Originally opened in 1914, Anker became a meeting point for the working classes and functioned as a political centre from which national strikes were organised. It shut its doors in 2014, but a new café, bar and restaurant rose up in its place as well as a 40-room hotel. With its alpine chic and modern extrovert design features, it feels rather apolitical these days, yet seems intent on concentrating its efforts to breathe new life into the local gastronomy and bar scene. We like it best as bar in the evening, when you can choose from a wide selection of wines and speciality gins while huddling around an open fire. Though with coffee, breakfast and newspapers in the morning, good-value daily lunch menus and a grill restaurant in the evening this place offers something for everyone any time of the day. It also offers comfortable upholstered chairs with colourful cushions and a high ceiling surrounded by huge windows. A small al fresco seating area is available outside next to a busy road, but there's plenty of natural daylight inside.
