This Södermalm institution has been around since 1937. Rival Bar & Bistro embodies Art Deco glamour with rich red velvet trimmings and shiny brass fixtures. With its prime location and welcoming ambiance, Rival appeals to a bustling crowd of locals and hotel guests alike.
Settle down in the intimate booths and savour the kitchen's take on classic bistro dishes. Come the weekend, Rival's brunch buffet is infinitely popular; the offering includes everything from steak tartar and American pancakes to Bloody Marys.
Rival offers a slightly more sophisticated bar scene with artisanal cocktails, multiple vintages and microbrewery beer as well as a simple bar menu with lighter bites to eat. Djs play music during the weekend. And the adjacent Rival Scen boasts 700 seats and performances every day.
