The facade of Dattera til Hagen (Daughter of the Garden) in the multicultural Grønland borough is not particularly remarkable, and offers no hint about what lurks behind its plain white walls. But enter the arched walkway into this cafe/bar/club’s backyard, and you’ll be smacked in the eyeballs. Everything from the furniture to the walls to the artwork is psychedelically bright. It’s like a rainbow on LSD vomited all over the sunny courtyard, but in a good way.
Lunch, tapas and dinner are on offer at reasonable prices (the goat cheese with pickled pear and honey on country-style bread is delicious). At night Dattera til Hagen turns into a bar and club across its two storeys and backyard, hosting everything from DJs, festival after-parties, stand-up, improv and debates. The genres and themes are broad and eclectic, so keep an eye on the Dattera website and facebook for up-to-date event details. You can also rent out areas for private events.
