B5 Late Bar Oct 01, 2010
You might be fooled from the exterior that this place is going to reek of pretentiousness. With a super sleek interior to boast about, and higher than average drinks prices, you can at first glance be forgiven for that opinion. Once inside though, you'll quickly learn that it is as casual as a bar can get. It has one huge sofa mixing in locals with tourists with relative ease. The easy going dress code makes its a simple bar to start, or indeed finish at, whenever you are ready to join the party.

Granted it does seem to contain Reykjavik's in-crowd, but I do not believe it be an unwelcoming place for anyone of any walk of life. The clientele is the stuff dreams are made of, and the drinks will get even the most hardened of drinker on the legless side. All can join in with the fun.

The ambient tunes will get a huge turnout on the sizeable dance floor, but if you prefer to take a seat away from the mix, there are plentiful to chose from.

b5 is a nice place to party. Athmosphere is good, especially on weekends. Sound system is ok, music pretty dated. Among the staff you might find someone who smugly evaluates the audience on their clothing. Style is a question of taste and not everyone can judge it. The staff was unfriendly and rude. In case you don't want to be annoyed by this, grab your jacket and stroll down the road to visit better clubs. It's not worth to bring arguments.
