No More Lively Nights At Café Rósenberg

No more lively nights - Café Rósenberg

Rósenberg, located in Klapparstígur in central Reykjavik and Græna herbergið in Lækjargata, also in the city centre have recently closed down. Amidst news of two music venues closing down, of which one the hugely popular Rósenberg, is being turned into an Irish pub, the City of Reykjavik says it might look into giving support to music venues in the city to prevent them from closing down. The other venue, Græna herbergið, a fairly new addition to the music scene shortly followed suit, as it went bankrupt. There remain however, several other music venues, such as Gaukurinn, Húrra, Gamla bíó, Kex Hostel, Hard Rock Café, Hlemmur Square and Bryggjan brugghús as well as Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre. María Rut Reynisdóttir is a new project manager for music at the City of Reykjavik, and she believes there are grounds for the City to support music venues, and that she has plans for mapping out the music venues in the city, not just their numbers but also their aims and their quality and how they thrive within the regulatory environment of the City.
