The Danish Pub – When in Iceland – go Danish
A vibrant place on the Reykjavík social scene is Den Danske kro or The Danish Pub, a popular downtown venue with locals where they have happy hour and live music every night.
Den Danske kro serves a variety of beers, in addition to familiar names such as Tuborg and Carlsberg the Danish pub serves a selection of seasonal beers from both Denmark and Iceland. During the christmas months Den Danske kro is the home of the Tuborg christmas beer or „Julebryg“ which is a popular demand in Iceland during the darkest months.
The Danes have a special word to describe a cosy, friendly atmosphere – „hyggelig“ and that’s something the owners of the Danish pub have worked hard to create in this home from home within a pub. Check out the house within the pub – off – the – wall- design in its most literal sense!
Den Danske kro is a great place to hang out with friends, play some darts, watch sports, enjoy the occasional sun and watch the world go by on the outside terrace. We recommend you try a glass of the customary Gammel Dansk bitters, a traditional Danish schnapps.
