Alcohol is super expensive in iceland. Stock up on drinks on the tax free in the airport and get drunk in your AirBnb.

Tíu Dropar is nice.

Prikið. The best (and only) hip hop club in reykjavik. I dj there every once in a while. If you find me there and reference this article, I’ll buy you a beer. Then you buy me a beer. Then we get drunk and I tell you about how hollow inside I feel. Then we get married and move to Marmaris.
