all dirty and smudged which didn’t make me want to stick around. And of the 8 or so taps, only 1 was something that was un-spiced, in good shape and interesting. This is the current top spot for Reykjavik on Ratebeer, but I put 73, K Bar and Hlemmur Square above Micro Bar for most-enjoyed spots in town. YMMV.

I came here on my first stop of my Icelandic beer tour and wasn’t disappointed. They had eight taps of Icelandic beer, though two were unfortunately out. The bartender, Steiinn, was so nice, helpful, and knowledgeable. I couldn’t have asked any more from an Icelandic beer bar.

In any European city this selection of beers would be special. In Iceland, 66 degrees north of the equator and on the way to nowhere, and with alcohol taxed into the next century it is absolutely extraordinary. Good Icelandic representation, good information, best place in the nation. (So far.) Part of but unrelated to the City Center Hotel, for those who don’t want a long walk home.

Didn’t even realize this place was in my hotel lobby when I booked, but that’s awfully convenient. Decent hotel as well, but the tap water in the room is the most sulfuric I’ve ever witnessed, it’s like a rotten egg bomb every time I showered or ran the faucet. Tap water in the Micro Bar was fine. Anyway, talked at length to both bartenders on a very slow night (I was the only one there for ~2 hours), great guys. Tried 3 of the Gaedingur brews (since the same guy owns both places) and a few sips of several other things. Lots of Mikkeller, Evil Twin, and To Ol in bottles, and even Westy 8 and 12 (at around $40/bottle, though). Probably not the best place in town to try a lot of Icelandic beer, but definitely worth a visit.

Craft beers have not caught on in Iceland like elsewhere in the Nordic world. This bar seems to be the only game in town. Nice selection of Icelandic micro brew on tap plus many bottles from brew dog and mikkeler.

Great place, nice selection and the most friendly staff. And by all means the best place to meet beer loving locals. Good selection of Icelandic brews, a large list of Mikkeller, Brewdog and To Øl, and a balanced list of others. Had a brilliant time there sharing a few beers.
Would recomment this place!

This was the one bar that everyone recommended we visit. We did so on our first day. We were not disappointed. Steinn our bartender was very helpful. He even set-up a trip to a brewery in Northern Iceland. The selection was excellent. They cater to local brewers across the country and not as much to the larger brewers like Viking Vilifell. He was also available to describe the brewery and the type of beer. This is a highly recommended visit to enjoy the beers of Iceland.

Definitely the best place in Iceland. However, the prices were astronomical. $35 for a Westy 8 and $45 for a 12. I got a "cheap" local draft for $7.50. Huge selection though. So if you want to drink, go here.

The only, and best place for micro-beer in Iceland. Placed in the breakfast-area of a Hotel, and have to close early (23-00ish). Flying dog, loads og Mikkeller and some nice local craftbeers. Interesting place. Friendly staff.
