Kaffibarinn

1 Bergstaðarstaeti
Reykjavik, Iceland
TEL: 354-551-1588

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.

Insider Tip:

Look for the London Underground symbol marking the bar's entrance. Kaffibarinn is partially owned by Damon Albarn of the band, Blur.
