Fotballpuben and wembley pub Bergen Reviews
Dec 28, 2007
Fotball puben is as you guessed a sports pub. All the supporters of the local team go here before the the games. So it can be very crowded when the local team "Brann" is playing. During foreign matches much of the crowd here is British , but the Norwegian population also like the Premier league so expect the place to be crowded. The view this weeks program go to this address: http://www.fotballpuben.no/ukens.html . Its in Norwegian ,but it should not be so hard to understand. Its mostly English and Norwegian soccer ,but sometimes its Italian and Spanish when there is nothing else on.
The beer is faily cheap compared to other prices in Bergen. 36kroner early in the evening and when the big games starts its going up to 44kr. The prices are rising steadily the later its gets , and if im not mistaken they go down to 0.4L glasses after 24:00.
During Fridays and Saturdays nights all the chairs in front of the big screen are removed and the sportspub becomes a nighclub with cheesy music and a dance floor packed with all the normal 19year old girls that loves to dance.
If you do want to smoke you have to sit outside because the law thats prohibits smoking. But its not so cold as you might expect since they have heating lamps. (and blankets if its really cold). You will not get wet when sitting outside because they roll out a layer of water resistant cloth when needed.
All in all the best sports pub in Bergen if you want to experience some local supporters. If you want to watch football in more calm sorrundings go to Biskopen , which is just around the corner.
Wembley pub: This is mostly a pub for the more mature crowd. With slow background music. The entrance is close to the entrance of fotballpuben so its really worth to just go inside a try (at least) one beer.
