With three locations, Urban Deli is a firm favourite with locals. If you’re on Södermalm head to Nytorget and grab a drink while enjoying a deli platter. If you’re in the heart of the city the Sveavägen location is a new hotspot, with the rooftop bar a particular favourite.

After work at Swing by Golfbaren – delicious food, great drinks, and fun mini golf

Food, drink, and a good hangout is nice, but what takes your after work in Stockholm to the next level is to add a fun activity. And then Swing by Golfbaren in Vasastan – Stockholm’s best facility for indoor mini-golf – has everything you need. Here you and your party are offered an unbeatable combination of mini-golf, food, and drink in a cozy art deco style room with a friendly atmosphere and top-class service. And it’s as far from a traditional sports bar as you can get.

After you’ve proclaimed the winner of the mini-golf, you can sit in the spacious dining room and enjoy US-inspired fine dining such as tuna taco, lobster roll, and pickled tofu. If you’re in the mood for some simpler food, there’s also a bar where you can enjoy fantastic street food and cold beer. And, of course, everything else when it comes to drinks. In short – Swing by Golfbaren has everything you and your colleagues or friends could ever want for your after work.
