Saturday nights are bar-nights, from around 21:00 to not later than 02:30. Each week another team stands behind the desk, hence it is wise to remember some things:

Before opening

  • Bring coffee, ice cubes and lemon/lime from the kitchen
  • Feel free to bring your own music

During the evening


  • Beer and cider: 15 kr
  • Wine: 15 kr
  • Drinks: 20 kr (4 cl alcohol, soda)
  • Ny-Ålesund coffee: 25 kr (2 cl cognac, 2 cl baileys, coffee)
  • Soda/Softdrinks: 10 kr


  • Use the measuring cups! No more than 4 cl alcohol in each drink!
  • Alcohol can be served from 21:00 - 02:30. People must be out at 03:00

  • Empty the thermo cans and bring them to the kitchen
  • Empty and turn off the dishwasher
  • Clean all counters, tables, toilets and floors
  • Fill up the bar from the storages in Servicebygget
