Golf
Lady Hamilton
A perfect location for people who prefer their experience of Scandinavia to be a little more old-fashioned. This Gamla Stan hotel is packed with antiques and even has antique shops for neighbours. Definitely not for fans of minimalism.
Cafe Albert
Busy, lively and located on Birger Jarlsgatan, so it's handy for a post-shopping lunch or a pre-night out rendezvous with friends.

The White Room
Whilst the White Room might look more like a restaurant than a club don't be deceived - the party really kicks off at about 3am. Located just a short walk from the Stureplan and Birger Jarlsgatan try East for dinner and drinks beforehand.
Skiing
Saturnas
Saturnas has a vintage, trendy sensibility, with its neon sign hanging outside over the door, striped walls, and mosaic floor, but the food is anything but retro sourcing all the latest blends of coffee and organic, luxurious foods from around the
J Sealodge Gashaga
This sibling property to the Hotel J at Nacka Strand can be reached by car, ferry, or a charming narrow-gauge railway that leads almost to its door. Perfect for people who want to be out of town and on the edge of the archipelago.
Rica Gamla Stan
Something of a hidden gem, the Rica Hotel Gamla Stan benefits from a location in the heart of the Old Town, but with an interior decor that is not too quaint.
Solidaritet
Solidaritet was brought to the Stockholm nightlife scene by the expert party people behind other popular ventures such as Halv Trappa Plus Gard.
Riddarbageriet
This place is both a shop and a cafe. The bread and cakes made on the premises are all excellent. The small marble-topped tables can often be full but if you can get a space it's a great place for a lunch or a snack. One of the few places in Stockhol
