I find something new each time I go to Himkok  – a new bar, barber shop, live concert, pickled everything. Explore for yourself and you’ll find a cocktail bar, “tap tail” bar (i.e. spirits on tap), cider bar and maybe one more.

Himkok is the lively brainchild of the same folks behind Crow Bar. With Himkok, they’ve tapped into the future. There’s no shortage of brew bars in town, but Himkok (loosely “Homebrew” or “moonshine”) is the first place I’ve been where they distill their own spirits. And the people of Oslo are loving it. It’s teeming with people, live music, chatter, laughter and glasses clinking. It may be packed late on Friday and Saturday nights so you might spend a few minutes queuing up.

The last times I visited I decided to shock my liver – I mean treat my palate. I ordered from among the many apple ciders at the cider bar the first time, while the second time I went for a Moscow Mule at the tap tail bar. I enjoyed sipping my Mule as I sat in the hanging chair outside the bathrooms, writing this very article. People passing by were in a very good mood and I was full of good spirits as well.

There is a definite speakeasy vibe about Himkok. You might find it difficult to find, but it’s worth the  effort.
