I love Indian, and my favourite restaurant is Jewel of India.
Check out Torggata Botaniske for awesome drinks.
I like to make my own coffee, but also enjoy the one at Tranen at Waldemar Thranes gate 70.
Ingensteds, which means nowhere, is a good place to get sweaty on the dance floor.
There’s so much live music in Oslo I’m spoilt for choice, but Parkteatret is one of my neighbourhood favourites.
I’ll go home to my hometown of Molde to be with family and childhood friends.
for record shopping
I mostly stream music, but for vinyl collectors I recommend Big Dipper.
for clothes shopping
I’m lucky/lazy and hardly ever shop for clothes, but will stop by Futur or, for vintage, Fretex or Velouria Vintage.
for first date
Do something different, like indoor climbing, so check out Vulkan Klatresenter.
Hop on a city bike and ride down to the beach – probably Huk – with my friends.
Grefsenkollen, a great workout plus, a great view!
My favourite hotel The Thief has the best beds. And breakfast. And spa!
for the best view
Again, Grefsenkollen. You can see all of Oslo and the fjord with all the islands. A little bit like home in Molde.

Colonel Mustard. Fun fact, I only recently learned how to pronounce “colonel” correctly. It’s “kernel”. Who knew?
