Voted Norway's best whisky bar
Terminus Whisky bar recently refurbished and changed name to Bar Amundsen. Six-metre-high ceiling, impressive beams and panels, and a massive fireplace – an experience not to miss, and an atmosphere making the bar popular. Nice bartenders always giving you the best service. Their knowledge about whisky is really broad and impressive.
It is no coincidence that the whiskey bar has been named after one of Norway’s biggest polar heroes of all time. On June 17th, 1928, Amundsen held his last press conference at the Grand Hotel Terminus. He was actually photographed and interviewed by Bergens Tidende in the whisky bar. Along with other volunteers, he was trying to save the Italian polar explorer Nobile, who recently had crashed his airship on ice northeast of Nordaustlandet in Svalbard. The next day, Amundsen disappears without a trace in the Arctic glacier. This, together with Grand Hotel Terminus nickname Bergens Grand Old Lady and the fact that Roald Amundsen rightly can be called the polar research’s Grand Old Man, the bar has now been named Bar Amundsen.
At Bar Amundsen you will discover the best selection of whisky, and in 2008 the bar was awarded "Norway’s best whisky bar" because of its rich selection and dedicated service. The bar also has a gold bar-rating in the official list "Great whisky bars of the world".
