Besides great cocktails, what stands out about Bettola is its décor. To me it feels like a mix of Italy with a touch of Mad Men in the front room, and more of a Berlin vintage vibe in the back. But no matter how comfortable those couches might be, I still prefer to pull up a stool at the bar. That’s where the magic happens. There are few things I enjoy more than watching mixologists in action.
Bettola has both traditional and more experimental cocktails on the menu, and you’ll even find cocktails on tap! I usually pick one from the daily drink menu hanging on the wall, as they’re usually a little bit different, and if I’m lucky – a few kroner cheaper.
The bar is located next to the Italian restaurant Trattoria Popolare, and I like to combine a meal there, with an after dinner delight at Bettola. At such times, the espresso martini can do no wrong.
