Chances are, if you’re a night owl with a yen for top clubs, you’ll have heard about Sturecompagniet in Stockholm. This legendary venue is home to numerous bars and clubs; it’s like a Russian doll, expanding into ever-more impressive rooms of nightlife, dancing and drinking. One such club-within-a-club is 309.
The emphasis is on dancing here, with RnB and electronica dominating the playlist, interspersed with fun mash-ups and vintage 80s classics, lending the mix a slightly playful, eccentric vibe. And the crowd loves it. Thursday to Sunday every week, 309 is flooded with people, all looking to ring in the weekend. Happy hours of endorphin-heavy dancing are enjoyed here under the sweeping high ceilings of this historic building. You can always pretend a night spent here is part of a cultural tour of the city; Sturecompagniet is one of the oldest nightlife venues in Stockholm, after all.
The drinks at 309 are not too shabby either. Much like the luxe decor, the drinks – from bottles of international bubbles to potent cocktails – are suitably high-end, with a price tag to match. But a glass of something cold and delicious is too good to resist after an hour or two on the dance floor.
