Drinks & Nightlife

This is a brewery/restaurant/bar whit hip local customers. The food is a bit pricy. I had their local beer Primero Lux which I believe was a stronger IPA. The have brewery tours if you check online and I liked the location just by the water.

Located on the 25 floor in the Skrapan building betwen metro stations Skanstull and Medborgarplatsen. The view is insane from the bar on a clear day. There are two restaurants, the lounge which is on the top floor and the more fine dining on the floor beneath. Good variations of gin drinks in the lounge. Can be crowded on fridays and saturday nights. Go early around 4-7 pm to get seats. If its full you can always hang out at the bar and take some photos.

One of my favorite nightclubs. Good djs, chill atmosphere which a mixed crowd: Söder hipsters, hiphopers from the concrete suburns, single girl groups and more. In the summer they have good outdoor places. The view from the champagne bar is nice. Can get crowded on Fridays and Saturdays after 10 pm. Usually no entrancefee before 10 pm and then 150 kr including wardrobe.

One of the coolest bar/club in town in summertime. And I am not the only one who likes this place. Located under a bridge whit good hang out places as well as different dancefloors makes this place one of the most popular in summer time. Come early, around 8 pm and bring some drinks while you are waiting in line. I like the crowd and the atmosphere. Also you have some good djs playing here and also live performances if you check their facebook page. You pay extra to see the live gigs of course. I usually go for the club.

When you are in Södermalm and just want some cheap beer and not expensive hipster IPAs. Originally a metal bar but you see all kind of people here.

I really like this place. Its the coziest place that haven't been discovered by so many because it's located a little bit off from the main streets in Södermalm. If you are in to beer you should come here. They have a good variation of draft beers which they change constantly. They even have a board with the customers rating of the draft beers they offer. You can come here with friends or alone and it wont be weird. The food seems interesting although I haven't tried it yet.

Food Scene

One of my favorite cafés in Stockholm. Vintage all the way and a popular local hangout whit customers of all ages. Absolutely love the food waffles. Try the one with chicken. You get really full with this. I also noticed that they serve traditional swedish dishes. Ask the staff for recommendations. And don't be scared if its full. You just hang around a bit until someone leaves. This is normal in Stockholm.

A popular café/restaurants that attract a lot of foreign tourist. Decent vegetarian buffet which in my opinion is a bit pricy. You don't come here for the coffee (machinecoffee). You come for the chill atmosphere in the garden and the view. In the summer they have hammocks in the garden and a vegetarian barbecue buffet which I like a lot. Discount for students.

My best pick for a pizza in the neighborhood. Its a family run placed by a father and his two suns and they have had it for 18 years or so. I like their pizzas and their happy attitude.

The best place when you are hungry or wanna have a beer or two and don't want to travel far. Located on the square next to my metro station this place offers pretty good swedish food. Try the famous swedish 90s dish "planksteak" if you like meat. The beer and atmosphere is laid-back and they seem to have a good flow of customers seven days a week. The food comes in different prices but the beer wont empty your pockets.

If you happen to bee in the are and get hungry, get to this place for some nice iranian street food. The cow-tongue sandwich and the "sosis bandari" which is a spicy sausage sandwich is recommended.

Love this small place in busy Odenplan area. If you are in to Brazilian Acai this is the place to get it. They serve it very similar to the Brazilian way. The also offer healthy lunch salads.

A chic restaurant/hotel/bar/nightclub which probably have some interesting historic facts that I am not aware of. The food looks expensive. The interior is royal. This is the place you book a dinner if you want to impress your date. Haven't been so lucky yet but I like the big space and the enormous chandelier hanging from the roof.

A very popular summer hangout because of the location and the fact thats its a boat. Haven't tried the food. Do like the locals and order a bottle of rosé-wine. Fancy sunglasses is a must :)

Parks & Nature

The only ski-hill in town. The even host alpine world slalom competitions in the winter. I go there for training when the snow has melted for the J-Lo look. You have an outdoor gym below the hill with timber in different sizes. The view from the top is not disappointing. Get a baguette and a bottle of wine and head here for the sunset. No tourists up here.

Popular summer hangout for the young and old. Since food and beverage is expensive in our country we get our drinks from Systembolaget (remember they close 5 pm on weekdays and already at 3 pm on Saturdays), get some food and then have a picknick/preparty in the park. You are allowed to consume alcohol in this park.

A green oasis in the chic Sofo-area. For the real local experience you buy drinks/food and head here to escape the crowd in Södermalm or to sunbathe. Don't be surprised if you se people in bikini when its 17 degrees celsius. This is considered summer in our mind and we have to absorb whatever light the sun can offer on these latitudes. You will be one of the few tourists, if not the only, in this place.

Entertainment & Activities

I ended up here with a friend visiting when all other museums were close. We ended up in the bar trying four swedish snaps/drinks for 150 kr. Only 1 cl in each so you wont get wasted. We didn't go inside the museum but it seem to be one of the more quirky museums on Djurgården. After all this is a country with a love for alcohol. Swedish workers use to get paid with liquor which of course created alcoholism and tore families apart. Then a abstinent movement was spread and these days most swedes consume hard liquor during major festivities like Christmas and Midsummer. The creation of the state monopolized liqour stores Systembolaget which exists today is a trace off our past alcoholism.

A good swimimng facility with an indoor 50m pool and in the summer time I go here for some tanning and swimming since they also have a 50 m pool aoutdoors. Childfriendly pools and a big green lawn where you can chill. Bring blankets and towels and chill on the grass. They sell simple food like hamburgers and sausages if you get hungry. I think the entrance-fee is around 40 kr per person.

Anyone born between 1970-1990 who grew up in Sweden (or elsewhere with similar youth-culture) will love this place. It reminds you of the youth centers located in every neighborhood in Sweden to keep the young teenagers occupied and out of trouble. Here you can have a beer and play pingpong and lots of other games with your company. You will notice the shy guy taking a girl out for a date and the girls and boys group who are catching up. Very chill atmosphere and hardly any tourists. They do have an entrance fee on some days, I think it was around 60 kr last time I was there.

Sightseeing

A must stroll for any visitor in town during May-September. Put on comfortable shoes and walk towards Djurgården (there is also a trolly leaving from Hamngatan close to T-centralen if you are lazy). Lots of cafés and restaurants. A good place to relax with a soda or coffee and people-watch.
