Dining and nightlife in Tromsø

Tromsø is known for a lively nightlife with friendly locals and a range of restaurants specialising in the fresh ingredients of the region.

Bars and pubs

Tromsø locals are a social breed and spend endless hours in the cafés lining the main street, and visitors are expected to partake. As soon as the temperature reaches 53°F in summer, everyone moves outdoors. The number of bars per inhabitant is impressive, and Tromsø enjoys a nationwide reputation as an excellent party city. Tromsø's nightlife is loud, entertaining, varied and open to all.

In the southern part of the city, Ølhallen is the natural starting point for a pub crawl, especially because it closes at 6 pm. This is a good time to continue to Skarven, where all the locals go to enjoy the Mack brew as soon as there is a glimpse of sun. Continuing south, there are several alternatives, the daytime café Gründer turns into a bustling place at night.

Cafés

In the former butcher shop Aunegården the cakes are the most renowned items on the menu, but consider trying their bacalao too. De 4 Roser is a European-style café, with good coffee and a nice lunch menu, evening meals and a wide selection of drinks. For the bold, Flyt offers an extreme sports theme with frozen beer glasses and homemade burgers.

Restaurants

Numerous ambitious quality restaurants in Tromsø make use of the unique raw ingredients of the Arctic, but search for inspiration from the great French tradition or from the latest trends in international cooking. Tromsø's multi-cultural community, featuring more than 100 nationalities, does its very best to whet local palates, and there is no shortage of steak houses and pizza restaurants.
