    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.

    41 years on, still a great pub Old pic of Chris the owner back in the 70's 1974 before Abba was famous 1969 When Chris fancied himself as a pop star

    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.

    by Durfun Written Jul 16, 2008

    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)

  • Karlssons&Co - Norrmalm: Karlssons&Co - Norrmalm

    by MariaK Updated May 4, 2008

    This bar and restaurant caters mainly to a crowd of older party-goers and tourists. Faux mooseheads and nostalgic American signes adorn the walls, and the usual drinks are served up from three bars. Karlssons also has a large dancefloor, blackjack and roulette tables, and five slot machines.

    That's what we read on the Time-Out guide I had with me. What do you think girls? Well, all right, lets see. So we get in, 20.00 (pm). No admission needed (admission ticket should be bought after 21.00 when the place "becomes" a nightclub). Bought a beer, chose a table. Big screens were playing a football game. Wow. Ok this seems that we'll have a boring night but, what would we do around anyway, better than staying in our hotel.

    And then...

    Tables are taken away and a dance floor appears. A disco ball starts turning and the dj comes to the deck. Helena Paparizou on the deck (hey, this is nations pride, the singer has won a 1st prize on the Eurovision contest for Greece, she is half Swedish, so it figures). Good, things sound more interesting. As we, three girls, are sitting on our table, drinking quietly our beers (you know that in places you go for the first time is wise to take a bottle of beer, so you save yourself of bad drinks) and watch around. Middle aged people start dancing.

    And the... wonders begin.

    A mans comes hurrying to our table, embraces my friend enthusiastically and starts telling her how beautiful she is, and, before she comes back from her astonishment, he kisses her on the cheek. Good Lord! "Go" she says, and he goes.

    We were laughing uncomfortably about it, well obviously we got the crazy of the village coming near, lets forget it, lets watch the people dancing. But here comes another one - do you want to dance? Ok I am a polite girl, I'll dance. We get on the dance floor, while "It's raining men" (how predictive) is on the deck. Everybody dances to the rhythm but my partner grabs me to dance a tango or something. Hey, stop that. And he stops, and I sit down relieved. And then on the deck we had 4 Not Blonds singing "And I say, hey hey hey hey I said hey, what's going on?". And I think that the dj is a augur.

    To save you for more details: more or less there were something like 7 middle aged men coming close, asking for our numbers and which hotel we stay at. We kept on saying that we stay at Sheraton, I don't know if there is a Sheraton in Stockholm, but ok, this would send them to a different direction, in case they were becoming dangerously a bur. The good thing is that, after all, they were just leaving when realized that we were not available.

    And then there was a lady from Stockholm, asked if she could leave her purse on our table, started a conversation (where are you from, aaahhh I love Greece, I go every summer to Skiathos) and then started trying to explain that this club is no typical, it was the first time she was visiting it, no, Stockholmers are not that silly altogether, this is an exception.

    Ok, I can accept it, but, for someone who comes to a city and has this only experience of nightlife, there are not many things to change the impression. It was a bit frightening but, since there was no real problem after all, we just remember this as an amusing thing. So much for the cold Scandinavians reputation.

    ***We realized that all these people were drunk. And many of the other people in the club as well. One was jumping on the dancefloor reminding us the baby bears we saw the same afternoon in Skansen park. Then, suddenly he stopped, closed his eyes, crossed his arms, and stayed there almost sleeping for more than 5 mins. Ahahahaaaha.

    Cosy and warm huh? After that you sing 4NonBlond's

    Blue Moon Bar: Dance all night long to Swedish music!

    by zummerboy Written Aug 8, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Blue Moon Bar has three dance floors, 80th/pop/swedish music (schlagers). This place is a meat market and people really have fun instead of standing in the bar looking cool. It's usually very crowded in the week ends, but the que is never more than 30 minutes and everybody is welcome (unless you are below 23-24). Come before 11pm to avoid the que. It's open Mondays (gay night), Fridays and Saturdays and close 5pm (at least on Saturdays).

    Münchenbryggeriet: Classical dancing

    by Sjalen Updated Jul 29, 2006

    I must admit to never having been inside since I cannot dance to this sort of music, but if you enjoy dance competition style things like bugg, foxtrot and those classics and want to dance to a proper orchestra, this is it. There are also dance courses to follow if you stay long time. This former old brewery holds other cultural events and conventions too so don't be too surprised by the many things on their homepage.
