Start your Reykjavík night by checking out the Happy Hour times to make things less expensive. Happy Hour is a good time to meet a local or two or rub shoulders with other tourists. This time can be seen as the warm-up for your first taste of Reykjavík pubs & nightlife.

Pub-crawling in Reykjavík is pretty easy and there is a wide range of different kinds of clubs and pubs. Most places have free entrance and are within walking distance from each other, so no taxis or buses are needed. You can just walk to one watering hole after another until you are ready to call it a night (or your friends have to carry you home).
