In an earlier issue this year, Whisky Magazine recomended a bar called Altona in Bergen Norway as a place well worth a visit, Well, there is bad news and there is good news.
The bad news is that Altona is no longer a whisky bar that is worth a visit. If you enjoy wine though, it is well worth a try.
The good news is that the owner of Altona has moved the whisky part of Altona to one of their other fascilities in Bergen. The place is called Terminus, and it is placed next to the local train station. I never got to try Altona, but the new place is really good. Their only focus is whiskey, and I would guess the have somewhere between 75 to 100 different single malts. I had a chat with the owner, and I got the impression that they are going to improve on that.
So if you are in Bergen, do yourself a favour and visit the place!
The atmosphere in the new bar is really good. It actually looks like a place where you could do nothing but drink whisky and smoke cigars (but smoking is not alowed in bars in Norway)
