Address: Kontiki, Storängsgatan 2
9pm – 2am
Age: 18 and over
The rucksack-bearing hip hop connoisseurs behind Club Scratch at Pustervik also run a daughter club at Kontiki. This is where die hard lovers of hip hop come to mix with the Kontiki regulars. Always good music, but don’t count on any hits from the radio. This is a place that looks at the past as much as the future.
Address: Orgia, Storgatan 47
11pm – 5am
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.
Address: Stearin, Tredje Långgatan 8
10pm – 2am
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.
Address: Nefertiti, Hvitfeldtsplatsen 6
12.30pm – 4am
Age: 20 and over
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.
House superhero Style of Eye from Stockholm pays a visit. DJ Nibc will be warming things up.
