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.
Address: Riddarkällaren, Södra Riddarholmshamnen 19

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.
90s honours the best boy bands of the nineties, including old favourites Take That, Backstreet Boys, East17, Westlife, NKOTB, N'Sync and all the rest of them.
Anders Sewerinsson plays eurodisco on one dancefloor while Anders Olsson & Leif Wademark spin hits from the nineties on the other.
Address: Knast, Upplandsgatan 7
9pm - 1am
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.
Address: Landet, LM Ericssons Väg 27
8pm - 1am
Age: 20 and over
On the first Friday of every month, the two popular Landet clubs Hux Flux and Tuppjuck join forces for a joint club night that goes by the clever name FluxJuck. The Tuppjuck guys keep things on the rocky side, while the Hux Flux posse delivers a dose of electro and pop. Together they invite wonderful live bands and ensure top class DJ action upstairs in the cosy Landet bar out at Telefonplan.

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.
Address: O-Baren, Stureplan 2

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.
