Syng: If you love to sing karoke, Syng is the great place for you. Located along the Akerselva, you can enjoy the promenade and the great weather. They offer several different locals where you and your friends can sing karaoke and have fun in private rooms! Their Buddha Room is great to rent if you have birthday or other special occasions! Looking for a Sing-along cinema? Every Wednesday at 7 pm they show karaoke movies in their own cinema and the entrance is completely free!

Biergarten St Pauli is a cozy, bohemian styled outdoor garden where you can enjoy a beer, coffee or a snack. Located along the beautiful river promenade, Akerselva. Take the tram to Birkelunden and just walk to the river. It is actually located in the same building as the institution Paulus Sykehjem, a home for elderly users.
It’s a great thing to place a bar for locals next to an institution for people with dementia. Here their related family can bring them and have some fun together. It is also great for locals having a walk along the river promenade. Open for everyone, 7 days a week, open until late – as long as the weather is good.
Here you can visit their Facebook site.
Blå (blue)- another cozy outdoor bar along the river side, but a bit longer down – near Vulkan, Mathallen (Food market). Blue is not only about concerts and disco. In the summer months you can enjoy a beer on their great outdoor seating, and enjoy the views of the river and green trees. The area is known as the home of local artists and they have decorated the area – it’s the individual artists’ design. Here you definitely don’t feel that you are in the middle of Oslo – but somewhere else. Maybe that’s why one of the signs outside say “Ingensteds” (“Nowhere”). On Sunday evenings you can enjoy free concert with Frank Znort Orchestra (FZQ), a big band that has more than 20 members and all kinds of music and instruments. The entrance is free! They have one concert at 4pm and one a 8:30pm. Sunday night is open until late (3am).

Brygg Oslo: A new 2-storey bar in Storgata with coffee shop department and barista at the entrance. On the right hand side you will find a beer bar with more than 30 different beers to choose from. On the 2nd floor you will find a wine and cocktail bar. Here you can also play ping pong and have fun with your friends. If you are hungry you can try some local pop-in food trucks that are also located on the 2nd floor. It could be cool restaurants that hire the space for a limited time serving Asian or Mexican food, melted cheese, hamburgers – yeah, all kind of concepts. One of the coolest things you can do here is to brew your own beer! The coolest Christmas Gifts this year? Good idea, but you need to book appointment early! Brygg is open until 3am every day. A cozy atmosphere, lots of tables and chairs and not too loud music – suits young as old people.
