A staple of Stockholm’s nightlife scene, this buttercup-yellow theatre has been around since the 1800s and is now home to a complex of buzzing bars apt for different occasions. The main chandelier-clad Södra Bar on the second floor hosts gig and club nights, including legendary monthly Hip Hop Karaoke parties, which are a magnet for talented local singers and rappers. The left side of the bar winds into Kristallen, a more intimate salon area with embellished carpets and massive windows looking out towards Stockholm’s medieval Old Town. But for the very best views, head up to the champagne sky bar and terrace on the seventh floor. During summertime, Södra Teatern also opens up a giant beer garden, Mosebacke, with space for 1,000 people. It’s teeming with modish young Stockholmers between April and September.
Time Out tip: Private events can cause the champagne bar and its terrace to close to the public, even on weekends, so call ahead if you’re lusting after that money-shot photo.
