Steampunk Bar

Steampunk and smoke-shrouded cocktails

You'll find Scandinavia's first steampunk bar in Kungshöjd. The term and subculture are influenced by 19th century Victorian industrialism and staff wear classic steampunk costumes. The bar specialises in cocktails, and don't be surprised if your carefully mixed cocktail arrives shrouded in dry-ice vapours, served by someone wearing goggles and a top hat.

The Parlour

Elegant cocktail lounge

In glamorous surroundings on Avenyn, The Parlour blends up delightfully creative cocktails. With a restaurant section and a cocktail lounge, the idea is that you can drop by any time for a Peruvian-inspired dinner or just luxe up your weekday with a really great cocktail.

Bar Bruno

Trendy spot

Look for the neon signs and cruise into Bar Bruno - if there's room. Despite the small space, this little cocktail bar has a large heart and, as the Swedish saying (roughly) goes: if there's room in your heart there's room to park your bum. Check out Gothenburg's in-crowd and sip on some of the best cocktails in the city.

Bov Discobar

Unique creations in disco surroundings

As the name suggests this bar is something completely different - a discobar! Guests are transported to the colourful 70s with a disco ball on the ceiling and pop music from the speakers. In the bar, innovative cocktails are shaken and stirred, with slightly unexpected ingredients such as white chocolate, meadowsweet and yogurt, and in addition to the menu's regular favourites, there's also a cocktail of the day. If you get peckish, you can order in snacks and small dishes, or a crispy pizza.

Cocktails meet Asian flavours and disco

The gold bar is the first thing you see when you step inside Lola. Delicious cocktails are shaken and stirred here, to be enjoyed in fabulous disco surroundings among disco balls, neon signs and coloured spotlights. The banging atmosphere makes for a proper night out, but it's also a great spot to drop by for a quick post-work drink. If you're hungry, the menu includes Asian tapas and dumplings, dim-sum style.

Bruk

Nordic elegance

Bruk is run by a bartender duo with a passion for service, food and drink. The cocktail menu includes both well-loved classics and Bruk's own creative interpretations. The atmosphere is intimate and homely and attracts a mixed crowd.

Adamo

Well-known gem

If you ask a Gothenburger where to go to drink really fabulous cocktails, there's a pretty good chance they'll recommend Adamo. Just a stone's throw from Avenyn, their mixologists shake and stir top quality drinks. Choose to sit with a view over the bar and watch them at work, or relax in the lounge area.
