That thrilling experience is exactly what you’ll get at Questrooms, an escape room in Stockholm that you’ll find near Medborgarplatsen in Södermalm. When they started in 2014, they were Sweden’s first escape game, so Questrooms certainly knows what a great escape room should look like.

Melt Bar

Melt bar – a place where magic and entertainment meet great cocktails

MELT Bar transports you back to the wild and most forbidden entertainment world of the 1920s. Not only is it Stockholm’s only burlesque bar, but it also has the feel of a top secret speakeasy. They describe themselves as a speakeasy and cabaret in the heart of Stockholm.

The wild world of entertainment we’re talking about is of course the American Prohibition era, when alcohol in all its forms was strictly forbidden. This is stubbornly defied at MELT Bar. For example, their punchbowls are served in what are supposed to be tea or coffee cups to fool the liquor police.

The main role is of course played by burlesque. Singing, dancing, acrobatics, jugglers and secret rooms – at MELT Bar the show practically never ends. On Thursdays, they serve up their very own version of bingo with a burlesque twist, while Fridays and Saturdays are filled with all kinds of performances, not least of the spontaneous variety.

At MELT Bar, you can’t help but get swept up in the lively atmosphere, although the well-stocked cocktail menu doesn’t hurt. Adding to the effect is the setting of black, gold and red in the winding floors.

In the midst of the wild and adventurous, there is also a palpable warmth. The atmosphere is friendly and it really feels like a lively party with good friends. And it’s not uncommon for visitors to dress in period clothing to take the experience to the next level. We fully understand them.
