Reykjavik Bókmenntaborg UNESCO City of Literature


Hér, á milli Aðalstrætis 6 og 8, stóð barinn Adlon um miðja 20. öldina, eða Langibar eins og hann var kallaður í daglegu tali. Staðurinn var vinsæll meðal ungs fólks og gekk af þeim sökum einnig undir nafninu „Ungverjaland" en enn eitt nafnið var „Sóðabar" eftir fullu nafni staðarins, Adlon Soda Fountain. Langibar kemur við sögú í skáldsögunni Vögguvísu (1950) eftir Elías Mar, fyrstu Reykjavíkursögunni sem lýsir lífi unglinga í hinni vaxandi borg.

„Svinggæjasjoppon Adlon, óðru nafni Ungverjaland, klúkir millum gamalla timburhúsa í mióbænum, innréttuð forskalaðan hjall, eins og motarvagn í járnbrautarlest með a bar eftir endilöngu. Pilturinn kemur sér ekki að þvi að fara inn á billjard fyrr en hann hefur fengið ofan í sig volgan sopa."


Here, between Aaalstræti 6 and 8, the soda-bar Adlon stood in the mid twentieth century. The bar, which only served non-alcoholic beverages, was frequented by young people and it is at the centre of the first Reykjavik novel depicting the life of teenagers in this growing city, Vogguvisa (Lullaby) by Elias Mar. The book was first published in 1950.

"The swinging guys' café, Adlon, a.k.a. Hungary, hunches between old wooden houses downtown, in a stuccoed-over hovel done up like a diner, with a lengthwise counter. The boy can't bring
himself to go shoot pool without first getting down a cup of lukewarm joe."
