Where to Drink in Gothenburg

Gothenburg has plenty of traditional beer halls, a significant and growing craft beer scene, cosy wine bars with sophisticated nibbles, and relaxed nightlife. Coffee is a national obsession in Sweden and Gothenburg has cafés ranging from homey to chic where you can pause for “fika"—a chat with friends over coffee and a bite of something sweet.

Kyrkogatan 13, 411 15 Göteborg, Sweden
At the far end of a charming courtyard is this tiny café that is also a record store and a record label. So please don’t hesitate to comment on the music while ordering your coffee and homemade biscuits or enjoying your lunchtime soup. Sometimes Höga Nord arranges concerts with bands from their own label, Höga Nord Records. Expect psychedelic and Swedish prog rock. Sometimes the owners of Höga Nord can be found behind the DJ booth of restaurant Folk, which means unknown and unusual music like Serbian synth rock will be played that night.
