Address: Berns, Berzelii Park

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.

80s

Address: Riddarkällaren, Södra Riddarholmshamnen 19

10pm - 3am

100 kronor

Age: 18 and over

Enjoying its 11th year on the Stockholm clubscape, 80s has once again switched venues and decided to establish itself at the large Riddarkällaren venue for the foreseeable future.

The concept is of course the same as it has always been: all sorts of eighties music. From synth pop to indie, goth, rock, Italian disco, chart hits and more or less any name you can recall from the pink decade.

So for goodness sake don't forget to dress up in your eighties gear.

A black hairsprayed fringe or pink leg-warmers will also do the trick.

The club's residents go by the names DJ Life and Pauli. There are occasional special guests and 80s also sometimes holds tribute evenings for a particular eighties icon or band.

Tonight

A visit from DJ legend Håkan Lidbo in praise of the year 1982, along with DJ Loco from Breakfast Club (who wasn't even born then). Resident DJ Life and Pauli Sudra will of course also be doing their thing.

Blondie

Address: Knast, Upplandsgatan 7

6pm - 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.

Tonight

Blondie Ghost Party with a Halloween theme (of course!) with a warm reception guaranteed for the best costume. DJs Dean and Aron will be setting the mood from 6pm.

DC Metro

Address: Metró, Götgatan 93

10pm - 3am

80 kronor (60 kronor with DC gold card)

Age: 20 and over

Building on its successes at Snaps and Sugar Bar (as well as earlier hits at Allhuset and Kolingsborg), Klubb Democrazy is broadening its empire still further. The club continues with its winning formula of indie, electro, hits from the eighties and nineties and other stuff you can dance to at Metró, located at the Skanstull end of Götgatan. Every second Friday the club will do its thing with resident DJs Mean Mr Mustard and Inverted mind.

Four of the city's most diligent DJs combine their loving hearts in a bid to bring pop back to the dance floor.

Terry Ericsson, Lång-Kalle, Miriam Pemberton and Magdalena Lublin hold their LOVE club every second Friday on both floors of the ever popular Marie Laveau - up in the bar and down on the sweaty dancefloor.

Aside from the residents, there will also be wonderful guests playing favourites from four decades of pop.
