Dude, We’re so there! Aug 23, 2014
Though not the highlight of the Iceland trip, Bar Lebowski was the pinnacle of Reykjavik attractions for me. Themed after “The Big Lebowski” (a Coen Brothers classic starring Jeff Bridges as the “dude”), just a totally fun venue. It is a fairly big establishment, with two stories featuring a separate grill area on the first floor, complemented by outdoor porch seating up top. Of course there are bars on either floor and practically every inch is covered with kitschy paraphernalia from the movie.

Our stop was to celebrate a successful running of the marathon and I was wearing my “dude” tee-shirt a friend had given me for good luck in the race. The dude only drinks White Russians in the movie and naturally there is a separate menu devoted entirely to different varieties of this cocktail. Doubt I have had a mixed drink in twenty five years, but I was so delighted to be here (and past the marathon), that I decided when in Rome.....

We sat outside upstairs and also ordered eats, which basically means burgers here. I scored a Walter (their bacon burger, named for the character played by John Goodman in the movie) which came with fries and was rather tasty. Bar Lebowski also has a separate menu for shakes, and Mike satisfied his marathon induced calorie deficit by ordering a banana shake from this list –-- his smile stated it was quite delicious.

I imagine the place gets rather jammed evenings, but we were seated easily during our afternoon stopover. Bar signage suggested live music is a frequent offering and on Thursday nights a trivia competition begins at 9:00 PM (you might guess the topic).
