How about clubbing in an opera house, mingling under the stars on a terrace or lounging on a boat deck sipping drinks? Stockholm has trendy nightlife, from cool, sophisticated Stureplan to the bohemian clubs and bars of Södermalm and Gamla Stan. In the summertime, the city’s nightlife moves outdoors and revellers take in long, light nights when the sun never sets. These are Stockholm’s party neighbourhoods: Stureplan In Stockholm, Stureplan is the symbol of luxury and indulgence. This is where the young, rich, famous and beautiful hang out. Lines are long for the most popular clubs, and many have selective entry. Arrive early. Södermalm Rock, reggae, rockabilly, bohemian, electronic, gay or lesbian. Södermalm blends all styles. This is a more relaxed, less expensive alternative to the luxury of Stureplan. Nightlife spots are primarily in Slussen, Mariatorget, Nytorget and Medborgarplatsen. Gamla Stan Nightlife in Gamla Stan is characterized by small, intimate pubs with traditional interiors. Here you will find several bars with an older scene and offering live music; bars with a younger crowd have popped up in recent years. LGBTQ Stockholm has no specifically gay neighbourhood. You can show your love openly. Locales flying rainbow flags are sprinkled throughout the city, but most gay bars, clubs and restaurants are in Gamla Stan and Södermalm.
