How about clubbing in an opera house, mingling under the stars on a terrace, or lounging on a boat deck sipping drinks? Stockholm has trendy nightlife, from cool, sophisticated Stureplan to the bohemian clubs and bars of Södermalm and Gamla Stan. In the summertime, the city’s nightlife moves outdoors and revellers take in long, light nights when the sun never sets. Below are Stockholm’s party neighbourhoods:
In Stockholm, Stureplan is the symbol of luxury and indulgence. This is where the young, rich, famous, and trendy hang out. Lines are long for the most popular clubs, and many have selective entry. Arrive early.
Rock, reggae, rockabilly, bohemian, electronic, gay, or lesbian. Södermalm blends all styles. This is a more relaxed, less expensive alternative to the luxury of Stureplan. Nightlife spots are primarily in Slussen, Mariatorget, Nytorget, and Medborgarplatsen.
Nightlife in Gamla Stan is characterised by small, intimate pubs with traditional interiors. Here you will find several bars with an older scene and offering live music; bars with a younger crowd have popped up in recent years.
Stockholm has no specifically gay neighbourhood. Here you can show your love openly. Locales flying rainbow flags are sprinkled throughout the city, but most gay bars, clubs, and restaurants are in Gamla Stan and Södermalm.
