Pablo Discobar | Reykjavik’s Retro Hidden Bar

Jan 25, 2020Reykjavík

For a fun and quirky time, with great 80s music, and shining lights, don’t miss out on Pablo Discobar, Reykjavik’s Retro Hidden Bar. This slightly hidden bar up on the third floor of Burro restaurant in Reykjavík Iceland, has all the charm and spunk one could need in a night.

We were excited to find that Pablo disco bar was more hidden then it appeared online. When we found the Burro Mexican restaurant, we noticed that the sign would flicker between saying  Burro and Pablo, which was a really creative way of hiding a bar within a restaurant but still promoting it. We went up the first set of stairs and asked for the bar, and they told us to head up the second set of stairs where Pablo was waiting for us.

The atmosphere is extremely kitschy with a lot of color and quirk from a few decades past. As a lover of 70s and 80s pop rock, I was thoroughly excited to hear my favorite music playing throughout the establishment, including a three song block of David Bowie. Apparently there are also frequent dance parties and DJs for themed events.

The drink list is eclectic with many unfamiliar tastes and mixtures. We ordered Peru’s Drunk Mule, a spin on the classic Moscow Mule with Pisco instead of Vodka, it was deliciously refreshing.  We also tried a drink out of our normal wheelhouse, it was a gin cocktail with strawberry flavors and fizzy candy on top. A little too sweet for my taste, but definitely fun to try! The disco bar is not afraid to push the limit with unique choices and create unusual concoctions!

With the colorful lights, flamingos, and mirrors all around, it’s easy to forget you’re in Iceland. Pablo Discobar is a fun hidden gem in the center of Reykjavík for those who want to party like it’s 1985. 

Still spinning with the disco ball,

Bodega Grungy Hidden Miami Speakeasy

Oh Miami, you were just not our cup of tea unfortunately. We really had been looking forward to was Bodega Taqueria y Tequila. The front part of the restaurant was awesome, Bodega Grungy Hidden Miami Speakeasy through the hidden entrance, not so much.

While not exactly hidden, this hip Reykjavik bar with amazing food and original craft cocktails was the last drinking stop of our Iceland trip.

Dutch Kills | NYC Speakeasy

When you locate Dutch Kills in Long Island City, it will not look like you’d expect. There is a little neon “bar” sign outside of a grubby dive bar looking wall. If the sign is on you can go on in and find a completely different atmosphere inside.
