Popular bar with modern Spanish influences

Firm favourite

Whether you're a businessman, DJ or just an ordinary bar-hopper, you'll probably end up at Grodan sooner or later. These days the restaurant is something of an institution on Grev Turegatan. The upper floor bar is a lively haunt that's collected numerous regulars over the years. Lots of punters have a drink here before dinner, and there are plenty of stragglers late into the evening. If you want to enjoy a drink in one of Stockholm's most beautiful locales, check out Grodan's sister spot in the Kungliga Operan.

Tjoget

Award-winning cocktails

Tjoget is without doubt one of Hornstull's and Södermalm's most popular meeting places, with a wine bar, cocktail bar, beer café and restaurant all under one roof. In the evenings, the place is often filled to the brim with groups of friends and anyone who appreciates a well-mixed cocktail as much as they do oysters, charcuterie and rustic dishes from the Mediterranean.

AG

Hip industrial hideaway on Kungsholmen

AG isn't just famous for its excellent meat dishes and cool industrial decor. The friendly bar has attracted a regular nightlife crowd over the years. A large part of the experience (and hipness factor) is down to trying to find the right entrance in the seemingly empty backstreet and then find your way up to the hidden-away industrial locale.

This award-winning cocktail bar in the Old Town stands on the site of Sweden's first apothecary, which opened around 400 years ago. Imaginative cocktails with fresh ingredients are the order of the day here and can be combined with small dishes if you want a complete taste experience.

Lucy's

Acclaimed cocktail bar

Lucy's Flower Shop on Birger Jarlsgatan has managed to earn a place on a list of the world's 50 best bars. You enter the bar through an anonymous doorway via an abandoned flower shop.

A few steps from the brewery

Enjoy fantastic beer culture in the Luma area of Hammarby sjöstad. Nya Carnegiebryggeriet brews craft beer to suit all tastes and preferences, which can be enjoyed just a few steps away in the brewery bar. Comfort food is also served there, designed to pair perfectly with the drinks. The brewery is housed in a historic lamp factory in Luma and combines Swedish tradition with American adventurousness, resulting in hundreds of different kinds of beers over the years.

Röda Huset

Cocktails and views

This cocktail bar and restaurant in Röda Huset on Sergels Torg is run by the Stureplan group of restaurants and award-winning bartender Hampus Thunholm. Come by to sip on perfectly blended cocktails with Swedish ingredients, and to eat small dishes. The view is the cherry on the cake. 

Tranans Bar

Classic bar magnet in the middle of Odenplan

Tranan's cellar bar has long been a favourite place to meet in the middle of Odenplan. Cocktails, bar food, DJs and photographic exhibitions, as well as an old pinball machine, are just a few of the ingredients that make up this packed restaurant. One floor up you'll find the dining hall's characteristic red-checked tablecloths and Swedish homecooking classics.

Hornsgatans Kvarterskrog

Plenty of space

Hornsgatan Kvarterskrog & Barservering on the corner of Ringvägen/Hornsgatan is a firm favourite. In true neighbourhood pub spirit, you're just as welcome here for a cup of coffee or a glass of wine as for lunch or dinner. A long bar stretches out across the room with plenty of space for new and old acquaintances alike to meet over a glass of something and few snacks. And if you look for the right place behind the counter, you'll find the Rock Bar, where they serve Pistonhead accompanied by loud rock music.

HIGH Bar

At a high altitude

From HIGH, you can enjoy views of Stockholm's rooftops and waterways with a cocktail in hand, whatever the season or weather. Nine stories up in the Radisson Blu Royal Viking Hotel, the bar offers an innovative drink menu with exciting flavours, but you can also opt for a classic cocktail or something bubbly. If you're feeling peckish, order some simple snacks to nibble on.

Astoria

Classic cocktails

The lush bar downstairs at the Astoria serves perfectly blended classic cocktails, carefully selected wines and beers. The bar has plenty of drop-in places and you can come by for a glass of wine after work or stay on for a drink after dinner. If you're hungry, the restaurant's large à la carte menu is also served in the bar.

Morfar Ginko

A safe bet on Södermalm

Well-loved Södermalm bar and restaurant with unpolished vintage vibes and a crowd packed with regulars. Or, as they describe themselves; "a pleasure palace and champagneria" with an adjoining barbershop one floor down.

Pitcher's

Modern pub

Football, beer and pub grub - the concept at Pitcher's is as familiar as it is popular. Socialise over a bite to eat or a beer, play a game of shuffleboard, or watch football on the big screen. The atmosphere is typical of a classic British pub, with patterned walls and a cosy feel.

Wirströms Pub

Irish neighbourhood pub

Many people consider Wirströms Pub in the Old Town to be one of Stockholm's absolute best pubs, as the selection of whiskey and beer in the bar is both broad and large. Regulars and tourists alike come here to have a drink, enjoy live music and quiz nights in the cellar or watch the game.  

Tures

In the heart of Östermalm

At Tures, just inside the Grev Turegatan entrance to Sturegallerian shopping galleria, the volume and party vibes increase as day turns into evening. The bar serves classic cocktails and a wide selection of signature drinks, as well as bubbles, white, red and rosé wine, beer and cider.
