Quite hidden but worth it, nice atmosphere with nice staff. Not as long (length) as we heard it was but it was still cool. Good drink size for the price

Although the entrance seems to take you into a basement bar, this is the loveliest basement-bar I've ever been to. The view of the river is beautiful and the bar has a heartwarming athmosphere. People really seemed to relax and enjoy themselves at this place,...More

It's a good place to chill out with friends. Grab a few beers and hang out in the evening. Nothing new or different. But still a quality place.

Cool ambience located on the basement of Mathallen. I ordered for their pork dish. It is like the juleribbe. Meat was tender but I think it would have been better with a sauce. The dish came with polenta and a cold salad. Drinks are more...More

Smelteverket is situated right on the banks of Akerselva river, in the basement of Mathallen in the Vulkan area of Oslo (entrance from the bridge and from inside Mathallen). The premise used to be an old train track production plant, and the interior is a testament to this. Today it's Scandinavia's longest bar and an athmospheric venue for food, drinks and entertainment. We're open 6 days a week, and can also be used as a venue for work-shops, press conferences, launches and other private events. Please see our events section for further details.
