If you’ve chosen to visit Stockholm the chances are you’re pretty cool already, so I’ve done some research so you can keep the reputation up. Here are the coolest places to drink in Stockholm from super cool markets to bars above the river and don’t forget to book into one of the best Stockholm hotels early to get the best deal either…
‘Street’ brings a London-style street market buzz to Stockholm with its cool al fresco restaurant, lounge bar and multi purpose stage. English man John Higson set it up as a cool place to hang out at night and all day at the weekends in Stockholm.
Hornstulls Strand 4, Södermalm
2. Gondolen Bar
Have a drink here and you’ll enjoy the best views in the whole of Stockholm. The Gondolen Bar is located in the bridge over the river so you can soak up the panoramic views of Djurgården and the Riddarfjården. Tourists to Sweden love it here, thanks to the tasty cocktails and slick bartenders.
Stadsgården 6, Södermalm
3. Lemon Bar
This is well known as the bar to be silly in. People in Lemon Bar don’t care about Stockholm’s supposed reputation for being a super cool Scandinavian city, they just want to have fun and let their hair down. Everyone who comes here dances and to some questionable music; think Bryan Adams, Bon Jovi and Eurovision. Make sure you visit all the nearby restaurants to get the energy to make it through a whole night in this crazy little club!
Scheelegatan 8, Kungsholmen
‘Oh I wish it could be Christmas every daaaay,’ well it is at Peppar bar in Stockholm. Rock n Roll music blares out while punters line the bar or sit to eat. The food here is New Orleans themed and they’ve got a great range of beers, cocktails and ciders to wash it all down with.
Torsgatan 34, Vasastan
5. Judit oct Bertil
The locals love it at Judit and Bertil. It’s a super cool bar with a laid back atmosphere and the incredible cocktail menu changes every week. The downstairs bar is always buzzing with the coolest kids in Stockholm and the bar staff are well known for being super friendly.
