Great drinks & live music

Publish date: 19 November 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Swedish government has restricted the sale of alcohol in bars and restaurants, until May 17. All restaurants and bars must close at 8.30 pm (20.30). This might lead to some restaurants and bars not opening at all.

Whether the jazz band plays a song that grabs your attention or you're floored by the virtuosity of the resident pianist, a bar is, in fact, a great place to discover new music. As the focal point for the Swedish music scene, Stockholm has no shortage of bars that offer live music to create a dynamic and unforgettable ambiance.
