LGBT-friendly Mälarpaviljongen on Norrmälarstrand is one of the city's sunniest and most picturesque summer hangouts. Scores of friends and families flock here to eat, drink and soak up some sun as well as to purchase gardening tools in the little shop next to the cafeteria.
With a floating pier and outdoor seating area just next to the strand promenade, Mälarpaviljongen is ideally situated. Since opening this summer hangout has attracted a wide audience with its friendly ambiance and stunning waterfront views. From morning to late evening parents with young children, couples and thirsty groups of friends make their way here to have coffee, eat or enjoy a glass of wine in the blazing summer sun. Surrounded by lush greenery, guests settle down on the large pontoon upon the water or in the pavilion when summer evenings turn a chill.
With emphasis on organic and fair trade produce, Mälarpaviljongen serves both lunch and dinner. The menu features classics such as shrimps, Caesar salad, herring, burgers and kid-friendly pancakes. Food is accompanied with a glass of bubbly, rosé wine or why not an indulgent fluffy pastry. The evening schedule is packed with DJs, summer clubs, Sunday jazz and other events. The adjacent boutique features gardening essentials and interior design products. Mälarpaviljongen has a profound dedication to charity through Regnbågsfonden, which supports LGBT rights worldwide. Proceeds from sales of Mälarpaviljongen's signature wine goes directly to promoting Regnbågsfonden's work.
