The Swedes love their summertime outdoor activities because for the better part of 9 months out of there year they are covered in snow. In fact, I’m pretty sure I saw remnants of snow there in the middle of July. So when it is nice everyone flocks to the fresh air and hang out for as long as is possible before the frozen tundra returns. I love this aspect and the fact that Stockholm has quite a few roof-top bars that stay open 24/7. If you want to go out at 9 PM or 2 AM, you can and you can do it under the comfort of the summer sky. So here is a tentative list of 5 amazing roof-top bars to visit if you travel there over the summer.
5) Scandic Sjöfartshotellet
From The Website: For a drink with a view we recommend Scandic Sjöfartshotellet near Slussen. Sit down and enjoy your glass of champagne in the company of the Stockholm waterfront.
From The Website: Party like a rock star in the old industrial slaughterhouse area near Globen. The 600-square-meter terrace is a summer night watering hole for club kids and hipsters.
3) Södra Bar
From The Website: Take the stairs from Södra Teatern at Mosebacke and enter the terrace offering the most stunning view of Stockholm. The bar inside is just as spectacular, with its original decor from the last century. Enjoy live music several times a week with a good mix of styles.
2) Selma Cityspa
From The Website: Selma Cityspa, a branch of the highly regarded Selma Spa in Värmland, is located at the top of the Clarion Sign Hotel. They offer spa treatments, gym, sauna and a popular outdoor pool and bar on the roof terrace.
1) Urban Deli Takbaren
From The Website: The popular restaurant concept Urban Deli has expanded with a roof top bar at Sveavägen. At the 9th floor you find the green art park. Go for the food, the drinks, the view, the sculptures or just the total experience.
