Reykjavik Clubbing Overview

This relatively small city does not have a particularly huge Clubbing scene but nonetheless there is still a burgeoning nightlife here.  Some have naively referred to it as the ”Ibiza of Northern Europe” which may be a little off the mark but Icelandic locals are responsible for cultivating a vibrant party atmosphere in the small clubbing area of the city. A lot of the low key bars and cafes in Reykjavik turn in to  a late night dance clubs after they close. The local clubbers enjoy a good ”Runtor” translated in English as pub crawl. Much of Reykjavik’s partying takes place on the main street of Laugavegur in the City centre.

Club Bohem Reykjavik Grensasvageur 7 – Bohem is an upmarket nightclub located just outside the city. The drive to Bohen should take you no longer than 10 minutes.
