Fashion concepts and brands
The various stores and fashion concepts at Paleet present both national and international designers within high-end fashion in clothes, shoes and accessories. The emphasis is on craftsmanship, authenticity and distinctive quality. Many of the stores are unique, and several of the brands you find at Paleet are Norwegian. Here you will find the widest selection of Norwegian brands, several with their own concept stores. You will also find more in the multiband stores. One of the exciting concepts at Paleet is YME, a three-story curated universe of fashion, interior, design and art.
Cafes, restaurants and bars
From 7:30 in the morning, delicious pastry and coffee is served to the early birds of Oslo, at United Bakeries. The Room and Egon open their doors at 10:00, and all the other restaurants are open from 11:00.
The Room invites you to enjoy their teas, juices, wide selection of coffee, sandwiches and pastries. Or, you could ease over to Egon or United Bakeries for brunch. Tranquillity defines the atmosphere on the top floor at YME Bookstore where you can take a pause and persue their unique selection of books and magazines while enjoying a cup of coffee. If it’s ice cream that tops the list, we have Ben & Jerry’s.
From lunchtime onwards, all options are open. In our food floor, Pizza Crudo is busy making homemade, Italian pasta and pizza from a wood fired stone oven. Sabaki presents a complete Japanese cuisine, including sushi, teppanyaki and robatayaki. Public Gastrpub is the place for beer lovers, ideal for dishes that go best with the «splash».
On our ground level, you will find Egon, the two-story restaurant with historic pictures of our proud high street on its walls. Taqueria serves authentic, street-style Mexican food, and is known as one of the best bars in Oslo. Their cocktails tell the story.
Every summer the street of Karl Johan outside Paleet is turned into a 150 meters long piazza. It is the only one in Oslo, and has become a true attraction to both citizens and tourists. It is open every day, from 11 to 23, from 18th May to mid-September.
Specialty stores and services
Dating back to 1879, the Tanum bookstore is probably the finest in Oslo. Facing Karl Johan abides Urmaker Bjerke with a wide selection of watches.
As you walk into Paleet, you will find all the specialty stores at ground level: the optician Krogh Optikk, the jewellers at Gullsmed Heyerdahl, the beauticians at Kicks, our great florist at Floriss, an Apotek1 pharmacy, and Cornelias Hus – an oasis of interior design, furniture, clothing and other stuff that is hard to find anywhere else. In addition, of course, the world’s best chocolate in the Lindt store.
On the second floor with the fashion stores, you may also try a little pampering, Adam og Eva is ready to give you the best hair treatment, and Escape will take care of your nails.
Learn how to shop Tax Free
If you live outside Norway, Sweden, Denmark or Finland you can claim VAT refund on your purchase. In most of the stores, you will get a VAT refund cheque and we advise you to ask the sales assistant whether tax-free shopping applies to the shop in question.
If you use the tax-free shopping service offered in the stores, you may receive a cash refund when leaving Norway. There are refund points at various locations in Norway, such as airports, road borders or on-board ferries and cruise ships. Which refund point you can use depends on how you leave the country.
The minimum purchase amount in one shop (to get a tax refund check) is NOK 315 on regular goods and NOK 290 on food. In Norway, sales tax/VAT is included in the retail price. Goods must be exported in unused condition within 30 days from date of purchase. When approaching the refund counter, please make sure you have your goods, refund cheque as well as your passport/ID card.
There are two companies offering VAT refund service in Norway:
