Bars & Cafes
If it is rock music that gets you into the party mood, then head to the Kroa i Bø when in the village of Bø i Telemark. This happening pub has been rocking the nightlife here since 1970s, and has served as a major haunt for the students of nearby Telemark University College. However, the majority students crowd shouldn't deter you from enjoying the varied concerts and theme nights held at the club. In the past, the club has been host to some of the most stellar performances of legendary bands like Jaga Jazzist, Satyricon, Motorpsycho, DumDum Boys and several others. Managed excellently by a group of student volunteers, this is one club you should not miss out on if you love music.
Sharing its address with Restaurant Opsahlgården, Christians Kjeller is a basement bar frequented by music lovers. There are some great musical performances that take place here, mostly by local bands playing country and blues music. It's not just the music that attracts patrons, though; you can pair wines with something from the tapas menu, and steaks are also on offer.
Featuring live music for entertainment, and plenty of board games and pool tables to keep you occupied, it is no wonder that Glassmagasinet is a popular hangout in Horten. Here, you will find a few youngsters exchanging friendly banter over a game of pool and others lounging with a bottle of beer for company. On some nights, the bar hosts performances of local as well as international artists and bands to spice up the atmosphere of this easygoing joint.
