The Reykjavík Grapevine is proud to present: The Best Of Reykjavík 2016! Earlier this summer we published our Best Of magazine to help you, our beloved readers, find the very best places this little city has to offer. You can use the info to plan your schedule, or even as a fun experiment to see how your tastes align with those of ours.
Best bar to go dancing
Kiki Queer Bar takes this award for the third-year running, and for good reason. Their pop ‘n’ classics policy is perfect for those who like to sing along to every track they hear. Being the city’s only queer club, Kiki is also the place where people really let loose. “Everyone at Kiki dances like someone just released a confetti bomb,” one of our panelists noted. The atmosphere at Kiki is inclusive, so whether you’re in the mood or not, you’ll probably end up joining the party.
B5 is the closest thing to a Miami nightclub you’ll find in Reykjavík (okay, it’s not that close). This place is made for grinding. You’ll find all the hits here, from today’s top 40 to occasional tracks from the last millennium.
Classic café by day, Reykjavík go-to hip hop bar by night, Prikið will throw a little sexual bravado into your evening (‘cause everyone knows the best way to make people feel sexy is some hip hop and R’n’B). Come in and start bouncing!
