How to party in Stockholm

Sitting in the office and wondering where to drink, dance and party tonight? Below you will find our types. In these places you can meet both locals and expats, party like there is no tomorrow or drink and talk in a fancy atmosphere. Follow our guide and enjoy your night with no risk of ending in a fishy bar.


Malmskillnadsgatan 45, 116 46 Stockholm

As they say on the website, at MELT ‘you will enjoy luxurious cocktails, eclectic cuisine, world class entertainment and an experience unlike anything else in the city’. We couldn’t agree more. MELT offers performances like singing, burlesque and acrobats, good drinks, fantastic music and 20’s atmosphere. It is really different from the clubs that you know.


Tegnérgatan 10

Bierhaus is loved both by locals and expats. If you secretly dream about going to Oktoberfest you should visit this place – I experienced both and I can’t say which one I love more! High-quality beer, non-formal atmosphere and surprisingly good food will make you come back there every time when you want to meet your friends and have a cool evening.


Brunkebergstorg 2-4

Ready for the best view of Stockholm from 48 meters above see level? Visit Tak (Swedish roof). If the view doesn’t convince you, you should know that Tak offers a variety of drinks, organic wines and snacks and an unforgettable feeling of elegant Swedish-Japanese design. Worth a visit at least once in your life time.


Tjärhovsgatan 4

Kvarnen is a local with a long tradition. When you plan your visit there, come a bit earlier and try the food offered by the restaurant. It is a good place to taste classics like Swedish meatballs or pickled herring. And after the dinner with your friends, enjoy good beer served unstoppably since 1908. In this case, over 100 years of experience equals 100% of quality.

Final tips:

  1. If you want to party, try either Södermalm or Stureplan. Both are the centres of nightlife in Stockholm. You can easily access them with a subway…
  2. …but remember, the subway doesn’t work regularly on weekends. Prepare yourself for waiting. Alternatively, you may take a taxi, although ordering an Uber is almost impossible on a Friday night, and other taxis are often overpriced.
  3. The alcohol in bars and restaurants is expensive. The prices of a good-quality beer start with 50-60 kronor, and a glass of wine 70-80 kronor. The drinks are even more expensive.
  4. You can pay everywhere with a card, but not always with cash.
  5. If you want to eat something after the party, try MAX – Swedish McDonald’s, allegedly more healthy (I can’t confirm that, although the variety of vegetarian burgers is astonishing).

Let us know how the party was and what are your smultronställen – your favourite (party) places in Stockholm and other cities!
