Happy hour + live music nightly = fun times! One might call this a dive bar, but it's a dive bar with culture and class. A good place to sit, drink and chat with friends.

Popped into this basement bar during a snow storm and stayed much longer than we had planned to. The Viking Christmas beer was really tasty and the atmosphere with small tables filled with locals and tourists of all ages was very welcoming. It reminded us of bars in NYC's East Village before it became a gentrified tourist trap. We went... More

The soups we had were amazingly flavorful and in the fresh tasting brown bread bowls, was the perfect delicious and warm meal for a cold day. Highly recommend!

So my better half isn't much of a drinker. I had to persuade her to go in for even a quick drink. We had so much fun bantering with the staff we didn't leave for about 3 hours and a few drinks later. We left with a discount voucher and I am pretty sure we will be back tomorrow.

If you can't make a whisky sour, then don't! Just say so. Stick to beer if you bother dropping by, this is not definitely not worth your cocktail money.

The day we stumbled in here was the day our lives changed - finally! A decent cappuccino! My girlfriend and I spent an awful lot of time in here (so much so the staff knew us and our orders!) but it was warranted - the staff are lovely,the cafe itself is nice and cosy,and the coffee is one of the...

We always loved coming to this place, but since a massive boom in tourism prices have doubled which is a real shame. Drinks and staff were lovely tho.

Popped into this bar for happy hour 16.00hrs to 19.00hrs, well over the hour, serve Viking beer 2 for 1 during this time. A snug bar that serves the purpose.
