Dinner at home8 addresses
Of course, romance doesn't necessarily mean going out on the town. Pick up a few delicacies and maybe some pre-prepared food from one of Stockholm's delis, food halls or restaurants with takeaway. Then all you need is some good music and candlelight.

Opposite Mariatorget you'll find the uber-classic bowling hall Rock & Bowl, which has been around since the Thirties and where bowling mixes with rock music. Disco bowling's also a fun option.
