Bankastraeti 5 Reykjavik: coffee, burgers and cocktails!


Bankastraeti 5 Reykjavik is a great hotspot!

Reykjavik is full of nice places to have a drink and relax for a bit. Like Laundromat Cafe, Bankastraeti 5 is an all day hotspot. Bankastraeti 5 Reykjavik is located at the main shopping street in Reykjavik: Bankastraeti. Here you find some nice stores like EVA and lots of vintage shops. If you’re up for a coffee or a beer Bankastraeti 5 Reykjavik is one of the best hotspots to go to in that area. During the day it’s a relaxed coffee cafe, around dinner time you can drop by at Bankastraeti 5 Reykjavik for a juicy burger with fries and at night it turns into a cocktail bar and club with DJ’s. Bankastraeti 5 is a cafe that attracts a hipster crowd. And I just love the Eames chairs they have there!
