Britannia's wine bar

Britannia’s Vinbaren (‘The Wine Bar’) is an interactive wine cellar located on the hotel’s lower level. Here you will find a plush and exciting bar, alongside three more intimate tasting rooms, all lined by 10,000 of the world’s best bottles.  

Vinbaren boasts one of the broadest selections of wine found anywhere in Norway, with many exclusive producers and hundreds of vintages available by the glass. The venue is managed Britannia’s Executive Bar Manager, Øyvind Lindgjerdet, a cocktail creator extraordinaire who has made a menu to suit and delight all palates. 

The result is one of Norway's most individual specialty bars. Vinbaren has a new and fantastic cocktail menu, inspired by elements from the wine world; how about a Krug Old Fashioned or Vinbaren's Bellini?
