The Local's Stockholm nightlife guide: Gamla Stan

Share this article

11:34 CEST+02:00

A small, historical island located in heart Stockholm, Gamla Stan is a very touristic area, as guests to the city flock to see the Royal Palace and picturesque cobblestone streets. The area isn't particularly known for wild clubbing per se, but has a more relaxed and quiet feel to its cozy cafes and restaurants.

You will find some lounge bars here, like Romana Bakfickan Bar & Lounge, where a sleek interior makes it an upscale place to sip cocktails. If you're really in the mood for rock music and dancing, head to Medusa Rock Bar, where classic rock hits blair well into the night. After a long day at work or sight-seeing, Gamla Stan is a wise choice to head for a meal and drink, though with its touristic nature, prices can also be high.

Our guide will give you tips on the area's hottest restaurants, where, after you've finished your final bite, you can drink well into the evening. If you're able to snag a street-side table or spot on a terrace, the island is a lovely spot to sip on drinks, watching the streets of the island where Stockholm was first founded in the 13th century.
