It's always a venue for local and popular bands in the summertime. Always packed. But always a good laugh. Difficult to get to the bar which is a shame when you're thirsty.

One of the greater bars with live music in Oslo. If you enjoy a casual atmosphere and quality live music, then this is one of the places you should check out.

Always feel comfortable at Herr Nilsen, both for a beer early afternoon and at a consert in the evening. A lot of good live music.

Stumbled across this place as we heard the music, we weren't disappointed when we went in, whilst it was packed it was bearable and the music was very very good. Service at the bar could have been better, but we heard a great Jazz band...More

Unique, surprising and jammy. Its really worth listening to Totto and his houseband themself. Add random jammers that shows up and plays their instruments that they love, you have a unique evening of laid back rock, pop, blues, jazz - you never know what you...More
