An insider's night out - Stockholm, Sweden
Looking for a local’s recommendations for the best night out in Stockholm? Journalist, Cissy of liveswedish.com, has given Lady Adventurer her nightlife tips:
Top five bars
- Aarts (Åsögatan 176) - ecological, local beer, cosy but modern, hip, Swedish, knowledgeable bar staff
- Himlen därtill, (Götgatan 78) - bar and restaurant popular with tourists but the views are stunning
- Söders hjärta, (Bellmansgatan 22) - local pub with good music, a mixture of jazz and soul
- Lisa på torget, (Östermalmstorg 2) - located in the heart of the trendy Östermalm square. A great place for people watching
- Morfar ginko - (Swedenborgsgarten 13) - Caribbean design, hip atmosphere, lively beer garden during the summer
Top five clubs
- Strand, (Hornstulls strand 4), hosts a lot of gigs with famous as well as up and coming artists from all over the world. The place has seen a great increase in visitors since changing owner a couple of years ago and the concept with a beer garden and an interior that has table tennis, amongst other things, has proved very popular!
- Trädgården, (Hammarby Slussväg 2), translates as “the garden” but is actually placed underneath the Skanstullsbron Bridge and the design is more concrete than flowers. This is where you’ll find the cool kids of Söder. Mingle and people watch in the relaxed atmosphere.
- Berns, Berzelii Park, is a hotel and nightclub with plenty of people and different rooms/clubs. You always have fun at their great terrace!
- Lemon bar, (Scheelegatan 8), is a bar that becomes so busy that it turns into a club! Good party atmosphere, random music with tunes that you had forgotten about until you realise that you still love them.
- Slakthuset, (Slakthusgatan 6), is a fairly new club near the Globe sport arena. It has been dubbed the new place to party.
