After the concert, we invite you to a social gathering in the Bistro at Huset with a three-course dinner followed by a night cap to conclude a wonderful evening.
Huset was built in 1951 as a meeting house for the residents of Longyearbyen. As Longyearbyen was originally a “company town” with two class distinctions, Huset was built on “neutral ground” outside the town centre. This legendary building, which is now a leading restaurant, has also served as the local post office, hospital and school.

You may buy dinner in the lavvu.
