I really like it here, the chill atmosphere, great service and just a few yards from ’Den blå steinen’ in Bergen city centre. The staff always has a great story about beer or breweries when you ask for it, and when I don’t know what beer I need, they’re always spot on when recommending me one.
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.
Located on the bottom of "Torgallmenningen" this is a easy-to find (not that the ratebeer map is a good friend here). The first floor, where you enter, is decorated with classic chesterfield furniture. If you can get a seat this can be a nice place to watch football (they have two big TV’s) The staff is really polite, knowledgeable and helpful. Have yet not tried the food there, but the pub is connected to the resturant "Dickens" where they have quite eatable food. The prices are also quite alright (keep in mind this is Norway) A nice place to discover some rarities (as I recently have) and well worth a visit if you are in Bergen.

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.
The girl behind the bar was very service minded. The music was to loud, we sat in the corner with the speaker. Have been here before and will be back :)

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.
A centrally located bar in English Chesterfield style with a good bootle selection of world beers and Nøgne Ø, Ægir and Beer Here on tap when I was here today. After a few suggestions of his own, the bar keeper took an interest in the beer-food match of the Lervig Winter Ale that I ordered to match an entercote that I ate next door. Worked splendidly, by the way. Kontoret has an agreement with a restaurant (Nye Dickens) next door, and you can get your food in the restaurant, and get beer from Kontoret and eat where you like.
Nice place with good food and okay beer selection. They also have a good whisky selection for those who appreciate that. The prices are quite stiff, which I guess isn’t unrelated to the place’s "old man" clientell.
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).
I got an English pub feeling here. Dark, wooden interior which gives a sense of quality. I only had one beer, "Ægir Kontoret" (My main reason to visit) Not the best from Ægir, but another tick! Service minded staff. (Visited September 14th 2013)
