    Bryggabaren

    In the same complex as Anker Brygge, this low-beamed, cosy watering hole is bedecked with tools of all kinds. The bar is a lifeboat from a WWII Polish troop ship that washed up in Svolvær in 1946. There's a regular bill of live music from May to September and sometimes at other times. It closes whenever the last punter stumbles home, which can be really late on summer weekends. Pub meals available, too.

    Styrhuset

    Svolvær's oldest pub is all dark crannies that speak of sailors long gone. There's football on the telly whenever there's a big game.
