We’re dreaming of summers spent on sunny terraces.
The weather is starting to heat up in Stockholm (for the most part), and we’re all beginning to get excited about the summer. When we think about the warmer months, many of us envision ourselves sitting on beautiful terraces, sipping tasty drinks, and enjoying wonderful views of Stockholm. At these bars, you can do just that. They’re perfect for lifting the spirits (literally and figuratively) and blowing off a bit of steam after a long week at work.

📍Brunkebergstorg 4, 111 51
If you’re looking for a place to lounge around in the sun, then Tak is perfect. It has a huge rooftop terrace, complete with an amazing view of the city. The decor is simple and refined – a mixture of Swedish and Japanese design that culminates in something very minimalist and elegant. Try one of their delicious cocktails if you visit, you won’t regret it, and check out their tasty menu on the website.
📍Långholmsgatan 15B, 117 33
Laika is the place to be if you want to let off some steam. It’s usually really busy and incredibly vibrant – full of interesting things to see and do whilst you listen to some live music and snack on yummy pizza. There are comfy sofas to lounge around on, and there’s even a huge swing that you can play on. Laika is also a brilliant place to watch football, but it’s first come first served so you need to get there early if you’re planning on watching a match there. Head out to the terrace on sunny days and soak it all in. Check out the website for more information.
📍Stortorget 7, 111 29
This fantastic bar was once one of the city’s oldest pharmacies, and this makes for a fascinating interior, full of references to the building’s former function. Tiny apothecary drawers that used to hold ingredients for making pharmaceuticals stand behind the bar, which serves drinks infused with delicious and nutritious herbs. It’s such a comfortable place to hang out, and even more comfortable in the summer when you can sit by the water on their lovely terrace. Check out the drinks menu on their website.
📍Norr Mälarstrand 64, 112 35
Mälarpaviljongen is such a pretty bar, decorated heavily with beautiful plants, flowers and fairy-lights. It’s one of the only bars that actually floats atop a jetty, and you can literally sit on the beautiful terrace with your toes dipped into the beautiful clear water below. It is only open between April and October, but it is well worth a visit in the warmer months. Check out the website for more details.
5. Stockholm Under Stjärnorna
📍Brunkebergstorg 2-4, 111 51
Stockholm Under Stjärnorna sits 50 metres above street level, and provides stunning views of the city. Everything here has been fine-tuned to provide the most comfortable, exciting and entertaining evening under the stars. Of course, things will have to run a bit differently thins year, but once summer rolls around we know we’ll be sat on their amazing rooftop terrace, watching the world go by.
