With a new menu, extended opening hours and interior design by Anemone Wille Våge, Palmen (The Palm Court Restaurant) is opening its doors once again at the Grand Hotel. Oslo’s ‘secret oasis’ invites guests to Palmen 2013-style, 100 years after it first welcomed diners.
“Palmen is the perfect spot for guests to meet up for a light lunch, share a good dinner or take a break from their shopping with a coffee. With opening hours extending into the evening, the buzzing atmosphere can be enjoyed day and night,” says Sales and Marketing Director Kari Hasselknippe.
Palmen Restaurant first opened in 1913 and celebrates its centenary this year. To mark the occasion, the restaurant has been redesigned and there is a new menu. ‘Sharing’ is a central aspect of the restaurant experience.
There is a growing trend of people who want to share eating experiences and taste more items from the menu. We’re giving Palmen’s lunch and dinner guests an opportunity to share many of our dishes.
Palmen is renowned as the architectural gem at the heart of the Grand Hotel, with its distinctive glass dome letting light flood in. The restaurant is divided into three sections, with space for 74 guests in the main dining area.
Norway’s most highly regarded interior designer, Anemone Wille Våge, has given the restaurant a new look that embraces a glamorous classical style.
Palmen Restaurant was originally an open-air garden with fountains, called the Palm Garden. Here guests could enjoy the culinary delights on a cool and shady veranda, just like Ibsen used to do in the summer. The garden was enclosed with a glass roof in 1913 and palm trees were planted.
Wall of Fame
A more secluded part of the restaurant provides a sense of discreet luxury, with the dining area dressed in warm shades of lilac to give guests a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. A new addition is the ‘Wall of Fame’.
Pictures of famous celebrities, pop artists and actors who have visited Palmen are hung on the wall.
