    Cadierbaren: Drinks at the Grand

    by MM212 Written Mar 22, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is expensive and perhaps pretentious, but I enjoyed having a drink at Cadierbaren, the bar at the Grand Hôtel. First, the terrace offers unobstructed views over the illuminated Royal Palace and Gamla Stan, and second its main room has a breathtaking ceiling that needs admiring. A pre-dinner drink here is most enjoyable, but they also serve snacks.

    Glenfiddich Warehouse No. 68

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is bu no doubt my favourite place in Stockholm old city for a city break of a drink and a snack. Located in the centre in the old town it is easy to find and their special local brewery beers are excellent going with local food menu that usually is on offer.

    Dress Code: The usual colthes you have on your body. Nothing special. But t doesnt mean that you can dress up here.It is up to yourself here.

    Icebar Stockholm: Insert your own "cool" joke here

    by brazwhazz Written Dec 6, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Guaranteed to be the coolest spot in town to have a drink, with its temperature maintained at an icy -5°C (23°F in American temperature), the Stockholm Icebar can be a fun novelty to visit if you have some money to blow.

    At SEK 195 (a bit less if you reserve a time online or by phone), the entrance fee bites into your wallet, but includes a complementary vodka (or non-alcoholic) drink served in a glass made of ice. If you hold on to your glass, refills are "only" SEK 95, but the main inconvenience with the Icebar is that your visit will likely be a brisk one, due to the temperature.

    Dress Code: Fortunately, the Icebar supplies warm clothes to wear inside!

    Clubbing sites in English: Find Your Favourite Stockholm Club

    by kanjon Written Jun 22, 2011

    To find places that suits your own clubbing style and favourite ambience look at the following sites. I have chosen ones with a good quality selection and "trustworthy" reviews/opinions (in English). In Stockholm there are some different areas where party is on, and in quite different ways. These sites describe some of them. Party on!

    And some summer suggestions (in Swedish, but quite current so use the tips and double-check with the sites above):

    Debaser, Södra teatern: Clubs that admit guests 18+

    by kanjon Updated Jun 22, 2011

    For people 18 years old that look for a good place to dance and have some fun.

    Debaser Slussen has 18 years limit Sun-Thu, and have really good events. Music interested, indie/rock people. Both at Slussen and Medborgarplatsen. I'd opt for the Slussen debaser in summertime. Good bar/lounge outdoors and nice concerts/clubs indoors. Be there early. Looooong queues. Check homepage:

    Also, Södra teatern has good events and concerts. Concerts always from 18 years. Multicultural, also nice outdoor terrace with view of Stockholm. Great clubs too. i f you buy the ticket beforehand I think that 18 years is ok for clubs as well. Check it though.

    These are not the most mainstream choices, but good placed for a great night out! Have fun!

    Club SOUL /Fasching: Who Stole The Soul?

    by kanjon Updated Jun 21, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The soul has been here, on the SOUL club, for the last 13 years and still the club gives you one of the happiest and hottest dancefloors in Stockholm. Bop around to 60´s and 70´s disco, rare grooves, soul, jazz, funk and latin. Forgot your dancing shoes at home? Buy new ones! Get in the mood on:
    Saturdays 23.20-04.00 Entrance: 80 kr

    Fashing, the Jazzclub housing SOUL is an old-time favorite (the place goes back to the mid 70ies) with great top-notch jazz concerts (who hasn´t played there?), bar and a basic but good, reasonably priced restaurant. Don´t forget to check who is playing, it could be your all time favorite!

    Another club I like on Fasching is Cubanocturna. Salsaclub with focus on Cuba and live stagings. Salsa legends such as Los Van Van, Oscar de Leon, Charanga Habanera have played here. Enjoy hot dancefloor with a booty-shaking latin-mix of: Salsa, Son, Timba, Mambo, Rumba, Cumbia, Merungue, Reggaeton, Bogaloo.

    See you guys on the dancefloor! Once again, this is it!

    Dress Code: Nothing but your best moves counts!

