Maridalsveien 17, 0175 Oslo, Norway

I have been to the Mathallen Food Hall before and yet I hadn’t even notice there was a bar in the basement called Smelteverket.

What I found hiding behind the little entrance door was quite surprising: a music band playing in front of a large audience sitting on stools, enjoying the show while eating nachos and drinking beer.

The bar is surprisingly long, and offers a wide range of alcohols. You can also enjoy a variety of finger foods such as dips with homemade hummus and tsatsiki (a must!).
