..where's the indie action?
Mono, Blå, Gloria Flames, Dattera til Hagen, Oslo Mekaniske Verksted, Garage.
general areas to hang out: grünerløkka, grønland, gamlebyen.
Other things: small independent record shop called Tiger, massive second hand music shop called Råkk & Rålls (Akersgt.). There's a small outdoors cafe called Café Utsikten which is located close to Sjømansskolen (tram 18/19 towards Ljabru) and has the most amazing view on a clear sunny day, definitely worth a visit. plus you could take a ferry out to one of the islands in the Oslo Fjord (Hovedøya, Gressholmen, etc.), ferries go from Vippetangen (bus route 60, terminates at Vippetangen). it's a nice trip but like, there's nothing to do there but walk around and have a picnic and stuff.
use the trams to get around, they're the best/nicest mode of transport.
if you have any other questions about anything just PM me, as i won't be on later.
obvs you should google places for locations as i can't be bothered explaining how to get to every single place in detail.
won't affect your drinking out in bars etc, but if you want to buy alcohol from the shop you have to do so before 6 on saturdays and not at all on sundays. that's the beer, should you want wine or booze you have to get that from seperate outlets that close quite early on saturdays but i can't remember exactly when, might be 3.
