This bar was a cheap-looking place in Novy Odense that Lee Scoresby visited after an hour or so from landing his balloon at the Barents Sea Company Depot. Lee ordered a vodka and some pickled fish. Here, he met the poet Oskar Sigurdsson who talked with him about the oil rush, mayor elections and the panserbjørn on the island after Lee bought him a Montjulien cognac. He also met H van Breda, a Dutchman who wasn't able to get his cargo out of the cargo hold so he could leave. Lee stopped the bartender hitting him on the head with a stick and so got kicked out.
