The main bar at Oslo's beautiful Amerikalinjen boutique hotel, Pier 42 is named after the NYC landmark where many Scandinavians first set foot on American soil. The drinks programme, managed by award-winning bartender Adrián Michalčík, similarly explores the connections and contrasts that exist between Norway and the US, so each cocktail has a strong backstory inspired by major historical events, museums, sports, fashion or landmarks in either or both countries, such as the Northern Lights, Statue of Liberty, Cross-Country Skiing and more. The ambience of the modern but comfortable lobby bar is relaxed but beautiful, with a polished wood and glass back bar and black-and-gold constellation light fixtures casting a warm glow over the high stools. A welcoming space for international visitors seeking a little Scandinavian hospitality. No reservations.
