Most of Reykjavik’s bars are unpretentious affairs to say the least, with dress codes being almost unheard of. Almost. Enter Loftið, which serves high-end cocktails in a chic and breezy upstairs lounge. The decor—a smart wooden bar lit by a rack of dangling mismatched light bulbs, vintage-inspired wall hangings, classic bar stools, and comfortable leather arm chairs—draws a slightly older crowd, dressed up smartly (jeans, collared shirts, jackets) to match and embellish the sophisticated atmosphere. The occasional jazz band will squeeze in, too.
