We have been following Iceland’s the coolest punk trio Kælan Mikla since 2016. The band brings together synths and post-punk and produces a great synthesis. At the same time Kælan Mikla is one of the most favorite bands of some Icelandic artists that we like such as Ólafur Arnalds, Sóley, etc. We asked Kælan Mikla about their favorite places in Reykjavík.
Veganæs, a hidden vegan gem inside Gaukurinn rock bar.
Bravó, a small bar open all day.
Prikið, a cheap and cozy diner where everyone knows each other.
KiKi, the gay bar downtown.
Gaukurinn, amazing concerts and vegan food inside.
Rauða Ljónið, a casino bar where nobody goes, slot machines and a free pool table.
for record shopping
Lucky Records, always representing Kælan Mikla.
for clothes shopping
Spútniik fatamarkaður, its an outlet from the local vintage shop.
for first date
Bíó Paradís, an art house cinema downtown with a café and bar, so cozy.
A trip to the countryside beats anything for walking: take a walk by the seaside in the west side of town.
At home with your cat or a partner of your choice.
for the best view
The tower of Hallgrímskirkja, the big church in the city centre.
your favorite local place
The harbour area is a charming place to go and have coffee with a few old sailors or spend time with yourself.
