fbpx GAUKURINN | Visit Reykjavík


GAUKURINN is a bar and events venue, situated in downtown Reykjavík. The establishment is also the home of newly opened Vegan diner VEGANÆS.

Events are held almost every day and the schedule is available here.

We offer a wide range of LIVE MUSIC, mostly Icelandic bands but sometimes foreign musicians as well. All genres of music are welcome at Gaukurinn and we are proud to  host a lot of alternative events and music, including the fantastic rock and metal scene of Reykjavík.

We have an open mic STANDUP COMEDY show in English every Monday, free of charge. Every Tuesday we host a KARAOKE PARTY (also free of charge) that has become a very popular event – it makes a difference to sing on a quality stage! Twice a month the infamous drag troupe Drag-Súgur puts on a show at Gaukurinn; one marvelous main show with all of the established Royals of the city and one Drag-Lab (free entry) where newcomers are welcomed to the stage and more seasoned performers try out new material.

We also host a variety of other events, including poetry slams, dance parties, burlesque shows and more. We have a great stage and one of the finest sound systems in the city – if you are looking for a place for your event or concert please contact us via e-mail: rekstrarstjori@gaukurinn.is

Gaukurinn is a queer friendly space with gender neutral bathrooms. Please bring joy, love and respect – we want everyone to feel safe.
