The decor at Ryes could be favorably described as a mélange of late 50s Americana memorabilia. A less favorable description might include the expression “kitsch-explosion.” Really this depends on your affinity for early rock ‘n roll. The walls are covered with license plates and period posters. There are hanging lights and plastic palm trees. The bartenders are tatooed and hip, and depending on the time of day – Chuck Berry, Elvis, and fats domino are blasting from the dj booth.
Ryes is a bar / diner in the cool Grünerløkka neighborhood. I’m told that the milkshakes are quite good, that the burgers are solid, and that ’3 beers for NOK 100 happy hour’ is super popular. However, I have to confess that I don’t think I’ve ever been here before midnight. Open until 3:30 on most nights, Ryes is where I head for a fun late night of cheesy rock ‘n roll dancing. Yes it can be overly crowded with a line out the door, but there is something about the energy of the place. And when The Coaster’s “Yakety Yak” starts playing… don’t look back!
