Best Bar to End the Night
Laugavegur 22, 101 Reykjavík
No need to debate this one. Kiki received a unanimous vote on the best bar to end the night. Being the go-to queer club in Reykjavík, everyone is welcome for a drink and a dance. The only ask is that you’re respectful of the space. Kiki has multiple levels for when you need to dance the night away or sit down for a soul bearing chat with someone. “There’s nothing but happiness at Kiki,” a panellist chimes in, reminiscing about last Saturday night. As another panellist added: “It’s hands down the best place to end the night. You dance the alcohol away!”

Ah, Ölstofan, the introvert’s drinking hole. If you’re ever in town late at night and aren’t in the mood for a full-on dance extravaganza, Ölstofan is the place to be. It’s the perfect place if you want some time away from all the ruckus and need a nice, long chat with a good friend. “It’s the only place where you can sit and talk until 5:00,” said a panellist.
