There are many festivals in Drammen during summer and in winter they put up great concerts and plays at Union Scene. We suggest you bring a group of friends to a stand-up show – perhaps the jokes don’t always make the mark, but they are not dull at least! Comfort Hotel® Union Brygge is located in the same block hence it is very neat to combine stand-up entertainment at Union Scene with a couple of comfortable overnight stays here.
