PARKTEATRET in Oslo, 15 June 2012
I was in Oslo for the weekend, arriving on Friday, and my friend Karin took me out to a few bars in the more stylish end of Oslo. Part of the Harry Hole tour (although I don’t think Harry ever drank here!!)
This was a really good one which was an old theatre overlooking a park, hence the name. I really loved the modernist decor with the chairs, banque upholstery and light fittings etc all having a very Bauhaus feel, but not too hard edged. There was a little Japanese or some kind of art deco flavour in there too.
It was a very cool bar.
I should also point out that these pics were probably taken about 11.30pm at night!! Which was a complete novelty and it totally throws out your sense of time and appropriateness! Luckily it did get dark eventually, and I reckon I was home by 2am…
I don’t remember how much NOK it was for a pint…. I was trying not to think too much about it, but if you ever go to Norway…..watch out!
