Going out in Stockholm can get quite expensive. Clubbing in Stockholm is out-of-this-universe expensive & I'm not sure if I ever heard someone's actually been out. Prices of a beer in regular bars in Norrmalm & Södermalm climb up to 50 SEK, although you can find cheaper [and at the same time decent] places. The best way to have a good time is visiting Systembolaget, but only if you're sure it's not gonna be cold, rainy & windy, so that you can sit outside & sip beer.
Clubbing in Stockholm is definitely something I wanna do one day, when I win the lottery maybe... ;)
The world’s first permanent ice bar, at the Nordic Sea Hotel in central Stockholm. The room is kept at -5°C all year round. All of the interior fittings, including the glasses, bar, tables, walls and sculptures are made of ice from the Torne River in northern Sweden.
A great experience. You will probably need to book in advance as the numbers are strictly limited (too many and it melts!). Costs SEK 125 entry, which includes your first drink - anything as long as it is a vodka cocktail - served in a glass made of ice.
Worth a visit, especially if you are in a group. Extreme novelty factor, but it is not as cold in there as you might think, and it is amusing to see the guests in the hotel lobby looking in at you through the windows in amazement.
Dress Code: Best not to wear shorts or sandals! You will be provided with themal poncho-style overcoat with mitts.
If you are not sooo much disco freak then this is a nice place to spend time in the evening and night. When i was there, there was a international Film festival about to start there. You can watch a movie or a drama in a theater OR in the lower floor there are people from all age groups playing CHESS and it was very interesting to watch them play the game.
Dress Code: Anything warm and comfortable.
Alcazar is a bar/nightclub. The bar area is in a seperate room from the stage/dancing area so if you are not digging the band, you can hang out in the bar to talk. Well, we had so much fun here too. We went on a sat. night & 4 bands were playing. The opening band The Outsiders were really good (kinda surfy). The other 2 bands were death metal (we sat at the bar) & we couldn't make it for the 4th band. We did run into Nicke Hellacopter here & talked to him a bit. He was DJ'ing between bands (really good!) We had our photo taken with him with Lars' camera because I forgot mine! He was really a sweetie.
Dress Code: Casual
