Looking for late night eats in Stockholm? While there are plenty of hotdog (korv) kiosks around the city why not dive into something more substantial, like a steak or a fish pie or some Asian? Or, if you insist on a hotdog, make sure you go to the best korv kiosks in town (hint: we think it’s at Medborgarplatsen!)
Stockholm is a city in the midst of a foodie renaissance and that includes late night eats. Let’s dig in!
A Stockholm staple for nearly 110 years, Kvarnen is a traditional Stockholm beer hall that happens to serve up some pretty amazing food. And the food? Classic Swedish fare with a modern twist, which means hearty, tasty, and sometimes surprising. That the beer selection is among the best in the city and the setting cosy yet lively makes Kvarnen a place you’ll return to again and again. And again.

Sleek, modern, and boasting not just a brilliantly bohemian atmosphere but also boasting some seriously killer food, Rolfs Kök launched in 2003 and quickly became a Stockholm favourite, both for late night eats and all day long. Serving up an eclectic menu that includes everything from snails to oysters to pig’s trotters, this eatery is for those who like a bit of adventure on their plate – and for those who know that nothing tastes bad if it’s properly prepared.

Meat – do you like it? And if you like it do you like it best when it’s hot off a sizzling grill? Well, Grill – as the name suggests – has what you’re looking for: meat and plenty of it, all prepared with an astonishing variety of grill techniques. The restaurant, which has been around since 2003, has nine different sections, each with its own character, from Tivoli to the Library. The menu changes regularly but what doesn’t change is the dedication to quality and taste – and one of the best atmosphere’s in town.

Certainly you’ll find a burger on the menu but you’ll also find beet root soup, Bourbon ribeye and duck confit. Akkurat also has one of Stockholm’s finest beer and whiskey selections, and there’s live music late in the evenings.

Supper is all about family, community, and South American flavours. Located below street level in Stockholm’s Vasastan neighbourhood, Supper sports a slight industrial edge. The bar in the middle of the room brings everyone together over food and drink, while the open kitchen serves up homemade charizo, vegetarian tacos, and salted pork belly. The wine and beer lists perfectly compliment the food.
