As beer is very expensive in Iceland the few bars in Reykjavik offer a happy "hour" that usually lasts a few hours. We walked the length of the main street and had a look at all of the bars and decided to visit Kofinn as it had a 2 for 1 offer. The bar is situated on a corner underneath a shop and is really just one smallish room. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and as with just about every where in Iceland it is staffed by young people. The beer was good and the background music gave the feel of a small jazz club.
Definitely worth a visit and must surely be better than the alternatives, Shooters or an Irish pub.

I love this place. Always stop in on my trips to Iceland. Maybe it's touristy maybe it isn't, but it's great either way. Nice staff. Great food and solid beers.

Happy hour + live music nightly = fun times! One might call this a dive bar, but it's a dive bar with culture and class. A good place to sit, drink and chat with friends.

Popped into this basement bar during a snow storm and stayed much longer than we had planned to. The Viking Christmas beer was really tasty and the atmosphere with small tables filled with locals and tourists of all ages was very welcoming. It reminded us of bars in NYC's East Village before it became a gentrified tourist trap. We went back the following afternoon to make the most of the happy hour although it is only the Viking Lager that is half price (you need to buy two for the price of one). Great place to spend an hour or two.
