Lekter’n is a bar and restaurant that really knows how to make the most of Oslo’s long summer evenings. The action takes place on a converted barge alongside the trendy, if a little touristy Aker Brygge waterfront strip (check the Aker Brygge article here), with fantastic views over the Oslo fjord and fortress.
Lekter’n is not exactly a ‘hidden’ spot, but sometimes when you find yourself in a place like Aker Brygge where you’re surrounded by bars, it’s handy to know which one to choose!
I like Lekter’n because most of the space is open-air and the lounge bar is decked out with comfy couches, sunbeds and beanbags under sailcloths.
DJs get the dancefloor going as the evening picks up, and Lekter’n encourages up-and-coming talent – a friend of mine sometimes steps up to the decks here. Lekter’n has friendly staff, good tunes and a great atmosphere, but it’s worth keeping in mind that it can be on the pricey side, like most places along Aker Brygge.
