Concierge.com's insider take:
One of Oslo's oldest Irish pubs, the Dub (as locals call it) occupies several big rooms on the ground floor of a building that dates to 1666. Inside, wood tables and booths are dark and moody, but the atmosphere stays sunny with live Irish music, lamps that cast a golden glow on vintage photos hanging on the walls, and the laid-back crowd that spans the ages and genres from students and tourists to long-term expats from England, Ireland, and Australia. Musicians playing traditional Irish tunes take to the small stage in the front of the main bar on Tuesday nights. And if it's all too loud and raucous, you can escape to one of the quieter back rooms for conversations at a lower decibel level.—Terry Ward
