Address: Berns, Berzelii Park

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.
Pom Pom pays a visit to the cellar with Stefski and Agge.

Every second Saturday they get the dancefloor moving to the baggiest Madchester, singalong Britpop and ravetastic acid house for all the Stockholm geezers in need of more excitement in their lives.
They have also brought over a steady flow of celebrities from England, including previous guests Mani, Peter Hook, Carl Barat, Dot Allison and Ian McCulloch.
Residents’ night. Robert Plaszczyk and Magnus Carlson play the best Britpop in town.

O-Baren located right at the back of the luxury Sturehof restaurant, is like a little oasis in the middle of Stureplan.

There's the unpretentious, intimate and energetic Piggly Wiggly.
And, finally, there's the club collective and music blog 24:Hours.
Address: Bonden Bar, Bondegatan 1
8pm - 1am

Youth began life during the summer down in the classic Bonden Bar in the heart of Söder. The club pops up every now and again with various themes and always has the very best indie and techno streaming out of the speakers.
Club organizers and residents Isabella Tedhammar and Anna Danielsson always invite a guest to join them at the decks.
Youth celebrates a couple of Saturday night test runs at Bonden with guest DJ duo Lili & Sushi. Anna and Bella will of course also be DJing.
