Stockholm weekend going out guide: Friday, Oct 24
17:38 CEST+02:00
The Local hooks up with entertainment experts Djungeltrumman for tips on where to go out this weekend.

2.35;1

Address: Berns, Berzelii Park

9pm – 4am

150 kronor

Age: 23 and over

Website

The new Berns has undergone a major facelift and has recently reclaimed its undeniable place as one of the city's biggest, best and most ambitious nightclubs.

Walk in through the hotel entrance, go down the stairs and you will discover a gigantic floor space with more than enough room for dancing, getting to know people and hanging around in the lounge in a nice dark environment with the freshest clientele in town.

In terms of music, Berns plays everything from hip-hop to house, jazz and soul. There's also a major focus on art exhibitions, film viewings and other visual treats.

90's

Address: Riddarkällaren, Södra Riddarholmshamnen 19

10pm – 3am

100 kronor

Age: 18 and over

Website

The gang behind the incredibly popular nostalgia club 80's has now jumped forward a decade and is throwing parties in honour of the joyful nineties.

Expect hit-filled nineties music on three dancefloors in the venue that once housed indie mecca Metropolis. Everything from eurodisco and boy band hits to the very best nineties indie.

So comb up your hair, pull on your stone-washed jeans and get down to Riddarkällaren for an orgy of ninetiesness.

Blondie

Address: Knast, Upplandsgatan 7

9pm - 1am

Free entry

Age: 18 and over

Down among the graffiti-covered stone walls, the candlelit darkness, thick dry ice, red leather sofas and curious images of skeletons and popes, Stockholm legend Tommie X opens the doors every Friday night to his wonderfully decadent club, Blondie.

The club is a coming together of the gays and the fag hags, the media old timers and the nineteen year old barflies, bewigged anorexic monsters and confused but happy indie poppers and fashionistas.

There is room for everybody here, whether you want to dance 'til you sweat to life-affirming eurodisco or sit and make out in the black sofas.

DC Chigurh

Address: Sugar Bar, Kammakargatan 9

7pm - 1pm

60 kronor

Age: 18 and over

Website

The ever active and ambitious Klubb Democrazy has launched a new club with the somewhat odd title DC Chigurh, housed at Sugar Bar -- the little club mecca in the city centre.

Each club night will be graced by two live bands, appearing on stage at 10pm and 11pm, as well as some carefully selected DJs playing music conducive to the dancefloor and the ears. Guests arriving early (7pm - 9pm) will be treated to a vegetarian buffet of the Persian variety.

Joy Box

Address: Restaurang 1900, Regeringsgatan 66

9pm - 2am

Free entry

Age: 20 and over

Website

Warm feelings, mystique and rhythm abound as techno club Joy Box takes the helm at the cosy cocktail bar in turn of the century restaurant 1900 every second Friday this autumn.

Various guest DJs play techno, electro and other music conducive to hanging out at the bar, which is owned by TV chef Niklas Ekstedt.

Tonight

MINZ from Amsterdam pays a visit with some dreamy, melodic and minimalist techno. Residents Niklas and John will be warming things up.

Julia

Address: Restaurangen, Oxtorgsgatan 14

9pm - 1am

Free entry

Age: 20 and over

Website

The media crowd's favourite hang-out is back. After a summer expedition to Spymlan and earlier escapades at Riche, Berns and Tranan, Fredrik Virtanen and Tom Pyl have finally found their way back home to safety.

Every Friday the media elite makes a pilgrimage to the bar section of Melker Andersson's very fine Restaurangen where they listen to soft rock, west coast pop, mature soul, friendly pop, FM rock, singalong anthems and camp fire standards. Fredrik and Tom are often joined by guest DJs who are not entirely unknown.

Tonight

Media foxes Niklas Eriksson and Klas Ekman will be dropping by.

Klubb Gås

Address: Bar 122, Folkungagatan 122

10pm - 3am

30 kronor

Age: 18 and over

Website

The Gås (goose) guys continue to spread the word of rock on Fridays and Saturdays at Bar 122, just a bit away from Folkungagatan.

Resident DJs - Mr Jubran on Fridays and Julius Berlin on Saturdays - keep things moving with a heady blend of rock, garage, punk rock, '77 punk, stoner, and indie rock.

O-Baren

Address: O-Baren, Stureplan 2

9pm - 2am

Free entry

Age: 21 and over

Website

O-Baren located right at the back of the luxury Sturehof restaurant, is like a little oasis in the middle of Stureplan. Here you can be certain of avoiding DJ Bobo, Basshunter and champagne-spraying brats. Instead Lorenzo and Nicke at the bar always make sure there are some top notch DJs playing some of the best rock, indie, electro, soul, house and disco in town.

Tonight

Bar boss Nikla Eriksberger receives a visit from bar boy Marco Hellberg for an evening of rock.
