The bar's beautifully located right down by the quayside, more specifically inside the popular Hotel Brosundet.

Large selection of different beverages

Arkivet Bar is known for its pleasant atmosphere, large selection of beers and cocktails and wide range of wine and Champagne. If you're peckish, you'll find a snack menu at the bar, or you can buy sandwiches and other ready-made lunches from Butikken, right next door. Arkivet Bar takes its name from the local merchant Peder Devold, who had his office at this address in the early 20th century. The premises in which the bar's located were part of his archive, hence the name. Welcome!
