Location! Location! Location! – well…
Bar Robinet is a well-established bar with many years of success serving up a wide range of creative drinks to a niche crowd. It’s a tiny bar located in a spot that can hardly be called a thoroughfare.
Robinet is different every single time I visit as it is so small and intimate that the atmosphere is more a factor of the groups of people in the house than of the bar itself. On any given evening you might find yourself amongst bespectacled intellectuals, shallow party-goers, groups of teachers, artists and actors or midget fetishists. Who knows? But the cramped quarters will do their best to make sure you end up among friends.
I visited with two of my own friends and we quickly found ourselves in an enjoyable conversation with two teachers. The music was pleasant, the light from the lamps above bathed us in warm, ruddy light. Adding to the ambient air was the “drink of the day”, an Aquavit Sour (only NOK 76!) which I nursed while enjoying our chat.
Come early if you’re preoccupied with securing your own table or show up later and force yourself to mingle between the tables or by the bar. Robinet shares the same charm as Bar Boca in that it gets people to socialize together.
