Basic information about nightlife in Stockholm:

Party areas in Stockholm

Stockholm has two main areas to go out: Södermalm and Östermalm. The vibe on the first one is more relaxed and casual, while in Östermalm the clubs are more exclusive and the door policy is quite strict. So bring your best clothes if you are planning to go to Östermalm.

Apart from the type of atmosphere you are looking for, check the club’s websites or social media for info about the specific events that night, as it would be a good way of choosing where to go. And of course, the knowledgeable staff in your party hostel would probably give you good tips on what’s hot that night.

Party in Södermalm

📍 Best party hostel in Södermalm: - Red Boat Mälaren

Party in Östermalm

📍 Best party hostel in Östermalm: - City Backpackers Stockholm

Östermalm is the most famous party area in Stockholm, but also the most exclusive and expensive. This part of the city is filled with very exclusive clubs, bars and restaurants very popular among celebrities and the royal family.

As a chic and sophisticated area, the door policy is very strict and you can also expect to have to queue to enter in the clubs

Party in Gamla Stan

📍 Best party hostel in Gamla Stan: - Castanea Old Town Hostel

Gamla Stan is the very heart of the beautiful Old Town in Stockholm. In this area you can find smaller and more intimate bars and pubs, with more traditional decoration and offering traditional drinks and food.

Your Pub Crawl will probably start in some of the recent bars opened catering to a younger crowd, moving then to either Östermalm or Södermalm to end the night in a club.

Most of the places around Gamla Stan have regular events like live music nights and happy hours, so check with the reception of your hostel to see what’s on that night.

Dress codes & age restrictions

The minimum age in most of the bars and clubs in Stockholm is 18 years. However, the age limit varies from place to place, depending on the type of the club. Some clubs in the Södermalm are more rigid, with the age limit above 23 years.

Swedish people are normally very elegant, and they like to dress with style. Even the most casual Swedish would look quite chic. So it is not surprising that nightlife in Stockholm, even in casual and informal bars, requires a bit more stylish clothes. To be on a safe side, try to wear some black clothes, shoes or black sneakers and not too extravagant clothes. Check with the reception of your party hostel what’s the dress code of the bar you are planning to go, and ask them their opinion on whether you are dressed properly.
