A COOL GIMMICK FOR A BAR

(Stockholm) — I know, I know, it’s kitschy, but still kinda cool. The Icebar in the Nordic Sea Hotel. A nice place to say “I was there.”  You make reservations, show up, throw on some parkas and get 15-20 minutes in the box.  Not much else to describe.   Last visited: November 2006  

A CLASSIC HOTEL, WITH A REBOOT

(Stockholm) — The Berns was a grand lady hotel, but several years ago it undertook a modern day reboot, boldly revamped into a hipster hangout. I’ve never stayed here, but highly recommend at least stopping in for a drink in the soaring two-story lobby, complete with boom-she-boom soundtrack and great people watching.  Make sure you check out the concerts in the immense, totally gorgeous music hall, presenting some of the hottest bands going. We saw the then just-breaking punk-gypsy band Gogol Bordello, a raucous good time of spinning, laughing and dancing. Last visited: November 2009
