Pier 42 Bar Manager Hotel Amerikalinjen

Pier 42, an award-winning cocktail bar in the heart of Oslo, is now looking for a new Bar Manager to continue setting the standard for exceptional service and high quality.

Amerikalinjen opened in March 2019 and is an urban boutique hotel in the heart of Oslo. With 122 rooms, unique experiences, and a rich history, we have established ourselves as the number one on TripAdvisor in Oslo! Our warm, electric, and inspiring house has placed Amerikalinjen as one of the leading hotels in Norway since the very beginning. 

Every day, we strive to create a destination where locals and travelers can experience personal and unique moments.

The Bar Manager role presents an opportunity to contribute to the growth of Pier 42 while being a  member of an exceptional team dedicated to achieving nothing short of perfection. As the leader, you will oversee all aspects of the bar operations, and ensure the maintenance of impeccable service standards. 

Bring your passion for crafting extraordinary cocktail experiences to life 

Named after the iconic Pier 42 in New York, our cocktail bar is designed to blend the heritage of Amerikalinjen’s cocktail culture with an unparalleled drinks menu reflecting the modern-day explorer. Our current signature cocktails showcase art from the destinations connected to the Norwegian America Line – Norway and New York, in a liquid form. Pier 42 in Manhattan was the passengers’ first encounter with New York and the new life “over there”. 

With several recognitions for Best Bartenders, Best Team, and Best Cocktail Program + many more, Pier 42 is considered a leading cocktail destination in Oslo & Norway.

Amerikalinjen offers several exciting food and beverage concepts, all deeply inspired by our rich history and location. All dining establishments have a targeted focus on the local market, and we have a strategic plan to be a market leader in their respective segments.

Pier 42 is in good company with our other outlets that together create what we believe is a house full of possibilities. Atlas Brasserie, a lively and playful brasserie, Haven, a green oasis in the hotel's backyard and Gustav, a New York-inspired jazz club and event space.
