Several of these boast fantastic locations near the water, panoramic views or unusual settings. Follow our guide to the Stockholm bars worth a detour.

Roof terrace south of Södermalm
Stockholm isn't exactly spoilt for choice when it comes to rooftop bars, but there are a few. You'll find one of them above the club venue Slakthuset, south of the city near Globen. Their rooftop terrace covers 600 square metres and is decorated with palm trees and sun loungers - the bar serves delicious cocktails best enjoyed to the bass lines of the terrace's club music.
- Slakthuset, Slakthusgatan 6, Johanneshov
Boules and French beer
In a former printing works in Liljeholmen you'll find a leafy indoor park on two levels where you can play boules, look at art and enjoy the Provencal vibes. If you want to quench your thirst with French beer or bubbles while challenging your friends on the boules terrain, this is the place to come.

Brewery with own-brewed beer
Just east of Södermalm in Hammarby Sjöstad you'll find one of the city's few breweries. Nya Carnegiebryggeriet is a beer mecca where, as well as brewing their own various classic kinds of beer with a modern twist, they also hold beer tasting sessions and have a bistro where you can both eat and drink extremely well.
- Nya Carnegiebryggeriet, Ljusslingan 15, Hammarby sjöstad
"Sweensons Gin Tonka", "The Squids Ink" and "The Big Fishes Pine-Line" - if these are cocktail names that speak to you, you'll feel right at home at Poké Burger in Alvik. You'll find Polynesian poké bowls alongside burgers on the menu and the drinks list is also inspired by the same tropical climes.
- Poké Burger Alvik, Gustavlundsvägen 149E, Bromma
Landet on Telefonplan has been a popular watering hole for both locals and visitors for many years. There's a mingle-friendly bar in the dining room where you can have a beer, a glass of wine or a cocktail - standing up or perched on a bar stool. There's also an outdoor eating area which is open during the summer months.
