Get ready for a night out in Stockholm. Here are some of the most popular clubs in town!

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.

5 classic clubs

Berns – One of Stockholm's oldest nightlife institutions. Has entertained the city with live music, clubs, ballroom parties, and much more, since 1863.

Trädgården/Under Bron – Trädgården, located under the Skanstull bridge, is one of Stockholm's most popular outdoor summer clubs. Under Bron, its sister club, is open all year round.

Södra teatern/Mosebacketerassen – Another classic nightclub, Södra Teatern opened in 1859. Its summer terrace bar offers a great view of central Stockholm.

Debaser – Beloved club and concert venue. Although named after The Pixies' classic track, Debaser doesn't restrict itself to rock music but runs a diverse programming of rock, hip-hop, metal, country, pop, and electronic music.

Fasching – Legendary jazz club in central Stockholm. Besides a schedule of clubs and concerts, Fasching acts as the main venue for the annual Stockholm Jazz Festival.

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.
