Stockholm nightlife

Publish date: 11 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.

Stockholm has a vibrant club scene with something for every taste and age. You will find everything from casual bars with dance floors to clubs of the highest international standard. In Stockholm, you can dance the night away with a cocktail in hand at the glitzy clubs around Stureplan or check out the latest underground techno and house vibes while letting go to the sounds of the latest house on Södermalm.

During summer the city is suddenly flooded with outdoor clubs and patios where you can dance beneath the stars until sunrise. Summer is also a popular time for day parties, with dance floors already packed in the afternoon.


Before you head out into the night, it may be wise to check the clubs’ websites or social media sites for information on schedules, age restrictions and opening hours, which can vary every night.
