City Spotlight: Stockholm, Sweden

Written By Sam Murphy on 07/01/2014



A bar under a bridge, Trädgården is the place to spend those long, Scandinavian summer nights. There’s a large outdoor area as well as a club inside with the outdoor area playing host to Daytime Sessions in the Summer. Recently it’s hosted artists like Swedish-Australian duo Say Lou Lou and Danish band Lust For Youth along with sixteen year-old rapper Adam Kanyama.

Under Bron
Under Bron is located in Trädgården under the bridge which can only mean one thing- industrial, sweaty, late-night grooves. Past guests to the club include John Talabot, Ewan Pearson, Mark E and house legend, Jeff Mills. The hipster level is labelled as extreme but by all accounts it’s one of the most forward-thinking clubs in an already forward-thinking city. Time to roll-up those sleeves and get down.

Berns 2.35:1

It “opens to the cool kids who want to party after 11pm” is what Guidepal says about this club, so if you’re a cool cat who likes to groove after a reasonable hour, this is the place for you. Open since 2006, its a small club with a white dancefloor that hosts a pretty spectacular array of DJs. Studio Barnhus co-founder Axel Boman is a frequent here, spinning beats in the basement of the extended Berns establishment.


Debasser runs over three levels with dance floors, bars and stages. As a concert-venue it’s booking some of the most interesting artists around. This year it’s played host to the likes of Schoolboy Q and The War on Drugs with upcoming gigs including A$AP Ferg, Acton Bronson and Azealia Banks.


If you manage how to remember this joint, it will become your Summer hang while in Stockholm. Located on the hill looking over the main city, it’s the perfect place for daytime drinking. By night, you can step inside to a hot and sweaty nightclub and emerge in the early hours of the morning atop a hill in the middle of Stockholm, most likely bloated off Rekorderlig.

F12 Terrassen

F12 Terrassen doubles as restaurant Fredsgatan 12. In the summer months, people take to the outdoor stone staircase of the restaurant, which is transformed into a club and gig venue. It’s open every night during Summer and attracts ridiculously good-looking people so legend goes. In 2014 it’s booked the likes of Little Simz and Fatima Al Qadiri to play proving itself as a chaser of eclectic and experimental artists.


If you’re up for something a little different saunter over to Fasching jazz club. While it’s doesn’t host huge acts, it’s a cosy place where you can find yourself millimeters from the stage. Upcoming gigs include inc. and Jesse Boykins III.
