Cosmopolitan crowd - restaurant - luxury
The best place in town for people-watching and good food. You’ll quickly become friends with the staff, who will spoil you with anything from amazing desserts to gossip!
restaurant - tapas - gourmet
Share dishes such as shrimp tacos, ceviche, and gambas all over a community table. During the summer, this restaurant moves into an open, central square ideal for experiencing with friends.
French - Italian - tapas
What you’ll find on your plate is inspired by French, Italian and Spanish cuisines and the menu is constantly changing, but their exceptional wines stay classic!
Rooftop bar - view - cocktails
Want to enjoy a glass of bubbles and see the whole of Stockholm from above? This is your place!
cocktails - outdoor seating - music
Summer only! Amazing drinks in the beautiful backyard of the Hallwylska Palace: the later it gets, the louder the music!
Hotel bar - live music - cocktails
In the middle of the food and flower market at the Hötorget square, lies this beautiful hotel bar which often has live jazz bands, singers and DJs.
RICHE (The 'little bar')
cosmopolitan crowd - cocktails - club
Next to the restaurant Riche, lies Riche's 'little bar' where you know there'll always be fun people, killer music, and one hell of a good vibe.
party hard - late night out - club
Where you go if you're not ready to go home after Riche closes. This is where you can find your friends DJing and dance until 5 in the morning!
club - hotel bar - unusual
The largest dining and nightlife venue in the city, from club LE!, the Mirror Bar, the Great Hall (for concerts), and more: find great DJs and a pulsating vibe.
museum - gallery - contemporary art
My favourite museum! Here you’ll find amazing exhibitions ranging from the fashion world to wild nature, located right by the water.
outdoor seating - nature lover - local
A beautiful spot on the Djurgården island with apple trees, cafes and wild roses. If you like gardening (or just beautiful things), you will love this spot.
luxury - fashionista - historical
Where you can find everything! This old classic shopping mall was built in 1902 and even back then it was the chicest place for shopping in Stockholm.
& OTHER STORIES
womens wear - fashionista - design
You can't go in without coming out with at least one shopping bag from this store. I just love it, such inspiring and fun women’s fashion.
THE MARKET AT HOTORGET
market - nature lover - local
This is where I buy myself a lovely bouquet of pink peonies on sunny Fridays!
downtown - elegant - weekend getaway
The absolute highest service you can get at a hotel. Amazing rooms (ask for a corner room) with large windows and bathrooms dripping in marble.
design - stylish - weekend getaway
I can't get enough of this hotel’s lovely 20s vibe. The rooms are decorated with photos of famous Swedish actresses from the early 1900s.
cosy - restaurant - weekend getaway
This hotel makes you feel like you never even left your house (in a good way). The reception and restaurant are super cozy and the rooms are so inviting!
