Hulen is the perfect place for a concert that is a little unusual. Hulen is inside of a mountain (Hulen means cave in norwegian) so it looks really cool on the inside! It is pretty big, but you don't get the feeling that it is too big, cause it is kind of divided into three parts. Awesome place!!

Listening to the young and aspiring local bands play their music in this cave-like location. An interesting experience where people can spend the night away.

They host one good party every year, Halloween, otherwise avoid this establishment. Staff is untrained volunteers with minimal knowledge.

The thing that makes Hulen stand out is the location. It's situated literally in a cave. There are two bars and a room with a stage. The atmosphere is really nice. It's a bit chilly and they don't serve spirits. Apart from that, it's a must see place!

Very nice place opened in a cave!! Very good atmosphere, music and young people. One of the cheap beer in Bergen. It isn't a restaurant even if you cane at something, but more a after dinner place to have party, listen to music, dance or just drink something with friends.

This is a typically student place, but the bar is located in a cave into mountain side (!) Often concerts with local bands.

Hulen (The Cave) is an old bombshelter beneath on of the parks in Bergen. It is literally a cave, carved into the mountain and is divided into to bars and a live stage. The crowd is young, partly because it is run by students, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Only Hansa (local beer) on tap, but actually... More

Why this is under the category restaurant I don't know, since Hulen is a pub and live scene, but it as pubs and live scenes go it's really one of a kind. Hulen has been an institution among students for generations. It has been said that it is the oldest rockpub in northern Europe. Hulen, wich means The Cave in... More
