    Bishops Arms: more english?

    by iaint Written Jun 19, 2010

    Had pre-dinner drinks in here with VTer marielexoteria and her husband one Sunday night.

    An English style pub, and pretty deserted at that time. It has a huge selection of beers. I started with Staropramen (dark) and then moved on to Harviestoun's Bitter & Twisted (a local Scottish real ale).

    Staff were English, but friendly enough.

    It is close to the central railway station, so no doubt popular with commuters.

    Dress Code: None.

    The Bull & Bear Inn: english?

    by iaint Written Jun 17, 2010

    I stopped in here for a quick one after my post dinner stroll by the water.

    I had a little jolt to my system on the way back to the hotel, and wanted something to take my mind off it.

    69 SEK for a pint of local lager (Bryggmasterens). Pricey by UK standards, but it sure keeps the riff raff out.

    Mostly inhabited (at about 9pm) by businessmen relaxing after a tough day.

    Dress Code: A Hugo Boss suit & a briefcase?

    Belgobaren: a piece of Belgium in Sweden

    by marielexoteria Updated Jun 15, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Belgobaren started as a beer and whiskey bar and progressed into a restaurant with some Belgian and Swedish cuisine. They offer a big selection of Belgian beer (you won't find anything local there) both in draft and in bottles, and with every dish they have in their menu they recommend the right beer for it.

    I visited this bar with VT'er iaint and we had dinner there (portions too big for us to eat completely) and good beer, regular and fruity ones. One thing I liked is that the noise level is low enough to carry a conversation without having to shout. They also show big sports events (in this case, the football world cup.

    Dress Code: Come as you are.

    Tudor Arms: Voted once best pub outside of the UK

    by budapest8 Written May 22, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    Finest British pub in Stockholm...Now 41 years old.
    The Tudor Arms has a special place in my heart and connection
    as the owner, Chris Bellows is from the Isle of Wight and even
    a barman called Pat was also from Ryde on the Island like me.
    Long before I moved to Stockholm in 1979, the stories about Stockholm
    and the Tudor Arms were the stuff of legends. Even one of my sisters
    old boyfriends from the Island worked in Stockholm for over a year
    as a dental technician and I heard all sorts of stories.

    I even met the then Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme back in
    1980 coming out of the Ostermalm Tunnelbana and asked him
    directions to the Tudor Arms. Sadly he was assassinated in the street
    in 1986 when coming out of a cinema with his wife. That was the end of
    Swedish politicians mingling with the general public.

    The ***TUDOR ARMS*** opened it's doors to the thirsty Stockholm public in October 1969 as the first pub of its kind in Sweden. It was a hit from day one and even today, after the opening of countless imitations around town, it retains its reputation for being the only true British pub in Stockholm. Chris and his dedicated staff, now into the 2nd generation, have been running The Tudor Arms for over 40 years, so if you´re looking for a Great British Pint, some homemade Steak and Mushroom Pie, want to watch live Premiership football, need to brush up your English, or just want to feel completely at home, please go for a visit.
    It was the staple event every year when I took my English student groups there for an end of term meal and drink where ENGLISH only was enforced for the evening!

    Dress Code: Kilts, jeans or whatever you fancy.

    Well, you dont have to dress up if you visit this bar. They have some times live music and here you only go to get drunk. It is not the best place, but I had fun here but that is a long time ago. I went here some Wednedsdays and drank with my student friends in Stockholm. That was fun here and all kind of people came here.

    Dress Code: It doesnt matter what you wear.

    I have been here acouple of times. Snaps is situated on Medborgarplatsen and during the summer it is very pleasant to sit outside and drink beer or what you want to drink. They have many tables outside in the sunshine.

    Dress Code: Normal. No special, and during the summer, just summer clothes.

    The Soap Bar.: The Soap Bar.

    by Dizzyhead Updated Jan 24, 2010

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I liked it, but maybe because I was there with many friends. The guests here were mainly younger persons, and I felt that I was little too old here. But some times it can be nice to be around younger people. I did not feel that I was the party-daddy.

    Dress Code: You dress up a little bit here my friend. Here the crowd is under 28 years old i would guess. I was the only old man here when I was here. But I ha fun here and it is a good place to start with.

