Vasastan: upcoming district for dining and shopping

bibblanPeople who are looking for small antique stores and intimate independent boutiques or want to drink and dine in a district with the locals should make a beeline for Vasastan. There are three strips:

– Rörstrandsgatan and surrounding side streets.

– Odengatan via the new Sven-Harrys art gallery in Vasaparken, to Odenplan and the surrounding Norrtullsgatan and Upplandsgatan.

– Odengatan via Asplund’s famous Stockholm City Library to Roslagsgatan and surrounding streets.

The owners of the popular restaurants Sturehof, Teatergrillen, and Riche are opening their fourth – and biggest so far – restaurant at Sturegatan 6 on Stureplan. Like the others, the dining room will be surrounded by two bars – one a classic cocktail bar and the other a bit trendier. The concept also includes a small market hall with a bakery, orangery, deli counter, gourmet shop, and an ice cream parlor.
The food concept – this time Italian in Swedish translation – was developed in partnership with Swedish celebrity chef Tommy Myllimäki. The interior was designed by Swedish designer Jonas Bohlin.

Urban Deli is a restaurant, bar, deli and food store in the heart of style-conscious SoFo. Gay friendly and very popular among the locals! At Nytorget Urban Deli you can shop and eat food from early morning till evening.

If you enjoy bar hopping, just cross the street and you’ll find the cozy lesbian owned restaurant and bar Roxy

I’ve blogged long enough now for you guys to get my “Things to do in Stockholm on a sunny-/rainy- day and In between” thing, so from now on I’ll skip the “In Stockholm” part in the headlines and keep it more simple and short. Part 4 of “Things to do on a sunny day” – is ice-cream. A summer without ice-cream can’t really be called real summer.

I’ve picked four special ice-cream vendors in Stockholm. “Galna Glassen” in Liljeholmen, in english “The crazy ice-cream”, truly lives up to its name. Step 1: Pick your ice-cream flavor. Step 2: Pick your extras – you can choose between different cookies, candies, nuts or even add a chocolate ball. Step 3: In this last step you have to choose your ice-cream sauce. Be prepared, you will have problems choosing between all good stuff, the offering is huge! When you feel pleased with all your choices the staff  will mix everything together on a cooled marble top and then hand you a fun and crazy ice-cream just the way you wanted it.

Three other places you can’t miss:
18 smaker” (18 flavors) on Mariatorget. Here your ice-cream tastes just as the flavor you’ve ordered, not a trace of artificial tastes.
“Gubbens glass” (The old mans ice-cream) is one of Stockholms most popular ice-cream shops placed at the popular square Nytorget. When the weather is really good you’ll might have to stand in line for half an hour to get your ice-cream here.

If you prefer not to stand in line, walk 30 meters, take a visit to “Urban Deli”, buy a pint of high quality ice-cream and share it with someone special in the park just outside.


You shouldn’t do this if: You hate ice-cream. It’s as simple as that.
You should do this if: You love ice-cream. Just as simple as the previous one.

This is a have to. The Garden of Rosendal (in swedish Rosendals Trädgård) is the place where you can pick and buy herbs and flowers in the green houses and gardens. Take a coffee or something to eat under the apple trees that later on becomes homemade apple pies and swedish äppelmust (apple cider). Work on your suntan laying on the big lawn. Bring your first date here on a romantic picnic. Propose to the greatest love of all surrounded by thousand of flowers. Or enjoy the company of yourself while taking a walk in one of Stockholms most beautiful environments.

You shouldn´t do this if: You have pollen allergy and aren´t prepared to sneeze.
You should do this if: You would like to have an experience out of this world.

Tomorrow Tuesday is THE day for LGBT-lovers and persons. Stockholm Pride kicks off for five amazing days filled with artists, seminars, parties, dumping lover(s) and finding new one(s) during this 120 hour of craziness. If you´re a party person I’ll give you a hint of where to do this – if not you can find the full festival program here.

Club Proud will have it’s première on Stockholm Pride on Tuesday and will give you one party every night during Pride with different music orientation each night. Club Proud is not only here during Stockholm Pride,  it´s a club here to stay – so take the chance to dance your shoes of to great DJ:s when in Stockholm.

On Friday 3/8 all you girls should visit the MOXY-party. The MOXY-parties is know for having the hottest and most talented DJ:s, the best party feeling as well as great serving staff (hot as well of course). This Friday they will give you two dance floors, filled with the latest hits and schlagers (swedish term for our version of Eurovision) and a big terraces outside where you can combine catching some air while enjoying your drink to house and R´n´B music.

For those of you that think competing in looks is the shit you can enjoy gorgeous men on Friday at Mr Gay Sweden at Hamburgerbörs, Jakobsbergsgatan 6, and the female version Miss Gay Sweden on Saturday at Club Proud.


If would would like to pre-party you can’t miss Mälarpaviljongen that has one of Stockholm’s most beautiful view combined with great food and maybe the most important ting – hot LGBT-persons in every corner.

You shouldn’t do this if: You can’t stand people in a good mood.
You should do this if: You look the hottest on a dance floor.
