Djúpið (The Deep), another name for the basement at Reykjavík’s iconic Hornið restaurant, has been disused for years. While the restaurant remains as popular as ever, its owners have decided to re-open their old underground concert venue.
Anna Sóley will be the first act to perform, this evening.
Hornið is an Italian-inspired restaurant which opened in 1979—the first of its kind in Iceland. It is still the same today as it was then, and a perennial favorite with locals and visitors.
The restaurant basement used to be known as a jazz club and a regular venue for concerts by Iceland’s biggest jazz names, and foreign guests. It was loved because Djúpið had the authentic jazz club atmosphere usually only found overseas.
Anna Sóley will sing a variety of her new songs with a talented band. The concert starts at 20.00 and costs ISK 500 per person.
Other concerts are expected to follow this summer.
