Sirkus, the much-beloved and much-missed fixture of Reykjavík’s nightlife scene, reopened on Friday night after a 15-year hiatus, Vísir reports.

After closing the doors of its original location on Klapparstígur in Reykjavík, the club briefly opened an outpost in Seyðisfjörður, East Iceland, and also inspired a doppelgänger in the Faroe Islands.

In addition to being a music venue, as in the old days, Sirkus’ new incarnation on Lækjargata also serves North Indian food and has darts and a pool table in the basement.
