Treat yourself to an innovative blend of flavors and ingredients during your night out in Stockholm. Here are some of the city's most celebrated drink bars.

The craft of mixing drinks has become a hot topic in Stockholm. In what is popularly called mixology, you'll find the latest flavor trends and creative combinations. Imagine, for instance, jasmine tea, or perhaps a hint of bacon in your glass.

The variety of bars also makes an eclectic mix, with a mood and atmosphere for everyone. Relaxed and laid back? A bar called Gemma or 20hundra5 might be for you. Exotic and tropical? Tiki Room or Surfers should be right up your alley. Elegantly casual? Coquetel Social or Americain has just the thing. You'll also find niche bars like Hernö Gin Bar where gin is the main ingredient in most glasses or experimental workshops like Pharmarium where the flavor profile of your beverage dictates the ingredients on your dinner plate.

Stockholm's bartenders have also started to gain international attention. Lucy's Flowershop on Östermalm recently made its way onto William Reed's list of the world's 50 best bars (coming in at 49), while Tjoget and Röda Huset are waiting in the wings; at 71 and 78 respectively.

Here are a few bars that are making a splash!
