Stockholm Nightlife, Sweden

When in Stockholm, you will find that the nightlife here is very much different from its daytime lifestyle. The reserved people of Stockholm know how to enjoy their nights and just change the city from a city into a party place at night. There are bars and cafes here that offer nightlife entertainment that is no less than that of the nightlife in Paris and London.

The center of nightlife attraction is found in the business and entertainment district of Stockholm, Stureplan. Some of the most popular nightclubs here are the Laroy, Plaza, Koket, East, Spy Bar, Pst! and Sturehof.

In addition to night clubs, there is a large selection of music venues of varied sizes and tastes in Stockholm. If you are young, or young at heart, make a visit to Sodermalm, which is south of the city and offers you a younger, different and bohemian atmosphere.

Entertainment nightlife scenes of Stockholm

There are independent entertainment scenes and restaurants in neighborhoods like Vasastan and Kungsholmen. There are also numerous discotheques and pubs to keep you entertained in Stockholm, like in the entertainment districts of Kungsgatan. Besides all this wild nightlife entertainment, Stockholm also offers clubs with specific musical focus if you are looking for something soothing and relaxing while in Stockholm.

Hotellet, Godot, Grodan and Ostermalm are the best classical cocktail bars of Stockholm while Mondo and Debaser are clubs with a working class atmosphere. Cocktails are a must when in Stockholm, where there are great bartenders who can mix a great martini.

Rules to follow when in Stockholm

Stockholm is a city that lives not only during the weekend nights, but there’s activity throughout the week nights. There is a lot to keep you busy at night in Stockholm, however there is a drawback, which is its prices.

Weekends and Wednesday nights are active nights where there are lots of lines to wait in to have a great time, and where you have to pay huge entrance fees to enter live music venues. With all these lines and fees, you have to be ready to face all this with a comfortable dress and a warm grin.

The people of Stockholm are rather strange and have some rules to follow to enjoy a night here. Without a sense of humor, you may end up bored in Stockholm. Moreover, you have to be specific when presenting yourself here as people of Stockholm treat you based on your presentation. If you bear these points in mind, and visit the right places, you will surely have a rocking nighttime in Stockholm.
