Fru Hagen

Tel: 47 41 17 69 66's insider take:

Boho-chic is the look at this popular Grünerløkka hangout: vintage purple velour couches, high-back booths, walls painted dark red and hung with smoky mirrors, and rustic wooden tables topped with candles flickering inside red and green citronella jars. A café by day, Fru Hagen is a prime preparty spot, and crowds gather to kick off the evening with buckets of beer or simple cocktails. The parlor-style ambience lures the neighborhood's thinkers, writers, and artists (decibel levels stay low enough that conversations can always be had and heard). Even when DJs take to the turntables later in the evening on Friday and Saturday nights, the laid-back lounge vibe keeps things mellow and cozy.—Terry Ward
