Well I recently had an opportunity to spend some more time in Tonsberg, Norway again and got a little more information.
The Tonga Bar is situated on top of the Harbour Café Sports Bar. The Harbor Café Sports Bar is a chain in Norway. The other locations are in Kristiansand and Bergen. Each of them has a third-floor Tonga bar and is similarly decorated. So, Kong-Tiki’s photo link must’ve been from this same chain.
These are definitely sports bars. Bad karaoke and rap music all night in the lower floors, with the music “selectively” pumped in upstairs. I did not get to see “George Keys with all 10 on the 88s" like I was hoping. No specialty drinks. No fruit juices. They only open the bar up there from midnight to 2am. You can’t even go up to relax before the place gets busy.
Anyways, the place is still gorgeous to see…
