WHAT TO DO

Bars and night­clubs in and near So­der­malm: This trendy neigh­bor­hood is the thump­ing heart of the Stock­holm mu­sic scene, thanks to its in­ti­mate bars ( Indigo, Got­gatan 19; Nada, Aso­gatan 140; Pet Sounds Bar, Skanegatan 80;

Snotty, Skanegatan 90) and its invit­ing night­clubs ( De­baser Medis, Med­bor­garplat­sen 8; So­dra Teatern, Mose­backe 1; Strand, Horn­stull Strand 4). You’ll have to cross a bridge to visit the orig­i­nal De­baser Slussen night­club at Karl Jo­hans Torg 1 in the Slussen neigh­bor­hood — home of Elis­a­beth Sa­lan­der, nov­el­ist Steig Lars­son’s “Girl With the Dragon Tat­too.”

Bars and night­clubs in Sture­plan: Things can get pretty posh in the Sture­plan neigh­bor­hood, but check out

Riche at Birger Jarls­gatan 4 — and be sure to use the door on the right. (The left is an al­ways-mobbed res­tau­rant of the same name.) Af­ter that, head over to the stun­ning Berns Sa­longer at Berzelii Park 103, Stock­holm’s most re­splen­dent mu­sic venue.
