The first and only Microbrewery in Galway, the Oslo bar is part of a stable of pubs run by Proprietors Jason O'Connell and Niall Walsh that include the Cottage bar and Salthouse. The same approach is applied here with a wide range of international beers but this time they have gone even further and brewed their own range under the Galway Bay Brewery label which is based at the Oslo premises.
The Oslo is on a slightly larger scale than their other ventures with bar being split into two main areas, the front portion which contains a comfortable range of eclectic furniture and the back part, set up with German beer garden style sturdy tables. Many Galwegians will remember this premises as a nightclub and dance hall under various names including Bogarts. The name Oslo itself comes from the Oslo Hotel which once encompassed the whole premises.
The focus at the Oslo is definitely on food as well as beer with a large menu served from 12 until 10 daily. It contains a good range of interesting dishes although the price of some mains can be a little steep. The menu changes slightly at the weekends with the addition of a brunch menu segment which is worth a visit.
The Oslo also plays host to some unique events such as their Tuesday night Movie night which takes place on a huge screen in the back section. Weekly open mic nights and Karaoke also take place.
The large rear part of the pub also has a pool table and gigantic large screen for sporting events.
