Bars & nightlife

Reykjavík has become quite renowned for its weekend party scene which goes strong into the late hours. During summer nights weekdays tend to be vibrant as well. The party scene here in Iceland is called Djammið- the Icelandic equivalent to ‘Jam‘- or you can also call it pöbbarölt which means 'pub stroll'. Much of Reykjavík's partying happens in cafes, bistros, and restaurants that transform into bars on weekends, but it’s not the number of drinking dens that makes Reykjavík’s nightlife special – it’s the upbeat energy that pours from them.
