Bardus bar is inspired by the interests of those who built and continue to run it. Travel both near and far, our love of atmosphere and light, music and intimacy and a great respect for those who put their names upon the products that adorn our shelves and for those that serve them. These things have combined to become the place we love. Whether you have a desire for a well-crafted cocktail, a great glass of wine, a beer you have never heard of or to flirt with the finest examples of aged distillation… we will be sure to make you feel at home. And if you feel for a bite of food you can slide into our bistro and enjoy one of Tromsø’ finest kitchens.
Bardus (bɑɾˈdʉːs), the original Dutch text meaning; that which comes suddenly (baduff). Feel free to use the term… the old proverbs are often the best. Built as early as 1868 as a bakery, then used as Troms’ first cinema, Bardus sits in historic surroundings. The building contains many angles… to venture up on to our mezzanine is an experience in itself.
