There are no bars that remain open after 5:00, yet people will still want to party (Icelanders live for the weekend, if you haven’t noticed). This leads to a strong afterparty culture where some guy randomly decides to host people in his house. He invites four or five people and then word spreads to a larger group, but the problem is that everyone is so drunk and discombobulated that the afterparty rarely gets off the ground. People drop out, get lost, lose their phones, encounter drunken drama, and so on. So while everyone will be in front of the bar talking about an afterparty, most end up just smoking a couple cigarettes before going home. While it’s nice to get invited to an afterparty, it’s far better to throw the afterparty yourself so you’ll have home court advantage.
To execute the afterparty move, first say, “Are you going to sleep right now?” Give off a tone that makes it seem like you’re definitely not trying to go to bed. Unless she says yes, add, “Well I’m thinking of throwing an afterparty in my apartment. I have some good music and scotch. I’m staying right down the street.” (If the girl is really digging you, then all you have to say is, “Do you want to come over for a drink? I’m staying right down the street.”)
It’s as simple as that. If you get to the point where you can suggest an afterparty, your chances of getting laid are already at 50%. You make it very easy for her to say yes since you’re giving her the privacy she needs in order to get intimate. If you’re staying at a luxury hotel, don’t be afraid to namedrop it.
I know what you’re thinking: what happens if you invite a girl to your place and her friends want to come? One time I rolled an afterparty on a girl and she invited two girlfriends, so it was the four of us walking to my place. Then suddenly the friends got into some sort of fight and dropped out, leaving me isolated with the girl, who still wanted to come. Even if you end up taking a couple chicks back, Icelandic girls don’t babysit or cockblock one another, so all you have to do is hang in there until the others drop or pass out.
One thing I loved about Iceland is that at the end of the night people really don’t give a fuck what happens to their friends. You’ll be surprised how many girls are drunkenly wandering alone on the streets at five a.m., whereas two hours earlier they were with a group of twelve people.
There’s a kidnap variation to the afterparty move that I want to discuss. Let’s say you approach three girls at the end of the night and they seem interested in your afterparty. Then two of those girls go off to the side to have a conversation with some other people, leaving you isolated with the third girl. It’s at this moment you should double down on your afterparty—in effect “kidnapping” her. Say, “Well I guess your friends don’t want to come to the afterparty, but how about we still do it?” Reiterate how close your hotel room or apartment is. If she says yes, say, “Cool, let’s go” and start walking. If her friends are out of sight to the point where the girl concludes that they have walked away, the bang is in the bag.
As you can see, this is more logistics than game. You need to approach at the right time, get her isolated, and then swoop her away with the afterparty move. Once in your room, get comfortable, make some drinks, put on some music, and then sit back as she makes it all too easy for you. Sex will be a foregone conclusion even though you haven’t kissed yet or talked long. The sex will be sloppy, her pussy will be dry since she doesn’t care about foreplay, and her breath will probably be awful, but hey, the speed of your “seduction” will make up for it.
Let’s say you approached a bunch of girls after last call in the bar and then in front of the street, but got no bites. Your next gambit will be walking around the center of the city approaching lone girls. While you can also approach pairs and triplets on the street, go for singles first. This strategy would never work in the States, but it does in Iceland.
Be polite and ask girls if they know of another bar that’s open. Try to get a chat going by sharing details about the bar you were at and how you’re still trying to figure out Icelandic nightlife. If she asks where you’re from or any other personal question, hit her with the afterparty move a minute later. If she declines the afterparty, your last-ditch play is to offer to walk her home, weaseling your way inside once you’re at her front door by asking to use the bathroom.
She has to be moderately inebriated for these moves to work, but chances are she will. It’s the late street approaches that are actually your best chance of fucking a young college girl who stubbornly didn’t separate from her pack until the very end of the night.
The bottom line in Iceland is that the game is just beginning at last call and keeps going until there are no more people on the street. If you gave up and went home alone to fall asleep at 6:00, you didn’t work hard enough. As a last resort, you should get a late night-snack at a busy food shack and continue approaching there, asking girls for an open bar.
