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 further notice. No alcohol is to be served after 8 pm (20:00). This might lead to some restaurants and bars closing earlier than usual, or 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.
