Movies are best seen on the movie theater (from sf.se) and if you're looking for a great movie experience in Stockholm, then Sergel is where you should go. 14 rooms with a range of number of seats between 49 and 517, all with Dolby Digital sound and nice a/c. One of their rooms have what I call love seats: a seat for 2 without an arm in the middle. Perfect for couples!
Dress Code: Come as you are.
I have only been here once for many years ago and maybe they have changed a lot. The crowd was very multicultural here and friendly athmosphere. They offer 240 concerts here every year in different music varietes as jazz, latino and blues.
Dress Code: Casual.
They have 2 places in Stockholm, (c Address) Live Bands, DJ:s, Clubbing etc..... Check the Website 4 more info....
Dress Code: Nope.... well if there's a theme such as Gothic Rock Live Band, then u might dress as that...
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).
Dress Code: Dress casual
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.
This place is outside the center and because of that it´s not frequented by tourists... It´s a bit of an (soft)rockclub where you can find the real Stockholm youth! It´s also more a REAL place because you dont have to pay entrance, you don´t have to pay for your jackets and the drinks are not the most expensive!
I also saw there are live concerts regularly and I heard from a friend that the food is also very good!
It´s a very nice place if you are fed up with the long lines and the typical doormen!!!
Be aware that it closes at 01.00... so maybe it´s the pefect spot to start your evening if you wanna go all the way!
Dress Code: Whatever you want to wear
Our favourite nighttime activity was sitting on deck of the "af Chapman" (our YH ship) with a sip of duty free whisky and enjoy the lights of Gamla Stan and Södermalm. Truly enchanting!!

The Absolut Icebar was the world's first permanent ice bar. It is located in the Nordic Sea Hotel, just next door to the Arlanda Express train terminal.
The interior of the bar is kept at around -5°C at all times, making it a chilly but fabulous place for a drink! The walls, fittings, tables and glasses are all made of ice, taken from a frozen river in northern Sweden.
When you arrive you are given a big warm hooded coat and gloves to wear. You then enter a door into an air lock, then go through another door into the actual bar.
Not surprisingly, all the drinks are based on Absolut vodka, and there are a variety of tempting combinations to choose from. We were less adventurous and stuck to a good old Screwdriver (vodka & orange juice). You definitely need the gloves to hold your drink - the ice glass is freezing (as you would imagine!) and as you drink it melts a little around your mouth.
It is a crazy place - looks kind of space like with everyone in their silver coats. What a great experience! Your first drink is not cheap - around £10pounds, but this includes the coat/gloves and non-reusable glass.
If you manage to brave the cold for a second drink it is much cheaper. It is best to book in advance, as the bar only has a capacity for 30 people at a time.
You can book using the phone number below, or through your hotel (as we did).
Dress Code: Open-toe shoes are not a good idea!
My favourite bar in my local area Vasastan. Vasastan is full of not only antique shops and restaurants, but also a few very nice bars. Storstad is one of them - a mix between a stylish, lounge-like bar and a local go-crazy pub. Here, you will meet a bunch of well-educated, well-dressed, and still relaxed Vasastan residents. Here people are also very eager to meet each other, which is not hard during the weekends, when the place is so crowded that you can hardly move. You can also eat, but I wouldn't go here for the food.
Open every day 17->, on Thu-Sun until 3 am, otherwise until 1 am.
Oh yes, and don't be confused that the name of the bar isn't written anywhere on the outside - just go in at the corner of Döbelnsgatan and Odengatan. :)
Dress Code: Smart casual
Fjaderholmarna is only 25 minute boat trip away from the city.
For many years the isles where a nice retreat for boaters and thirsty tourists.
It’s nice to go there in the evening for a really strong drink.
After all that’s what it’s famous for!!
Let me say this; I never thought I would come to this place... Café Opera is one of the most famous places in Stockholm, and only famous people and snobby hang arounds and wannabees goes there.
I'm not anything about those three things, so don't ask me how I ended up there... I blame it on too many beers... ;)
Café Opera is situated, as the name says, at the Opera in Stockholm. Normally I guess it's quite tricky to get inside, but we came there on a thursday evening around midnight, so we just went straight in. Entrance fee was 11 euro, and nothing included in that...
Hate it when I have to pay just to dance a bit...
The place is very nice though, with nice furnitures and decorations on the walls. The dance floor is very small though, although it wasn't over crowded this night, so there were no problem to dance.
Drinks are also 11 euro, beer I never drank there, so I don't know.
A nice experience, although I'm not sure these are the kind of clubs for me. A bit too snobbish maybe?
Just a few days later I was here Rio Ferdinand, the Manchester United-star, was involved in a big fight at this place. Poor Rio was asked by a guy if it was a okey if he took a photo of him. Mr Ferdinand answered very polite with a nice "*** off", and then the fight was on... Those poor football stars... :D
Dress Code: I had no idea why I went there, but I understand even less how I managed to get inside... I had a normal blue sweater and jeans. People have probably been kicked out of the place for less... ;)
On normal occasions, dress nice - maybe even really nice. And guys will most probably have more problem to enter if they come alone in a group, than if they come with some girls.
The age requirement to get into clubs in Stockholm is quite high, particularly by European standards. It also varies by night, increasing from Thursday to Saturday. Check limits before you head out to a particular club.
Dress Code: Depends on the club
Just think of going to New York, South Beach, Is expensive the drinking. Tyhe best way is to go to the systembolaget before 5:00pm and buy couple of bottles. Remember the Swedes drink more than the regular American. They drink a lot and they start playing games of shots to determine who is more manly. Easy to hook up. Just pay drinks to the girls.
Dress Code: With lots of Style, Diesel, G-star, just looking casual but nice.
I've been to Stockholm in April and I notice that on Sunday evening there were none around. Just a few junkies in Central Station. I don't think we have been unlucky... maybe it's the period... some friends told me that in Summer Sunday night is great.
The Grand Hotel is beautiful and centrally located. I'd have loved to give it a good review....more
This was a very nice hotel for a spouse weekend in Stockholm. Not the cheapest, but quite ok. Nice...more
