Nega Flô

Address: Kontiki, Storängsgatan 2

Open to 2am

50 kronor

Age: 18 and over


Vadini and his friends invite you to a Brazilian party and Kontiki with much more than samba on the agenda. Hip-hop, funk, house, MPB, samba reggae and a Brazilian band on stage. It's possible to extract caipirinha from the plants on the walls. As good as it gets!


Address: Orgia, Storgatan 47

11pm - 5am

Free entry

Age: 23 and over


Orgia is the watering hole we are all drawn to when everywhere else closes - too early as usual - and our appetite for crowds, alcohol and unexpected encounters has not yet been sated. This is where the Aveny and hipster crowds meet in an environment that is anything but relaxed, and where you have to hold on tight to your 62 kronor beer to avoid getting it right down your cleavage. The commercial techno that generally emanates from the decks is easy to enjoy.

Stearin Fredagar

Address: Stearin, Tredje Långgatan 8

10pm – 2am

Free entry

Tredje Långgatan is not at all like Andra Långgatan, despite the fact that it is literally just a stone’s throw away. This is something you realize as soon as you walk through the door at Stearin. The beer is expensive, tasty and probably Italian. The people there have cut their hair and got a job. The seats have comfy covers and nobody spits moist snuff at the ceiling. Can you handle it? If you can, then come here on Friday or Saturday. From 10 o’clock onwards relatively well-known DJs play groovy but laidback house.

Styrbord Babord

Address: Styrbord Babord, Kungsportsplatsen 1

10pm - 3am

60 kronor

Age: 23 and over


Styrbord Babord is the highly appropriate name given to Uppåt Framåt's Aveny-based spawn. For those of you not acquainted with the place, we can inform you that it floats on actual water. It's a bit like a barge equipped with a never-ending party, champagne, exciting new dance music and an audience that is mixed and positive.

The Eye

Address: Nefertiti, Hvitfeldtsplatsen 6

12.30pm - 4am

90 kronor

Age: 20 and over


Story continues below…

If The Eye were Christianity, electronic music would be God, Nefertiti heaven and Fridays Christmas Eve. Saturday mornings would be purgatory and guilt-tinged day-after text messages the forgiveness of sins. The bouncer would be called Saint Peter and beer would be the sacramental wine. As it happens, The Eye is not particularly God-fearing club but it's still possible to experience hell there in the form of bloody long queues. This can be easiest avoided by arriving in good time.

Uppåt Framåt

Address: Uppåt Framåt. Magasinsgatan 3

6pm - 2am

40 kronor

Age: 23 kronor


Fridays at Uppåt Framåt are usually packed full of people circulating, dancing in desperation and sometimes launching an attack on the wall of flesh in order to cool off at the bar. Always busy, always a good atmosphere. Tech house, electro and pop.


Reebok Diamond Party.
