This French-sounding gem is located right down at the bottom of the Hotel Savoy. The club has attracted work weary Malmö residents for atmospheric tête à têtes over a glass of red wine. Given that it’s a steakhouse, there are oysters, snails and entrecôte on offer. But you can just as easily go there to enjoy a classic cocktail in the award-winning bar section. By night this is a meting place for the city’s representative’s of bohemian chic, discussing important matters in the glow of candlelight.

What do Daft Punk, Hanson, Stone Roses and Broder Daniel have in common? Maybe not so much at first glance, but they are all artists you can expect to hear at First Class Riot. It’s all about pop music here, with the occasional bit of soul, rock, hip hop slipping through the cracks as the exception that proves the rule.
DJs: Daniel Novakovic & Johan Barrander
Address: Brogatan, Brogatan 12
11pm – 3am
Where Alice in Wonderland hunts a rabbit, club manager Emil Broomé in Wonderland hunts disco. When you’ve finished your botanic experimentation among the fine selection of beers upstairs, it’s time to go down to the cellar, sorry – Wonderland – and hypno-dance to obscure disco. Then it’s time for an after-party with the author with the bushy hair.
Live: Malmö band The Luxe
