Gothenburg Nightlife, Sweden

Gothenburg nightlife is enchanting to say the least. With its host of bars, cafés, casinos, clubs, concert halls and restaurants, Gothenburg’s nightlife makes it the most popular Swedish city. The fact that most of the entertainment venues are open to gays and lesbians has added to the appeal of Gothenburg nightlife.

Gothenburg Nightlife – Eateries

When you are eating out in Gothenburg, you are not only treated to Swedish specialties but get to taste world cuisine. There is a McDonald’s outlet at the turn of almost every street and this sure is the best choice if you are trying to be a little safe with your food. But if you are a foodie, this epicurean heaven has lots to offer to you. Taste the Swedish dishes at Fiskekrogen and Hemma Hos. While Manfred's Wiener Heuriger serves you tasty Austrian fare, The Golden Days is known for its typical English food and whiskey. The Sjömagasinet, at Klippan 6, brings you mouth-watering seafood along with great views of the harbor.

Gothenburg Nightlife – Bars & Nightclubs

Avenyn and Vasagatan are the two districts where you will find most of Salzburg’s bars and nightclubs. Taking you round the city-bars first…here you have Bitter Bar & Matsal at Linnégatan 59, Bishop’s Arms at Avenyn 36, Gossip at Parkgatan 13, Lounge Göteborg at Avenyn 5, The Dubliner at Östra Hamngatan 50B and Zapphobar at Restaurang Trappan. Most of these bars remain open till late, closing sometime between 3 A.M. and 5 A.M.

Gothenburg’s nightclubs usually have bars, lounges, casinos, dance-floors as also arrangement for some kind of music. You will definitely like visiting Niva at Kungsportsavenyn 9 but other nightclubs like Castro, Deep Nattklubb, Gretas, Glow Night Club, Go Straight To Hell or ParkLane promise you the same excitement and fun.

Gothenburg Nightlife – Specialty Attractions

The Gothenburg area holds promise for much more. Here you have the legendary jazz club Nefertiti, which is a huge hit with the locals. Konserthuset, Gothenburg’s Concert Hall at Götaplatsen is counted among world’s top-ten concert halls for its superb acoustics. Gothenburg’s opera house, Operan is the other concert venue; ballet shows and operas are also hosted at this 1250-seat modern opera house. Another Gothenburg night-time venue is the City Theatre, Stadsteatern. Mostly the acts/plays presented are in Swedish; hence knowledge of the language is a must if you would like to catch a show.

The biggest draw of Gothenburg nightlife is Casino Cosmopool (at Packhusplatsen 7). You can participate in popular poker tournaments but for that you will need to be at least 20.
