Microbar – https://www.facebook.com/MicroBarIceland/
If you are a fan of craft beer then get down to Microbar in downtown Reykjavik for a wide choice of lager and ales. Happy hour between 4-7 where two beers are reduced to 800krona. That with a large glass of wine was around 1.800 krona.
Relaxed atmosphere at Microbar with seating at the bar, on high stools, tables or sofas – we just chilled out and played cards!
Close to the harbour is Slippbarinn, Reykjavik’s first cocktail bar and a more fancier bar than others I visited. Happy hour was from 5-7 and included beers on tap at 700kr and cocktails at 1,100kr.
Slippbarinn was lovely as a venue but was the only time I experienced rude service in Iceland which is a shame!
One of the more popular bars in Reykjavik with both tourists and locals is Kaffibarrin, easily spotted with its tube stop sign outside. Playing live music and DJs on a regular basis, it was a pretty trendy bar.
A glass of wine and gin and tonic was around 2,400kr and it was a pretty chilled atmosphere – apparently it gets more lively after 1am.

Definitely one of the more random bars i visited in Reykjavik – tropical themed with pictures of fish on the bar, flamingo pictures and tiki girls. While the decor may be cheesy, the place / staff are not. There was a live singer when we arrived on Saturday and the music afterwards was a real mish match that I actually cannot describe! Definitely quirky and I get the feeling ever changing…
I also heard great things about Hurra from some of the locals – we visited a little early on a Saturday and it was pretty empty but wish we had tried it mid-week!
