As I mentioned in my restaurant tip for the same place it's cool and colourful! Bright colours on the walls and a cosy cellar downstairs. Often very crowded though, but that's part of the fun.
The DJ plays latino/brazilian tunes and the bar serves you the best caipherinas in town! Plenty of flavours to choose from!

This is the bigget place in town if you like to shoot some pool. They have a whole floor filled with tables downstairs, and some more upstairs. There are also the obligatory projectors showing sport, mainly football and hockey.
I have never tried to eat here, so I can't offer a comment on the standard of the food, but you probably don't go here for that. It can be crowded so you might have to wait for a table to become free, but most days that's not a problem, and absolutley not in the middle of the day. Even if you have to wait they have 28 tables so you usually don't have to wait for long.

In 2002-2003 I found myself moving out to Gothenburg (english spelling there!) to be closer to a girlfriend. I need to find a job, and within three days I miraculously had two. One was working at the Volvo factory, moving cars around the huge grounds there, and another was as a nightclub bouncer at Sticky Fingers. It was great for two reasons. The people working there were all great guys and gals, and the music was exactly what I like listening to. Downstairs was extreme metal, ground floor was chart punk, metal and alternative, and the top floor was sort of acid jazz, funk and groove. A really nice place, and check out their website at www.stickyfingers.nu
Dress Code: As long as you are dressed, you will get in!!

This restaurant/pub/disco/nightclub is situated on the big street Avenyn in Gothenburg. So far I have never actually been there in the night, but the lunches I sure can recommened!
In the nights, specially during the weekends this place is one of the hottest in Gothenburg, with a lot of party! Or as they write on their homepage "we promise to deliver more love than any other place in town".
What that means you'll have to check out for yourselves... :D
Wednesdays, fridays and saturdays are the best days to get here, when the dancefloor will be packed and the alcohol running.
The age limits are quite hard at Nivå, meaning that the official limit to get inside is 26 or 27 years old (you can't be younger, strange swedish "rules") depending on which day it is.
If you're a good looking girl you shouldn't have to worry about the age limit though, as long as you're at close to 18 that is.
The music is mixed, depending on which day it is. Everything from the latest commercial music to swedish schlagers and songs from the 60-ties.
Monday: 11.30-14 (only lunch)
Tuesday: 11.30-00 (depending on the season)
Wednesday-thursday: 11.30-03.00 (free entrance both days. Age limit 25 on wednesday, 27 on thursday)
Friday: 11.30-04.00 (entrance fee 70 SEK, age limit 27 years)
Saturday: 18.00-04.00 (entrance 100 SEK, age limit 27 years).
Dress Code: Dress quite nice.
Entrance fee of 100 SEK (11 euro) on fridays and saturdays.

Henriksberget is a nice pub at Stigbergstorget in Masthugget. I like the place because in summer you can go up on the roof from where you have a nice view on the harbour. Enjoyed it ther very much. Also they have concerts there. In case you can read swedish, check the homepage.

Nefertiti is a Jazz club, which offers concerts, but also evenings for dancing. At least in my time 1996-2000 it was quite popular, but it seems nothing changed when looking at the concerts they offer.

Somehow me and my friends always seem to end up at Valand for some reason. It's a reasonably big place with two dance floors, three bars if I remember correctly. Sometimes there are concerts. There's also a restaurant in the same bulding.
Dress Code: Nothing special, but I think the bouncers sometime make one up....

Rather than mention my expereinces there, both good and bad... I'll just list the places I went.
Excet, Nouvo, Dancing Dingo, Dubliner, and a few others I forgot the names, but they're all great places on different nights.
drinks are expensive, bring some booze with you and have a few before going out. Don't over do it... and I'm not going to tell you my story.
Dress Code: dress casual, but conservative. Take a clue from how the locals are dressed in the day time... try not to look like a jackass tourist. Don't go out in that repulsive red, white & blue Harley Davidson jacket.

If you well into the club scene don't expect too much from this city. Goteborg is still stuck in the Scandinavian 'cheesy' zone, which means nearly all clubs are playing club pop tunes and nordic cheesy tracks. Great if you like that sort of stuff, but I need to have drunk a few beers before I can let myself in these places cos I think it sucks. Having said that if your lucky and don't mind asking around you might find some places playing good trance.
Most clubs are on Avenyn, but its worth exploring around. There are really great pubs here, Irish, English, Spanish but drinks don't come cheap. Happy hours are frequent after working hours. Well worth a trip if you fancy a couple of beers. A nice place I was introduced to was Centro Espanol, really hidden away, run by a Spanish family, great cheap San Miguel and wine, and tapas are excellent although not vegetarian....I just know this from friends. Can't remeber the address but its probably better to ask someone because I nearly didn't find it.
BRING ID. There is a stupid system here that if your not heading into your thirties then you can't mingle with people that age. Age groups are segregated into which clubs you are allowed to go in. This sucks if your 20 or 24. I just reccommed getting drunk and telling the bouncer that your a tourist and your afraid you'll lose your passport if you bring it out, then they can't tell how old you are and its pretty much luck...
TAXIS: ORDER THEM or you could end up paying three times more. Mini taxis are great and cheap (TEL 140 140 or 150 150). You can use all major credit cards in them also.
Dress Code: Dress up. Swedes are definately not scruffy people. No trainers. Try and make yourself look old if you want to try and get into the older clubs. Otherwise you'll probably end up with a disapointing night.

Before you go out in Sweden make sure you get a bit of duty free Vodka down you (and the Red Bull helps too)...
