- Meeting place, workshop and performance venue

Sentralen is Oslo’s new venue and Norway's biggest workshop for creative forces in culture and innovation.

Right in the heart of Oslo is the building that used to be home to the oldest savings bank in Norway, and has now been converted into a unique building with six fantastic venues for cultural experiences. Sentralen is also the workplace for over 350 creative people producing a range of cultural expressions and working to find new solutions to social challenges. And in charge of the food and drink in the restaurant and ground floor café is some of the most exciting chefs in Norway.

The aim for Sentralen is to become one of our capital city’s most vibrant meeting places for people who love going to concerts, discussing social challenges or enjoying an excellent meal.

As well as being a centre for the dissemination of culture and great ideas, Sentralen also has modern rehearsal and production rooms, and attractive meeting and conference facilities that are available for hire.

Sentralen is owned by the Savings Bank Foundation DNB. The Foundation has fully financed the transformation of this old bank building in Øvre Slottsgate 3 into what is now the biggest centre for culture and innovation in Norway.
