Cocktail: Cosmopolitan

Music takes center stage here, and this club in the enjoyably boutique Berns Hotel boasts more visiting DJs than any hot-spot in the city. Like it quieter? Try in-house bistro Asiatiska.

Cocktail: Pastis

As Stockholm’s hipsters seek to revive old traditions, Boulebar is gaining interest as a great place to drink beer, dine and play, as the name implies, boules.

Cocktail: Ginger Doll
+46 (0) 8 550 602 66 / bar-bro.se

The owners of this new addition to the island of Södermalm team with the cinema a few blocks away for Salon 4, where you can
order great drinks and sushi while catching a movie.

Och Himlen Därtill
Cocktail: Ginger Fusion
+46 (0) 8 660 60 68 / restauranghimlen.se

Stockholmers head here for the cocktails and the Swedish tapas–styled menu—fried cod skin, onion soup with oxtail and the like. As the name translates to “heavenly views of the city,” think sofas and relaxing music.

You’ll find the bar opposite the Pet Sounds record shop. Besides different club nights Wednesday through Saturday, this place hosts Sunday Sessions, complete with free gigs.
