Went to this place one night with friends. Just an ordinary pub which serves a good variety of beers. A bit too noisy for me. Nothing compared to an English pub.

If you've read any of Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy books, the name Sodermalm is ingrained in your mind. He was inspired by the neighborhood while writing the books, so walking around, you can see inspiration for Lisbeth Salander's house, the Millennium offices, and Mikael Blomkvist's...More

A unique mix of grotesque 1960s concrete urban vision
and cosy historical Swedish brick houses, Slussen has
become one of Stockholm’s most architecturally edgy
and controversial neighborhoods. Plans to rebuild the
area have been on the agenda for decades, however, so
far no agreement could be reached, which is the reason
