Clubbing


CAFE OPERA, Operahuset, Kungsträdgården.Tel 00 46 (0)8 676 58 07

By day a bistro, brasserie, and tearoom, Café Opera becomes one of the most crowded nightclubs in Stockholm in the evening. Visitors have the best chance of getting in around noon during lunch. A stairway near the entrance leads to one of the Opera House's most beautiful corners, the clublike Operabaren (Opera Bar). It's likely to be as crowded as the cafe. The bar is a monumental but historically charming place to have a drink; beer costs 61SEK ($7.95). After 10pm, there is less emphasis on food and more on disco activities. Open daily from 5pm to 3am. At night, long lines form outside. Don't confuse this establishment with the opera's main (and far more expensive) dining room, the Operakällaren.

CASINOS

Many of the clubs and restaurants in Stockholm have got blackJack tables and Roulelette, with a nominal maximum stake of 5 Kronars per round in most places. Different places to play for fun, however there are places for proper gambling with heavier stakes.

Alcohol

Some notes concerning the inflexible Swedish laws regarding alcohol and serving: You can only buy alcohol at Systembolaget, the state monopoly (with the exception for beer up to 3,5%); you have to prove your age of 20 years or more. The legal age at bars and restaurant is 18, but many pubs have an age limit at 20 or 22, some even 30 or 35(!). The bartender must open the bottle before serving it to the customer. You are not allowed to take alcohol off premise (or even the glass!).
