Even if recently opened in Oslo, the Crossroads club offers a timeless music in a timeless bistro/pub surroundings right at the beginning of the famous party area in Oslo, Grünerløkka. The main focus of the bar is on blues music and everything derived from it, especially the cozy atmosphere suggested by the rhythms pouring from the speakers.
If you manage to make it there for a live event on Thursdays or Saturdays, the music would be performed on the stage in the background and you might get lucky to see quite some talented blues artists, local or international.
It’s said that one of the best local cooks – Even Christiansen -prepares the dishes – and I personally find it more reliable to eat in a place with a very limited choice of food. I would know each is treated with more care. The menu is an interesting blend of meat dishes (burgers, t-bone, ribs) next to some surprising southern inspired spices or side-dishes. But what I can recommend you is the chocolate burger server for dessert. That was one amazing experience for my taste buds and I’m drooling again at the thought of it.
Don’t hesitate to come in, regardless if you’re a blues enthusiast or not. It will take a lot of effort not to have a good time at this club. But watch out that it is closed on Mondays.
