Manjit Devgun: When people mentioned Stockholm, the word beautiful is certain to follow. The people, the medieval old town, the abundant park land and of course the city itself spread out over 14 islands with numerous water ways close to 60 bridges and a modern harbor, Stockholm is simply stunning. Add to that a progressive life style, great food, shopping and entertainment over 75 museums well famous Swedish design not to mention the Nobel Prize and it simply hard to be this great Scandinavian capital.
In summer with this full three hours of darkness each night Stockholm is a daylight lovers dream, but in winter there can be as little as five hours of daylight. This might explain why the Five Star Nordic Light Hotel design dedicates itself to the celebration of light.
Emilie Bergsten: The idea of the hotel was to give our guest a genuine local experience and our inspiration is the Nordic Lights.
Manjit Devgun: Gorgeously spare and refined with clean Scandinavian line and featuring its own lighting direction the Nordic Light offers and manipulates light to suit your need. The lobby is bathe in changing colors throughout the day. The rooms offer guest the ability to program their own lighting effects and some rooms, the mood suites offer even more. Guest may want to indulge in special infrared ultraviolet and other mood elevating light treatments.
The hotel offers a restaurant and several bars with the huge selection of American wines. The light bar and lounge just off the lobby offers special evenings of club music ranging from ambient to up tempo electronic.
There are so many unique shopping opportunities in Stockholm, fashion, interior designs, Swedish crystal but how about chocolate? A local favorite the Choklad Fabriken or chocolate factory, you can find all things deliciously chocolate, cakes, muffins, chocolate bars, and many other delights. The philosophy is simple, a good chocolate and fine raw ingredients. All production is onsite and all products must contain chocolate.
Thomas Nyberg: The Fabriken started in 1997. It’s my sister and her husband who started the business. The most popular what we have right now is something with liquish and toffee. It sounds maybe crazy that’s typical Swedish.
Manjit Devgun: The next stop, Marie Laveau meant for New Orleans’ voudou priestess is one of the city’s most popular restaurants.
Steffen Bjorcj: Marie Laveau was opening up for 2004 and as you see there are some we’re trying to always changing the concept not to always having a high quality of the food standards and also having an optical ring and that actually changing the pictures every third month.
Manjit Devgun: With its eclectic interior, great food and stylish cocktail bar, this chic gathering spot also offers a downstairs dance club. Come in for drink, have a meal and dance past dawn you never have to leave.
With so many choices for all taste, the Stockholm night life is agreeably the best in Scandinavia. Coming highly recommended is Lilla Baren, the separate more discrete small bar of the popular Restaurant, Riche. Lilla Baren attracts Stockholm’s coolest and most fashionable. Early in the evening enjoy intimate conversation and the relaxed pace but later things heat up.
Calle Carboni: To me it makes special costs. We have a lot of variety about the customers coming here. Just like when you’re mixing a drink because there something you need like for a sweet and the sour.
Manjit Devgun: Each night offers a different musical treat from popular international DJs to live performances. Here you find art, glamour, beautiful people, great music, a seductive atmosphere and an independent spirit which is why some call it one of the best bars in the world.
But you’re in Stockholm and the party must go on so we’ll make one more stop. Perhaps the most famous club in Sweden, Sturecompagniet is the place to go celebrity hunting or get lost in the spacious party palace with several bars, winding staircases, intimate rooms, different musical offerings and a huge open sensual dance floor.
Make sure to take plenty of time to visit this beautiful city, see the historic village of Skansen, wander through the old town founded in the 13th Century, explore its shops and museums by foot. Definitely take a boat and see Stockholm from the water and don’t stop at that, in Stockholm there’s so much more.
