This neighbourhood restaurant is popular for their ambitious small dishes, but the bar is also worth a visit, post-work and weekend drinks. The drinks menu includes a range of selected wines, craft beers and their own signature cocktails.
MälarpaviljongenNorr Mälarstrand 64, Kungsholmen
Popular summertime hangout
Sun-worshippers flock to Mälarpaviljongen during the summer months to enjoy the waterfront views, cocktails and each-other's company on the floating pontoon. Everyone from groups of friends in the mood to party to families and post-work drinkers gather here.
Kungsholmens VinbarFleminggatan 62B, Kungsholmen
An oenophile's delight
As the name suggests, Kungsholmens Vinbar is passionate about wine. They vary their wine selection and food menu every day in order to serve the best the season has to offer. Drop by for a glass of wine and some bar good when the mood takes you, or why not join one of their wine tastings?
OrangerietNorrmälarstrand kajplats 464, Kungsholmen
Fancy sipping a cocktail while looking out over Riddarfjärden? Then Orangeriet is the place to go. Get comfy in an armchair or on a sofa and order something to sip on before a meal at Trattorian next door, or just stay put and settle in for the evening. In the summer months you can drink al fresco and when it's chillier you can warm up next to the open fire indoors.
Combine hanging out at the bar with a fun activity at Boulebar in Rålambshovsparken, where the boules balls and French food and drinks flow freely. In the summer you can sit outside in the evening sun with views over the park and the water. In the colder months, move inside to the newly-built orangery which lights up the winter darkness.
