If you are looking for a trendy, more relaxed bar and nightclub near Sturegatan, then the Suite nightclub Stockholm may be a better option. The official age limit here is 23, but this is subject to change each day. It is also run by the Sture group, and is actually based inside the Sturecompagniet
building. In many ways you could consider it an exclusive VIP room belonging to the main club, but it has a more relaxed feel to it, and focuses more on a traditional bar experience and a high class club lounge than a pumping event-based nightlife. Unlike Sturecompagniet
, which can be a bit more high energy and high end, with a bias towards Swedish-speaking bouncers, Suite is more welcoming towards the international scene, bringing all the fun of a great night out with a bit less energy and a bit more of a chill factor.
Recently refurbished to catch up with the times, the inner decor is more reminiscent of a traditional bar or dive bar, with a few modern elements and features, such as the geometric patterns on the ceiling, walls, and surfaces, and the soft lighting.
Although it is a more relaxed venue, it still has that spark of glamour you want at a nightclub. Expect perfect bottle service, gorgeous hosts, a bartender who knows what he is handling, and the A-Lister treatment you know you deserve.
Like the more relaxed or casual clubs in Stockholm, the Suite club does not open as late as some of the younger and more energetic venues. It is at its most lively around one, and tapers off from there. Because of the way it is set up, it invites a more international clientele than some of the other places to go in Sturegatan, so you will find a much more welcoming scene if you are a solo tourist or travelling with a small group of friends.
Nevertheless, as the age limit for the venue is 23, expect to have your age questioned at the door if you are lucky enough to look to be 18-22. So bring ID such as a passport, that is easy to read even for people who do not speak the language it is in, and that is common and quick to check. Expect to be turned away if your ID is not something they can easily make sense of.
As for dress code, you will need to dress smart casual, but as long as you look sophisticated you will not need to go as all-out as some of the other popular venues in the area. They know you are a person of taste with money just by virtue of being there, so relax and enjoy. Simple class and grace is perfect for this relaxed club. It will be enough to avoid sportswear and torn clothes, and for the women to wear a nice dress with heels or high quality boots.
And always remember that because it is a small room, getting on the guest list or reserving a table with bottle service might be the only way of getting in on any given night
