Jamie's Italian Aker Brygge

Jamie’s Italian Aker Brygge – Restaurant in Oslo, Norway

Jamie’s Italian Aker Brygge, an authentic Italian restaurant by the famous chef Jamie Oliver located in wonderful Aker Brygge, Oslo, Norway. Open daily; it’s the perfect place to drop in for a coffee and something sweet, drinks, an authentic pizza or a three-course Italian experience. With a calm, relaxing atmosphere, indoor and outdoor seating, and the view of Aker Brygge, this restaurant suit most people for most occasions. 

The Location

Jamie’s Italian is located on Aker Brygge, with a view out towards the sea and the Akershus Fortress. It’s central, it’s convenient, and wow is it beautiful in the evenings. Aker Brygge is a very populated place in Oslo, especially during summers, and restaurants, cafés, and bars are everywhere, boosting the pleasant vibe. With it’s modern, contemporary architecture and its central location it’s one of the best places to go out for food in Oslo, and Jamie’s Italian is an excellent choice of restaurant.

The Food

Jamie’s Italian was founded by Jamie Oliver and chef Gennaro Contaldo, in Oxford, 2008. Their goal was to make traditional, authentic Italian food that captures the Italian, rustic feeling, for a decent price. Jamie’s Italian succeeds in all aspects and causes the mind to drift off to the hills of Tuscany.

The Drinks & Environment

We’ve already established that the location and food are about as good as it gets, so how about the drinks? With enthusiastic waiters with a drive to inspire, they happily recommend drinks, as well as food based on your criteria. According to me, they succeeded in this particular instance as well, with flying colours.

The Carpark Festival in Copenhagen 27 & 28 July 2018

It’s July and Copenhagen is jam-packed with festivals including the Carpark Festival 2018 with up & coming artists, art, street food, and fun activities.

Not your “usual” festival

Foreningen Carpark Festival, the association that organizes the festival, believes that culture truly can make a difference and bring people together. Their vision of being the “banner leaders for the creation of innovative cultural projects that bring people together” drives them to utilize the city’s space to create movements for and by citizens.
Hence, the festival is not your “usual” festival. It only includes up and coming artists as well as art installations, street food, and alternative, fun activities. They call it Copenhagen’s coziest festival, which to us sound very appealing.

The talent

As mentioned earlier, there will only be up and coming artists present and performing on the stage. Altogether we’re looking at 20 artists, spread over two days within the genres of rock, pop, hip-hop and electronic music.
Some of them are Artifact Collective, Ravi Kumar, KOPS, Takykardia, Hôy la, VAKT, Baby Pool, Bette, Klaptrae, MONTI, MANILA and mono mono.
Aside from 20 artists performing on stage, you will most likely see other artists as well, whether they’re making food, art or something else.

When, where and cost?

The street festival will be held at the recreational space ‘Under Bispeengbuen’, which is here, on the 27th and 28th of July 2018. You can easily walk there from Fuglebakken St. and Nørrebro St. If you want to head there by public transport, you can catch the buses 250S and 4A. Parking should be available for both cars and bikes nearby. There is no entry fee, just walk in and enjoy the day. Could it get any better?