    Big indie/culture/club/food scene: Strand: clubs, restaurant and bar

    by kanjon Written Jun 21, 2011

    Strand has got a little of the best of everything. It is a meeting-place for everyone that has an interest in popular culture, and a programme ambitious enough for all of us to find something to enjoy. The smallest event is nice. Recently (spring 2011), I went to a release party for a new album. The band bought every "real" fan drinks and gave an intimate concert. Strand also hosts bigger events, concerts and some good clubs for dancing.

    Really nice restaurant as well, indoors and ourdoors. The outdoor seating by the water is an awesome place in the summer. Big plus for mixed age groups, the people come here for their interests not their age. Good both in daytime and later at night.

    The restaurant and bar are open the following hours, for the concerts and clubs check webpage:
    Mon & Tue 16.00-01.00
    Wed & Thu 16.00 – 02.00
    Fri 16.00 – 03.00
    Sat 14.00 – 03.00

    Dress Code: Wear what you feel like wearing. Strand is a relaxed place but some people also dress up. No judgemental attitudes but personality is a plus.

    Rival, bar/bistro/theatre/clubs: Pleasuredome!

    by kanjon Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Rival, by Mariatorget is a good place for a night out, Rival is an old cinema, turned into a bar/restaurant/boutique hotel/cinema/theatre/bistro/café/bakery place. Very nice. And the owner is... – the bearded Benny from ABBA!

    This is an elegant yet down to earth and popular meeting-place for a glass of wine or a late supper. There are many good shows an the theatre, a lively bar with quite good clubs.

    The only part I wouldn´t recommend it seeing a movie at the Rival cinema. They don´t serve popcorn, plus the seats are ordinary chairs. its not a snugging cinema, nor a comfy-sunday-with-friends cinema. But otherwise the place is superbon!!

    The bakery is one of few in Stockholm that make better bread (or maybe not, almost as good) as me!:-)- I haven´t tried the top-floor restaurant but the bistro serves good food in a relaxed environment.

    Rival is located by one of my favorite squares in Stockholm, Mariatorget.

    Dress Code: Relaxed casual.

    La Habana dancefloor: Bamboleo!

    by kanjon Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Crowded and personal Salsa dancefloor in the well-designed basement of Cuban restaurant La Habana (see restaurant-tip for the food). Here, all kinds of Salsa-dancers mingle, all from Cuban and Latino dance-magicians to Swedish amateurs (such as me). Great dj´s, frequently accompanied by live drummers. The space is personal and quite small with a good bar. La Habana is HOT in every meaning of the word, so wear something light :-) Best on Fridays and Saturdays and some Wednesdays

    Dress Code: Dress for party! No dress-snob-place. Jeans or suit, skirt or hotpants, high heels or sneakers, everything is ok. A smile always looks good!

    Friday's: good after work

    by marielexoteria Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Friday's is one of the places I like going to for an after work drink. It's also the first American bar/bistro I visited both in my country and in Europe and I'm happy to report that they have the same flavors in both places. The last 3 times I've visited Friday's they had these "Ultimate Drinks". I chose their Ultimate Strawberry Daiquirí and it was so yummy! I've also tried their Ultimate Rum Springer which was good but not exactly me.

    If you don't want to eat a lot here, you can always go for one of their appetizers, like their potato skins with sour creme or their nachos with salsa.

    The picture of my drink was taken with my mobile.

    Legend on the map and access:
    #1 = Friday's on Birger Jarlsgatan. Take the red line towards Ropsten or Mörby Centrum and get off at Östermalmstorg. One of the exits goes right to the entrance of Friday's.

    #2 = Friday's at Hamngatan. Take the blue line towards Kungsträdgården and get off at the end of the journey, or you can walk from T-centralen.

    Dress Code: Come as you are

  • Wirstroms: Gamla Stan Irish Pub

    by Mariajoy Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We came across this place more by luck than judgement. It looks so quiet and unassuming on the outside - then you open the door and find it's absolutely heaving!!!
    It's open 'til midnight Mon-Fri and 1am Sat and Sun, and it really does get busy - so get there early if you are going for the evening to listen to the live music and you want a seat. Oh yeah.... the seats.... downstairs the seats are lets say... comfy, well worn - it all adds to the cavern-like ambience, candle wax and celtic art. The locals are friendly too. A pint of Caffreys is around 48SEKs - but I don't actually drink beer so don't take my word for it :)

    Dress Code: Dress Code?? Good grief! wear what you like!
