This trendy watering hole located down a small side street can be tough to get into. Prominently featured in the film 101 Reyjkavik, Kaffibarinn has been deemed (unofficially) one of the world's coolest bars. It's a laid-back spot occupying an intimate candle-lit space with glossy style magazines on the walls and well-utilized Wi-Fi access. (Locals are often on their laptops during the day.) The mostly techno music is loud at night, and the menu is traditional bar fare. A broad selection of Icelandic beers is served, along with potent local cocktails.
Look for the London Underground symbol marking the bar's entrance. Kaffibarinn is partially owned by Damon Albarn of the band, Blur.
