Historical settings

Funktionærmessen Restaurant is a historical dining place, which always has been associated with high quality. Back in the days, this is where the mining company’s administrative staff enjoyed their meals – and the panoramic outlook over Longyearbyen, Hiorthfjellet and Longyearbreen. Today, the restaurant has a new menu and furnishing, but the history, the views and the exceptional quality of the experience remain.

Opening hours

Funktionærmessen’s wine list boasts over 300 wines, and the cellar overflows with excellent vintages, particularly from well-known producers in Bordeaux. Over 15 000 bottles are available, and we can also tempt you with 70 types of Champagne, including several very rare vintages.

If you prefer, you can start your evening with a Champage tasting at Det gamle Nordpolet in the cellar of Funken Lodge. The old alcohol store from 1954 has been renovated for wine and Champagne tastings. In this room, where miners and office workers came to collect their quota of alcohol, you can book a tasting from our very exclusive wines.
