Why not book a table for Swedish traditional food and mead! To make the atmosphere more authentic, each table gets announced to the dining area for cheers by the bar staff and customers.

2. Richie

A popular modern and cultured dining and drinking experience with truly outstanding cuisine. This restaurant/bar offers a wide range of delicious beer, cocktails, and wine. The atmosphere and energy are electric and elegant in this wonderful location in the heart of Stockholm.

For many years Richie was an exclusive club for Swedish celebrities to go out for a wonderful meal, but now its doors are open to everyone though the bar has kept its original style and high standard.

The food is fantastic and the portions are extremely generous, a perfect stop for a business meal and drink if you are hungry after a long day of meetings in Gamla Stan(Old town).

5. Himlen

Why not surprise a client with a drink at the top of a sky bar with one of the best views over Stockholm! This elegant and stylish bar and cocktail lounge is a must-visit, its 360-degree views from the top are truly mind-blowing.

7. Ice Bar by ICEHOTEL

Have you ever had a drink from a glass made of ice? This is the perfect bar if you are looking for a different (and slightly cold) experience.

This ice bar is the world’s first permanent bar made of ice, built in 2002 in Stockholm. Here are some fun fact; Every April the interior and design is renewed with fresh ice from Torne River with help of some talented sculptors from ICEHOTEL in Jukkasjärvi north of Sweden.

The bar is open all year round (yes, even in the summer!), so don’t worry about having to go in the coldest months for this unique attraction.

8. Pub Anchor

For our rock lovers, this pub is known as a “rock paradise”, one of the best pubs to hear some awesome tunes. A vibrant environment with polite and welcoming bar staff. This pub offers a wonderful selection of beers, spirits, and tasty pub food such as burgers and chips.

If you have the chance after perhaps a successful meeting, we recommend going to their karaoke evenings to maybe cut loose a little with the singing of some of the best rock n’ roll classics. What else is there to want than good music, beer, and friendly people?

9. Kvarnen

Kvarnen is for everyone who likes a real old beerhouse. Located central of Stockholm in an old house with a high ceiling with a height of perhaps 10 meters. The beerhouse is over 100 years old, a must-visit for people passionate about beers.

Kvarnen has a delicious range of food and drinks. The menu is distinctly Swedish and focuses on top-notch traditional classics.

10. Morfar Ginko & Pappa Ray Ray

A little gem that many people stumble across in Södermalm without knowing what to expect. A warm welcoming with a happy and nice environment with great buzz, al fresco dining, and an excellent choice of drinks and food.
