Justisen and its origins


Located in one of Oslo´s oldest buildings in one of the oldest districts, Justisen has served the citizens of Oslo with great food and joyful times for generations – ever since 1928. With a long tradition, this has been a very popular place to come and have a good meal and great discussions among friends.

The backyard is Justisens green oasis. Our concept is to keep the summer feeling throughout the entire year. The Courtyard offers classic long drinks with fresh ingredients – even in the middle of winter. Enjoy your drinks with friends and colleagues accompanied with green surroundings and great music.

Justisen has kept its long and rich traditions, which is noticeable in the Lounges on first floor. You can choose your favourite bar area between the Main bar, the Rock bar and the Kitchen bar. Sit back, relax and enjoy amazing drinks and cocktails in the grand antique sofas with your friends and colleagues. The historic setting of the rooms will take you back to the beginning of the 20th century.

A couple of years ago, Paragrafen was a popular rock bar who served rock musicians and other rock lovers beer and good music. It is a small and intimate bar at the entrance of Justisen, and is really worth a visit. Today we play all kind of music in this bar, and it is a very popular pub in the weekends serving cocktails and drinks - in addition to wine and beer. Bring your friends, and join us for a great Friday or Saturday night with good music and company.
