Prikið, the Reykjavik institution
For those looking for a distinctly Reykjavik experience, Prikið is your go-to place. “It’s the absolute cornerstone of Reykjavik nightlife – a great place for those who love ’90s contemporary hip-hop music,” says Skúlason. The small club feels like a jam-packed house party at weekends, with people crowding into the two-storey house and dancing in every space available – even the stairwell. Sitting right on Laugavegur, the main thoroughfare for nightlife in Reykjavik, it’s hard to miss this iconic red house, and even harder to leave when the grungy alternative party kicks in.
