    Stepping into Imperial wine bar is like stepping into a daydream of a colonial outpost from the distant past. The walls seem to have naturally gained patina over the years, the windows are shielded by heavy shutters and jade painted woodwork. Wall tiles and tastefully selected statues complete the illusion without reducing the interior to pure pastiche. In this calm hideaway from the hustle and bustle of nearby Youngstorget, refreshments are offered in the form of wines by the glass and bar snacks. An all-time favourite of mine is the indecently delicious croquetas with cod stuffed in green...

Opened in 2019, Lasarett is the brainchild of school teacher Thomas Tylman. After many years as a picky wine enthusiast, he decided to make a go of it and open his own place. And with its...

    Short Wine List of the Year Norway, in cooperation with Norges Beste Vinkart 2020

    When Vinoteket opened in 2018, it gained instant fame for three things: the ridiculously low-priced wine list, the innovative pizzas and the fact that former European Sommelier Championship winner Robert Lie was general manager. Today the wine prices are a bit more normal (albeit still cheap), the pizzas are as good as ever,​ and the wine list continues to evolve and grow. While the combination of great pizza and a kick-ass wine list has been seen before, it's unusual to find such a relaxed and friendly venue in an area of Oslo known just as much for its poor taste as it's wealth and lavish sp...
