A Gastropub in Reykjavik Where You Will Linger All Day Long
Kex, overlooking Reykjavik's harbor, is a gastropub and hostel all in one. It's one of the city's most popular places for a pint, a meal comprised of fresh, local ingredients, and a place to stay. The rooms are hip and fresh and the vibe is like an Ace hotel, Reykjavik style. There's often live music (the last performers I saw there were Patti Smith and Russell Crowe) in a casual, easygoing setting. The menu is from two of my favorite chefs in Reykjavik and is consistently good. There's free Wi-Fi and the rustic wooden tables are easy to linger at all day long. The relaxed atmosphere is the perfect place to have a pint of one of the pub's handcrafted beers. Fun fact: It's housed in an old biscuit factory and kex means biscuit in Icelandic. Don't miss it!
