In the daytime you can walk right past Drone and not even notice that it’s there. Most of all it looks like an empty shop with filthy windows. Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights that changes. Well, the windows are still dirty, but the inside comes alive with light, people and music.
The downstairs bar is sparsely lit, mostly around the bar and the DJ area and by panels with coloured lights in the bar desks along the walls. There’s a small dance floor, and smoking is allowed. Upstairs there are chairs and tables and no smoking.
There is nothing posh about Drone. It’s dirty, dusty, all painted black, and I have to warn you about the toilets. They are very rock ‘n’ roll: completely battered, unisex and no locks on the doors. So far that hasn’t kept me away from Drone, though.
Drone is a rock bar, and they play all sorts of rock and alternative music. It’s a mix of DJs and bands, admission is free, and prices are acceptable: beer about 25 kr., cocktails 60-90 kr.
Thursday is live music day; it is a good place to check out new bands, both local but also small and relatively unknown bands from abroad, and usually there’s no admission fee.