    Bishop Arms

    by Gili_S Written Oct 25, 2009

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bishop Arms are networks of pubs all over Sweden and often they are very good spot for drinking as well as for eating. This particular one in Stockholm is right in the centre not far from the raily station and perfect place to kill few hours with some good local beers you can surely cannot have in the station :)

    Absolut Icebar: The drinkers are in the fridge

    by Manara Updated Aug 17, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Currently there are ice-bars in several cities, but the one in Stockholm is the first permanent one in the world. The interior is made with ice from the Torne River, in Northern Sweden. It is preserved by keeping the place at a constant temperature of -5°C.
    There is a limit to the number of people who can stay inside at the same time, so one cannot stay in the bar for more than 40 minutes. My impression is that customers are more interestd in taking pictures than in the colourful cocktails.
    Opening time is 12.45. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday it closes at 1.00 am, at midnight on other days.
    Dropping in for a drink will cost you SEK 195, the price includes one drink, refills cost SEK 95. The price is reduced to SEK 180 if you book in advance, SEK 170 if the reservation is done online. Guests of the Nordic Sea Hotel pay SEK 150.

    Dress Code: At the entrance the customers receive a cape and gloves. The cape has a hood, which is actually not necessary. At least one glove is mandatory, because otherwise you would not be able to hold the glasses, which are made of ice.

    Any Club: 21 and over - beware!

    by peliason Written Jan 28, 2009

    If you want to go dancing or to a nightclub, you need to be OVER 21! We found this out the hard way, when we went to Sweden. It doesn't matter if you are from another country, this is the rule in Sweden.

    We were able to go to a restaurant and order beer, but we couldn't get into a club to go dancing.

    Absolut Icebar: the coolest bar in town, literally

    by marielexoteria Written Jan 28, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Absolut Icebar is as close as you can get from Sweden's famous Ice Hotel in Kiruna. The bar is made of ice shipped from Torneälven (the Torne river) where they also take the ice to build the Ice Hotel. Every year the bar gets a new design.

    The temperature inside the bar is -5C. Included in the price (as of Jan 2009, 180 SEK) is a welcome drink in an ice glass and a cape. They have built some sitting places and so that you don't freeze your behind, where you can sit they have put some reindeer skin cushions.

    A refill (or another drink) in the same glass costs 95 SEK. My glass leaked and I got a free drink, tho.

    Book online at the link below or drop in on Fri-Sat after 9:45pm (then the fee is 195 SEK).

    Dress Code: Casual. Bring your own gloves, if possible, as the cape only has a glove.

    Bar Nada has all of this: a great bar (the person who casted the bartenders is worthy of at least one Oscar), great Dj´s, tasty and affordable tapas, frequent and spontaneous dancing and a friendly ambience/audience.

    I am always happy on/after a night at Nada! Is is quite a small place, but with a big heart!

    Nada also hosts the funny club Rhythm Kitchen.

    Absolut Icebar: Stockholm Absolut Ice Bar

    by Durfun Written Jul 16, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This bar is really cool and funky. It is located in the Nordic Sea Hotel. Go through the rotating doors, walk past the cool loungers and turn right opposite the aquariums.

    There you'll see it: The Ice Bar :)

    Show your tickets or pay on the spot, wait for your turn (they limit numbers in the room), put on the warm gear & in you go!

    The whole room is made out of ice, including the ice-block chairs, sofas (with hides as throws), not to mention the very glasses you drink from ;)

    There's a cocktail list available, and the bar-tenders (donning funky head gear) cheerfully put together your request :)

    Then kick back and enjoy. Pose for piccies, enjoy the -5C constantly maintained temperature. Everyone is in great spirits. And I didn't want to leave the place!!!

    180 SEK for pre-booked sessions.
    195 SEK for drop-in sessions on Fridays and Saturdays (Thu-Sat during summer) after 21.45.

    Opening hours

    Summer (1/6 - 15/9)
    Sun-Wed: 12.45 - 00.00
    Thu-Sat: 12.45 - 01.00 (Drop-in from 21.45)

    autumn/winter/spring (16/9 – 31/5)
    Sun-Thu: 16.30 - 00.00
    Fri-Sat: 15.00 - 01.00 (Drop-in from 21.45)

    Dress Code: It does not really matter as you are given a thermal anorak/parka with mittens too :)
