Gay, lesbian bars in Oslo

Gay Oslo: Bars and clubs

Same-sex couples can go to the restaurant or bar of their choice – they do not need to go to a place especially for gays. However, there are of course places where you are more likely to meet other gays and lesbians, mainly in the city centre.

Oslo's gay nightlife is not as segregated as in many other cities; gays and lesbians often go to the same places, and different age groups mix. In addition to the designated gay and lesbian bars like London and Elsker, there are also other places with many gay regular guests, such as Bobs pub.


'Oslo is inclusive, and everyone, regardless of sexuality, mingles together in an open social environment.'
