Karlsberger Pub, Longyearbyen

Advertising itself as rated the No. 6 'best pub in the world', this pub is a great local hangout spot - designed around the mining theme. Known as KB by the locals, it is a small, but very content pub in the heart of Longyearbyen.

Longyearbyen have been a city based on coal mining for over 100 years, and to honor the miners and the industry that has been essential for the establishment at Svalbard, our interior shows the mining industry. On our walls are portraits of the hardworking miners from Store Norske Spitsbergen Kullkompani. All decor is inspired of – and collected from – the mining industry.

Open only in late afternoon & evenings with lots of unusual spirits to try. Remember that alcohol is duty free here in Svalbard so the prices are affordable.
