Hg2 : The Hedonist

Häktet Vänster

With a name that roughly translates to “jail cell on the left,” Häktet Vänster works the speakeasy angle with style. Accessible only via an unmarked doorway off of Hornsgatan, one of Södermalm’s main thoroughfares, this cosy craft cocktail bar (also an offshoot of popular restaurant Häktet) provides thirsty Stockholmers with some of the city’s finest tipples. Working against a backdrop of thrift store lamps and original fixtures that date back to 1761, the bartenders pour a selection of original drinks, including the ever-popular Hey, Pumpkin! (crafted with house-infused pumpkin tequila) and guest drinks from the likes of Geoff Robinson of London’s Happiness Forgets. Not sure if craft cocktails are your thing? Never fear – the bar puts a key emphasis on personalised service, and will also concoct custom cocktails based on guests’ personal tastes.
