This is a spot alright. In short, Gurken Gurken Gurken Gurken (GGGG) is a hole in the wall bar in the middle of a residential street in the up-and-coming Tøyen area. It’s a totally non-serious (and a little strange) bar run by the people who brought you Brutus (a totally serious and not strange wine and tapas bar just a couple of doors down the street).
This spot is not where you would classically go out for a drink, but if you’re up for a different experience and are in the company of some quirky friends, I’d definitely recommend stopping for a cocktail or shot here and combine it with an evening at Brutus tapas wine bar (right next door — check out my article).
The interior is decked out in retro-style items – every inch is covered with a pink lighting that makes everything look a little bit psychedelic! You can listen to old rock playing on vinyl whilst choosing between chilli or pickles on your late-night chicken wings.
They specialise in natural ciders and Pina Colada Slushies! A true experience to be had in Oslo!
