Hotel Bristol’s famous
hot chocolate


Sweet and creamy, with a hint of vanilla ... and lots of real chocolate!

Classy and historic Hotel Bristol in Oslo is famous for its tasty hot chocolate, which many people say is the best in town.

Bring a friend, or a book, and relax in the stylish library bar, where you can often glimpse a famous author or two.


We managed to get our hands on Bristol's magic recipe, so that you can recreate the perfect moment of kos at home, too.

It's easy to make and perfect for chilly nights.

Carefully heat up the milk, cream, and vanilla bean in a pot. When the mixture is warm, add the chocolate and stir until it's completely melted. Strain and serve with lightly whipped cream.

The Bristol's afternoon tea is also highly recommended. Delicious sandwiches, warm scones, petit fours, and a pot of tea. Yes please!

You can of course have hot chocolate served instead of tea if you like.

The Bristol is one of Norway's most exclusive hotels, located in the city centre. 

If you visit in November or December, it's just a short walk away from one of Norway's biggest Christmas markets, and many other wonderful sites and experiences.

Oslo is home to Michelin-starred restaurants, as well as delicious street food and countless cosy cafés.
