The Grand: Take in a Movie
On a rainy night (and there could be many) why not take refuge in the back row of one Uppsala’s bijou cinemas or theatres. Seek Amusement with your lips pronouncing the Swedish subtitles or better still on the person sitting next to you.

O´Connors.: Some beers in an Irish bar in Uppsala maybe?
Well, I was here a Friday night and it was not so many peopel here. But I liked the place and they had pleasant stuff to talk too. This night a liveband played and people danced too, but it was not Irish music....
Dress Code: Casual.

Flustret: Party institution of Uppsala
Flustret is more than 100 years old. Mainly it was built for the university students to have fun, and later become a society restaruants.
In 1984 it burned down, but everyone wanted it back so it was rebuilt again.
Today it is still very popular. The good thing that it has something for all grown up ages (it is not so common in Sweden nowdays).
There is a restaurant inside, different dancefloors and also different themes of musicstyles different evenings.
On wednesdays it is Jazzmusic, Thursdays and Fridays it is DANSBAND music (very popular in Sweden and Norway)...a kind of "simple" music with singing liveband to dance to.
Friday and saturdays it is disco, dansband and techno (upstairs, mainly for young people i assume).
In summertime they also opening an outdoor area, with tropical bar, barbeque-grill.......always crowded.
Dress Code: Normal dresscode.
Bowlaget: Bowling, drinks and dancing....
Bowlaget is an quite new place and has become very popular.
You can play Bowling, have beers and drinks and snacks at the same time as there is a bar in the bowlinghall....
There is also connection to Svensson restaurant and in the evening it becomes a nightclub downstairs....so infact you have everything from Bowling to dancing....
As it is very popular, make an recervation to be sure to Bowl......the food in the restaurant is ok, not more...for better food i suggest just to cross the street and go to Trattoria Commedia
Dress Code: Nothing special, as you want

- Beer Tasting
- Food and Dining
Here I have had my first contact with swedish nightlife...I have found it really nice!
You can eat some typical plate drinking a good beer,
international or local(that I have appreciate a lot....quite "sweet").
Warm the atmosphear and nice the "hard rock karaoke"that I enjoyed that evening...
Obiouvsly,most people here are over 25yo(read about
"Nation"on my travelogues to better understand what I mean..)
V-dala (Vastmanlands-Dala): Student clubs/Nations
V-dala nation is one of the most popular nations to go dancing at, and has been so ever since the 60's. There are usually disco/dancing a couple of nights a week , and the rest of the nights there will be a pub on the ground floor., with a menue for dinner as well.
The age reange for the dances will be roughly 18-25, since most students are in this span, but there will not be an age "limit".
Dress Code: Any way you like. For the dances people may choose more "hip" outfits but for the pub you could basically come in sweats if you wanted. For the dances, good looking jeans of the likes is enough, but of course you can get more dressed up if you want to.
(On the corner of the house is another night-spot, not connected to the nation. This is for a more grown up clientele and offersdrinks, food and in summer, an outdoor area.)
Students have fun;-))
It was Saturday when we were in Uppsala and the city was REALLY crowded we met quite a lot of students going to their parties. As we were told you cannot get to such a party unless you have an Uppsala student legitimation or a paper you can obtain at the university if you are a student somewhere else.
In Uppsala as well as in Stockholm we've seen that although alcohol is really expensive in Sweden students drink it not less than in Poland leaving empty cans and bottles everywhere.. What I didn't like in Sweden was this kind of disco - there was a lot of them in Stockholm - the one where you have to wait in a queue and you are judged after how you look if you can get inside or not..just like in American movies, I definitely didn't like it.
Oh almost forgot - during the weekend non-student pubs in Uppsala are open until 2 am , usually there is one open until 4 , you have to ask people about it, there is usually an entrance fee 30-50 SEK
The Student Clubs /aka the...
The Student Clubs /aka the 'Nations'
Going out in Uppsala is a lot easier if you get yourself a student guest ID. (If you can prove you are a student in your owncountry/hometown.)The ID:s cost a smaller amount of money, about 6 US$, and are issued at Övre Slottsgatan 7, tue-fri. For info call the Guest ID office at +4618-480 31 47.
Dress Code: The 13 different Nations offer a variety of nightlife, from very laidback pubs, to more dressy dances, but as a general rule, the style and atmosphere is quite relaxed. You will not be denied entry because of the way you look.
The names of the nations are:
Gästrike-Hälsinge nation (GH)
Östgöta nation (ÖG)
Västmanland-Dala nation (V-dala)
Södermanland-Nerikes nation (S-nerikes)
Apart from the Nations, there...
Apart from the Nations, there are quite a few pubs, clubs and bars in Uppsala. Most of them get crowded during the weekends.
The clubs are all located in the center of town, around the central square and in the blocks surrounding it. There is also one a little further away, near the duck pond beneath the caslte. Since the clubs open and close all the time, change their names and their populrity status, I suggest you check with the locals in Uppsala when deciding where to go!
When it comes to nightlife...
When it comes to nightlife Uppsala really sucks!!
Because there are something like 25000 students at the university, the night life in Uppsala is divided into two categories.. unistudents and nonstudents.. and they hardly ever mix!! which is rather boring!
There are no (according to me) good nightlife in Uppsala unless you're a student...
Well, if you are a student, you have plenty to chose between, there are discos every nigth. Just look around at the student 'nations'.
If you are a student, make...
If you are a student, make sure you always enjoy nightlife, which includes pub crawl (from one pub to another), dancing, dinner and parties in student housings.
It's just students, and you can always go to one of the student nations if you are student and have received the student nation card.
Dress Code: non formal, except for Gasque and especially Spring Ball Dance.
The genuine Irish Pub and Restaurant: O'Connors
This is my absolute favorit Pub in Uppsala, i know them how work there to, and they all is very friendly and nic epepoles to talk to, a good place to rest and have a good Bear or diner.
Birger Jarl: Birger Jarl Nightclub...
