MELT Bar & Restaurant is an excellent alternative for you’re in the mood for a dinner show in Stockholm, more specifically, a burlesque show. Here you are welcomed into a 1920s-scented restaurant and bar inspired by the Prohibition era in New York – a so-called speakeasy bar, Stockholm’s first. Get ready for world-class entertainment: cabaret evenings with talented singers, dancers, eye-catching costumes (we’re talking things like glitter, feathers, sequins, high heels, corsets, and false eyelashes), acrobats, jugglers, and much more.

Besides the burlesque show, MELT Bar & Restaurant offers luxurious cocktails, eclectic cuisine, and a wonderful atmosphere with fancy decor. In short, you get a unique experience unlike anything else in Stockholm.

If you’re a music fan and like to go to concerts in Stockholm, you probably know about Fasching. Since 1977, it has been a legendary venue for Stockholmers and tourists who love jazz, soul, blues, disco, and hip-hop. Everyone from big stars to unknown talents, Swedish and international, takes the stage almost every night (250-300 concerts are organized annually).

But this iconic concert venue and nightclub also has an excellent restaurant that serves food during the concerts. And buying a food ticket at Fasching’s concerts is a brilliant combination for those who want to enjoy good food and drink along with fantastic live music. The kitchen serves high-quality food, including starters, main courses, and desserts, and vegetarian and vegan options. Music and food are two of life’s highlights, and Fasching delivers a remarkable double.

Hamburger Börs

Dinner show in Stockholm? That probably makes many people think of Hamburger Börs, also called ‘Börsen.’ In this traditional Stockholm scene that has been around for 340 (!) years, many of Sweden’s absolute greatest artists have performed over the years – Lill Lindfors, Cornelis Vreeswijk, Björn Skifs, After Dark, Jerry Williams, Lena Philipsson, Magnus Uggla, and Sanna Nielsen are just some examples. In addition, this entertainment palace has attracted international superstars such as Frank Sinatra, Johnny Cash, and Liza Minnelli.

A rich history, to say the least, and the venue continues to offer world-class stage shows and unforgettable music experiences year after year. Some of the best entertainment Stockholm has to offer to sum it all up. With the entertainment, you can enjoy good food made from the highest quality ingredients plus good drinks, and there’s something for everyone on the menu. If you are visiting Stockholm, a tip is to combine the dinner show with an overnight stay at a hotel. And if you’re nearby on Saturdays and Sundays, you should not miss Hamburger Börs’ brunch.

Golden Hits

Golden Hits is a true classic among restaurants with entertainment in Stockholm. And if you want to experience a fantastic dinner show, this is one of the greatest places to be. They describe their dinner club as a crazy dinner party, Sweden’s funniest, so the bar is set high. Here, people of all ages meet and have a good time together, so bring friends, family, or work colleagues for an evening filled with fabulous shows, music, dance, and joy in the middle of central Stockholm. Whether it’s a birthday, an event with work, or just a regular Friday night, Golden Hits delivers an unbeatable mix of craziness, humor, and warmth. And certainly, a lot of spontaneous dancing.

Of course, the restaurant’s chefs are also in a party mood and offer a three-course menu full of surprises – old classic dishes that got a creative upgrade. The food is served by the show staff, a bunch of skilled artists who know how to create an incredible atmosphere that almost makes the roof lift. And if that’s not enough, Golden Hits also offers Golden Pianos, where you can request songs and have them played as well as karaoke. In addition, they have a popular nightclub where you can party on the dance floor to hits only. The party lasts all night long. Welcome to Stockholm’s – and probably also Sweden’s – funniest restaurant.

M/S Vindhem

Tacos feast at M/S Vindhem

Fancy a dinner with entertainment in Stockholm and at the same time a wonderful boat trip in the world’s most beautiful archipelago? Then the music boat M/S Vindhem is exactly what you need. Here, they’ve been serving food in combination with entertainment at sea since 1987 – a concept that has resonated well with both Stockholmers and tourists. Popular, festive, and full-packed, as they describe it themselves.

At M/S Vindhem, it’s always shrimp time. And considering that they’ve offered seafood cruises for several decades, you can be sure that they deliver a wonderful food and music experience, including unbeatable views. Unlimited shrimp (alternative tacos), freshly baked bread, butter, and aioli. For dessert, a well-filled cheese platter. What more could you ask for? And, of course, there are also options if you’re vegetarian, vegan, or allergic (let them know in advance). Festive cover bands deliver the entertainment, and you can enjoy hit song after hit song from the rock and pop genres, and the tempo then increases more and more during the evening. So resisting the dance floor will not be easy… In December, you shouldn’t miss M/S Vindhem’s popular Christmas buffet cruise with classic Christmas food favorites and troubadours.

Norra Brunn

If you want to combine good food and drink with a comedy club, you should head to Norra Brunn, Sweden’s most famous stand-up comedy restaurant and filming location for Swedish TV’s humor show ‘Släng dig I brunnen.’ Here, Sweden’s biggest and best stand-up comedians perform after dinner. And to finish eating before they start is a must – otherwise, it would be impossible to get a bite between the laughter… Showtime is 8 pm Tuesday to Saturday, and note that the restaurant has an entrance fee.

The menu has something for all tastes – from ‘Wallenbergare’ and salmon fillet to vegetarian tortellini and vegan chili. And, of course, there’s a wide range of tasty starters and desserts if you’re extra hungry. Why not go for the popular three-course show menu and add a drink package with beer, wine, coffee, and an after-dinner drink. A good laugh and a good meal – a hard-to-beat combination that makes Norra Brunn one of Stockholm’s best dinner show restaurants.

Lasse i Gatan

A pirate restaurant in Old Town? Sure, why not? At least if it’s as festive as Lasse i Gatan. From Västerlånggatan, you take the stairs down to the restaurant’s beautiful and ancient vaults, where you travel back in time to the 18th century. Here they do a grand-scale celebration of Lars Gathenhielm (who was called Lasse i Gatan) and his wife Ingela’s unlikely successes as hijackers at sea. Good food with a piece of Swedish history to sum it all up. Behind the restaurant’s concept is the Swedish artist Martin’ E-Type’ Erikson, who also founded the nearby Viking restaurant Aifur.

This restaurant and bar with a pirate theme offers, to say the least, a different dining experience – from the room’s decorations and table setting to the live music. In addition, both staff and regulars have contemporary clothing so that everyone get the authentic feeling of being part of the hijacker couple’s crew. The food is not as 18th century-inspired but consists of more contemporary dishes such as charcuterie tray, Toast Skagen, char fillet, steak, cheeseburger, and risotto. The drinks menu has everything you need – sparkling, champagne, red wines, white wines, beer, rum, and non-alcoholic.
