Let us tell you about restaurants, bars, shops, and more that are New in Reykjavík in July 2018. This month: Sætir snúðar, Veganæs, Session Craft Bar and The Irishman Pub.
Sætir snúðar (Sweet buns) is a bright-blue food truck located close to Hallgrímskirkja church. This family business, run by a father and son, opened in June 2018. The pair started out by making cinnamon buns for parties of friends and family. After many enthusiastic responses, the two decided to hit the streets. Check this place out for a cup of fresh coffee and some of the best cinnamon buns in Reykjavík (they have one with Nutella!).
Veganæs is Reykjavík’s fourth completely vegan eatery, joining the ranks of Jömm, Kaffi Vínyl and Gló Vegan. This successfully crowdfunded diner opened in July and is an instant hit. Their menu consists of “veganised” comfort food – vegan versions of dishes like hamburgers, fried fish and cheese balls. Located inside the popular bar and concert venue Gaukurinn, Veganæs offers special deals and take-away options in connection with the bar’s events.
Session Craft Bar
Session Craft Bar’s opening stunt in July did not go unnoticed. They offered 400 free beers and people were standing in line well into the street to get a glass. They are the only craft bar in Iceland with a cooled keg room, which guarantees high-quality beer. Next to a fine selection of Icelandic beers, the bar offers wines, spirits and cocktails. Aiming to be the best craft bar in Iceland, Session Craft Bar’s motto is “If we don’t sell it, it’s because it’s not good enough…”
The Irishman Pub
The Irishman Pub is a brand-new Irish pub in downtown Reykjavík. They have a great selection of beers on tap, but also offer treats for non-beer drinkers, like Irish coffee, cocktails, and shots. Why not try a Baby Guinness, an Irish Car Bomb or an Irish Orgasm? The pub has long opening hours and a focus on live entertainment. And the best thing is, they rent out a karaoke room! Happy hour is every day between 12:00 and 19:00.
