This unique concept nightclub near Birger Jarlsgatan is based out of a refurbished trendy apartment. Whether intentionally or not, the name of the Spy Bar in Stockholm conjures up images of a trendy little speakeasy in the corner of a building, where people can hide away from the turmoil of everyday city life. And in many ways, that is exactly what it is. It is barely announced by a small, unassuming neon sign on the corner of the balcony overlooking the street, and at first glance you might not guess that this is one of the hottest clubs in Sweden. But it is a wonderful little haven for locals and tourists alike, which will make you feel truly at home. The official age limit here is 23, but this is subject to change each day.

The furnishings at this, one of Stockholm's most popular nightclubs, is a curious blend of traditional nightclub lighting and cosy furnishings, ranging from the carefully decorated, marble-topped bar, to the chic blackboards displaying the drinks menu, to the traditional floor rugs and carefully carved tables and chairs.
Spy Bar in Stockholm opens late, until five in the morning sometimes, allowing you to party all night long. It is less of a rave and dance club, though, and more of a relaxed lounge, where people can sit, sip exquisite drinks, and either watch the goings on inside the club, or look out over the streets as the night rolls by.
The full bar serves plenty of traditional bar beverages, as well as a selection of cocktails and premium bottles. And if you are looking for bottle service, then this is a great place to start, as you will be able to enjoy some delightful cocktails. The drinks are largely decently priced, but the cover fee and cloak room will cost a bit, so bring plenty of money with you.
The age limit is a bit higher than in most European and American clubs again: around twenty three. You will need to carry ID with you. The Spy nightclub in Stockholm reserves the right to turn anyone away at the door if they suspect the person is underage, the person is not carrying ID, or they suspect their ID to be falsified. A passport is the best option, as even someone who is not native to your country will be able to understand that it is a valid form of ID. And, as always, make sure that you can speak a little Swedish or are with a Swedish friend if you want to guarantee entry, as any dispute may have to be with a bouncer who does not speak English.
The guest list can sometimes be difficult to get on, but it is definitely recommended. Bottle service is much easier to get and will help you get in as well. Like with most Stockholm nightclubs, you will want to be dressed to the nines to get in, too. Crisp button down shirt, no torn or sports clothing, dresses and heels for the ladies. And carry yourself with dignity and grace, or else they may assume you have been drinking already and refuse entry.
