FOOD & LIBATIONS
Timeless and sophisticated, comfortable and social, Britannia Bar won “BEST COCKTAIL MENU in NORWAY 2020” by Bartenders’ Choice Awards. Serving the classics to perfection, alongside an award-winning array of unique signature cocktails, Britannia Bar reflects the history of Trondheim and the hotel.
THE HISTORY OF
Trondheim in a Glass
“While museums may be one way to learn about Norway’s history, a more enjoyable experience can be found in the glass at Britannia Bar. Head bartender Øyvind Lindgjerdet spent months researching Norway’s history—even enlisting the help of three historians—to create spirited stories and correlating cocktails. The menu reads like a novella, and each of the six original libations highlights a key moment in Norway’s past. The drinks themselves, such as the Garden cocktail—a concoction of aquavit, fortified wine, marigold flower, bitters, sugar, and lime—exhibit balance and nuance. Somehow each sip comes quicker and quicker until there’s nothing left except the custom-shaped ice cubes, commissioned by Lindgjerdet, rattling around.”
“I wanted to dive into the history of both Trondheim and Britannia Hotel, which has been the city’s most influential meeting place for the past 150 years. This menu is alive, meaning we add new stories and cocktails over time.”
— Head Bartender, Øyvind Lindgjerdet
