Wonderful building. We visited briefly en route to the nearby Hard Rock Cafe and there was a performance on inside so we didn't stay long. The main round room is really atmospheric.

Vasastan is one of those neighborhoods that almost
looks too good to be true. It has the winning
combination of a central location, tranquility, and
beautiful buildings – housing sophisticated bars and
eateries – that makes this neighborhood Stockholm’s
most sought-after place to live. If walking through
this area makes you feel like walking through a fairy
tale or picture book it’s no surprise, as it’s
