Filip Åhman: My 5 favorite places in Hornstull

Publish date: 8 November 2023

Fusion-bistro Forma opened in March 2023, in Hornstull. We had a chat with bar chief Filip Åhman about his go-to places in this bustling part of Södermalm.

The neighborhood of Hornstull is one of Södermalm's liveliest parts. Concentrated in just a few blocks are several restaurants, cafées, bars, a one-screen cinema, a concert venue, and nightclubs. In March 2023 this popular area got a new tenant, as French-Asian bistro Forma served its first diners. The head of its bar, which serves guests until 03 in the morning, is Filip Åhman. We asked Filip about his favorite places on the streets of Hornstull.

Great restaurant and bar. Has a nice vibe and excellent beverages. They're open seven days a week which is a big plus!

Bio Rio
A really cool concept! Both a cinema and a Japanese restaurant. Cool concept! You'll always be treated to a great meal here, before your movie.

Pang Pang
A restaurant and bar run by Hökarängen-based craft brewery Pang Pang. Small, tasty dishes, and great craft beer.

You'll find Stockholm's best place for a summer swim here, thanks to its accessibility. The small island is located in the middle of central Stockholm but still feels like a far-away country-side hamlet.

Laika (Hornhuset, second floor)
Hornhuset features several floors of great drinking and eating. And if you're in a party mood, Laika on the second floor is for you. The crowd is young, and you'll always have a great night.
