[UPDATE 2014.05.09] You voted and the results are in! The top bar in Stockholm is………………………………
Nestled in the hipster-trendy district of Södermalm, Ugglan attracts flocks of millennials from all corners of Stockholm on a regular basis. A 10 minute trek from Medborgarplatsen is punctuated by 1500sqm of endless underground space where booze, games and counter-culture are plenty. Friendly people and affordable prices are only part of what sets this place apart from the average bar in Stockholm. Whether its arcades or shuffleboard – boule or table tennis – billiards or boardgames – microbrew beer or simply enough space to get your ‘groove’ on, Ugglan has something for everyone. Give it a try – you won’t be disappointed!
Rounding out the top 5 are (in order) are: Trädgården, Bagpipers, Monks and Morfar Ginkos.
…..what are you waiting for?
Laboratory life has scarred you. Hours of pipetting, microscopy and blotting have left your thumbs sore, eyes droopy and mind numb. As we emerge from our laboratory caves, exhaustion sweeps over us: “Frozen pizza for dinner tonight…voluntary anti-social confinement…and Big Bang Theory until I fall asleep.” Sound familiar?
But this weekend is different. You will reward yourself. You will muster up the energy. You will go out. Why? Because I have seen the light at the end of the tunnel….and its an ice-cold beer glistening in the spring sun. Yes, that hoppy delight is waiting for you…longing for you…calling for you!
But where to go? That PhD/Post-doc stipend doesn’t stretch as far in Stocholm given the high price of alcohol here. The usual Stureplan-type places aren’t your thing anymore. Standing up for hours isn’t an appealing scenario. FEAR NOT! Whatever the underlying cause of your hesitation may be, I’m confident there is a place for you. Here is a list of some of my favorite bars/pubs/lounges/etc. Vote for your favorite and spread the love. CHEERS!
