Oh boy.. I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited to write a blog post in my life!
The nightlife in Stockholm is just that damn incredible. This city rages hard.
My buddy and I visited Stockholm during the week (not on a weekend), and believe it or not, we had so much fun every single night on the town.
The EDM scene in Stockholm is massive, which is why the clubbing scene is so huge. Even when I was just chilling in a random coffee shop around Stockholm, I heard some Avicii tunes and some of my favorite house songs being played!
As you may or may not know, Stockholm is home to many of the world’s most famous house music DJ’s (Avicii, Alesso, Steve Angello, Dad Life, etc.). Several of these DJ’s have residencies at the nightclubs, so they frequently play shows throughout the year.
Speaking of clubs — they are on par with the best in the world. Almost all of the best clubs are located in the Stureplan district, which is a big public square in Central Stockholm.
The only downside to the clubbing scene that many of the big nightclubs in this district close at 3AM (with the exception of a few).
If you are in Stockholm during the summer months (like I was), then you’ll see the sky staying bright 24/7 because the city is so high in Latitude. It’s so trippy to stumble outside a club at 3 AM and see blue skies!
Another note on Swedish beauty — it’s not even fair how attractive the Swedes are. They all have perfect styles and they dress to impress –tall, blonde, skinny, and stunningly beautiful faces. It doesn’t do any justice explaining it to you in words. Having the most beautiful people in the world makes the nightlife THAT much better. Trust me!
One thing to keep in mind about Clubbing is that the bouncers are extremely picky. Make sure to dress nice – no gym shoes, hats, jeans, etc., and don’t get too hammered before you enter or else they won’t let you inside. If you roll into a club with a bunch of dudes, then good luck getting in because they will deny your entry in a second. Try to go with some beautiful girls in your group, and you’ll have a much better chance to get inside.
But what if you don’t have any local Swedish friends?
Perfect! This is your excuse to have some courage and make new friends! This is exact strategy that my friend and I did, and we the only foreigners let into this club called K44.
Alright, before I get carried away, here is my list of the best clubs in Stockholm!
Disclaimer: The following list of clubs was put together mostly from my own personal experiences, but also with the addition of my friends recommendations. Things may have changed over the years, so I am trying my best to keep this list updated. If I missed something, please comment so I can add it to the list! Enjoy
This is the biggest and most amazing nightclub in Stockholm. If you only have 1 night to party in Stockholm, then do it here!
Not one, or two, but THREE floors make up this club with 5 rockin’ dance floors that stay busy until the sun rises.
It’s located right smack in the center of the Sturenplan district. It looks more like a ballroom than a nightclub — with the interior made of marble and roses.
The music in this clubs is all house, mostly by Sweden’s finest DJs. Lots of energy from the crowd makes this place a blast to dance! However, it is pretty difficult to get inside, so make sure to show up early (before 11:30) so you have a better chance. Don’t miss out on the fun of this club!

#2. Hell’s Kitchen
One of the most stylish and trendy clubs in Stockholm is not to be missed.
Hell’s Kitchen is actually known as one of the hardest clubs to get into in Stoclhom, but if you play your cards right, then you can get in 😉
Hence the name of the club, the interior of Hell’s Kitchen a “death” theme, with bones and skulls hanging from the walls. What’s cool about this club is the unisex bathrooms, which you probably don’t see everyday!
As one of the most trendy clubs in the city, you will see champagne bottles flowing at the swanky tables surrounding the club. The music is mainstream house/techno and the crowd is made up of young, social partygoers.
Sturegatan 4, 114 35 Stockholm, Sweden
As a new club, Rose has quickly emerged into one of Stockholm’s hottest nightclubs. In the summer months, there is no better place to party the night away!
With its giant windows, gold-framed mirrors and a beautiful terrace, this place will keep you going all through the night. It is one of the most popular nightclubs in Stockholm.
Rose is always packed with a beautiful Swedish crowd and it continues to provide a party-ready weekend for all you dance music lovers. It’s impossible to have a bad time raging at this club!
Hamngatan 2, 111 47 Stockholm, Sweden
#4. White Room
White room is THE classic and premiere club in Stockholm. It’s the place to be seen (where celebs hang out) and it stays open past 3AM!
The crowd is very good looking and the music is an awesome mix of house hits Yes, you will hear Avicii, Tiesto, Alesso and more!
White Room attracts people on the dance floor until 6 in the morning. However, I recommend getting to the club early (around 11) because the line usually gets really long. Try to make local friends in line (preferably with hot girls) and you will be let inside easier.
Jakobsbergsgatan 29, 111 44 Stockholm, Sweden
Laroy is where you will find the young and sexy crowd on a Friday of Saturday night.
This club regularly attracts people with money and anyone in Stockholm that wants to be seen. If you decide to go here, make sure to dress to impress (otherwise you will get rejected in a second).
The atmosphere inside this club is uplifting and exciting. The music is even better- especially when everyone is dancing with smiles on their faces. It really has an awesome vibe inside that’ll make you never want to leave.
Make sure your wallet is full before you go here, because it’s not cheap. But it’s totally worth the experience!
