A Guide to Beer

Stureplansgruppen has recently published a guide for celebrating International Beer Day, and we at Freyja+Söder are honored to be recommended as one of the top destinations. Their article highlights several exciting places to enjoy a cold beer, but we are particularly pleased with their focus on Freyja+Söder. Here’s why our venue is the perfect destination for this special day.

International Beer Day

August 2nd marks International Beer Day, a global celebration of beer’s diversity and culture. It’s a day to appreciate the various flavors and styles of beer and to gather with friends and family over a cold drink. Stureplansgruppen has carefully selected several venues that offer an excellent beer-drinking experience.

Freyja+Söder is already established as one of Stockholm’s destinations for cocktails and wine, thanks to the legendary bartender Jimmy Dymott and awarded sommelier Ellen Franzen. But on International Beer Day, our fantastic view and atmosphere make us the ideal place to celebrate. Our rooftop terrace, Söderterrassen, offers expansive views of Stockholm and can accommodate over 400 guests. With two outdoor bars, it’s the perfect spot to enjoy a cold Norrlands while gazing out over the city’s beautiful skyline.

Indoors, Freyja offers an equally impressive experience. Here, you can enjoy a cold beer alongside exquisite dishes created by Emma Shields. The combination of outstanding food and drink in a relaxed yet elegant setting makes Freyja an unparalleled place to celebrate International Beer Day.

Other Recommended Places

In addition to Freyja+Söder, Stureplansgruppen’s guide includes several other excellent destinations for beer enthusiasts. Le Hibou, a rooftop terrace at Bank Hotel, offers a Parisian atmosphere with fantastic views of the Royal Palace and Stockholm’s canals. Surfers, with its authentic Chinese cuisine and updated cocktail menu, is another exciting choice at Stureplan. In Gothenburg, you can enjoy beer at Storköket, known for its impressive sales of Norrlands Ljus.

For those who want to stay in central Stockholm, Stureplan 1 is a classic destination with a lush outdoor seating area and proximity to the iconic Svampen. Berns Asiatiska offers a unique opportunity to enjoy Japanese beer alongside world-class sushi. If you want a break from beer, Stureplansgruppen also recommends Chez Jolie, where you can try a French cider.

Gamla Riksarkivet and Nosh and Chow are other fantastic places to consider, especially for their seasonal beers and festive atmosphere during Pride Week. And when the sun goes down, there’s always Laroy with its glamorous bar that offers something for every taste.

Celebrating International Beer Day at Freyja+Söder means more than just drinking beer; it’s a complete experience. Whether you prefer to sit outside on our rooftop terrace and enjoy the view or relax indoors with our delicious food and drinks, you’ll find an atmosphere that is both inviting and inspiring.

We look forward to welcoming you to Freyja+Söder to celebrate International Beer Day. Make the day memorable, with great beer, fantastic food, and an unbeatable atmosphere. If you want to read the whole guide, it’s available below.

Vernissage 5:e Juni Carli Halvars 05.06.24

Vuxenspelet, also known as Carli Halvars, is a graffiti and textile artist from Stockholm who, in the spring of 2024, created unique works at the rooftop bar. This rooftop is hard to resist. The beer taps were also replaced with solid wood craftsmanship created by Carli and Joran Stamatakakos, just so your damn beer can be poured with feeling. The menu was designed with motifs and colors to enhance your gastronomic experience.

Carli previously studied at Konstfack, earning a bachelor’s degree in textiles, and this fall he will continue his master’s studies there. In between, he has worked as an artist and held solo exhibitions showcasing woven tapestries. His works encompass humor, seriousness, politics, and absurdity. They demonstrate craftsmanship, sensitivity to materials, and meticulous attention to detail. His creations are infused with time, pain, art, and much of himself.
Graffiti is a significant foundation for Carli’s artistic drive and energy to create. It’s something he engages in year-round, depending on his finances, inspiration, and ideas. Although he has never mastered the art of tagging and always paints legally, his time will come. Through his paintings, he creates stories, appreciating how colors can enhance narratives, sometimes using just a single word.

Carli was born on a couch and has never learned to like coffee. This might contribute to his immense creative mania; he enjoys maintaining a high pace with control. Educated in the Rudolf Steiner method, he, like wet-on-wet painting, allows the boundaries between graffiti and textile art to blend, creating harmonious and provocative works. Sometimes, these are not for everyone.
We will be showcasing his work at Freyja on June 5th. Welcome.

New things at Freyja+Söder’s terrace

This summer, we at Freyja+Söder are excited to welcome you with a range of exciting new features designed to enhance your vibe and well-being.

One of the major highlights is the transformation of the terrace by an artist with a distinctive style, known as @vuxenspelet. With their unique approach to art, we hope to give the terrace the attitude it deserves.

In terms of dining, we introduce the “Söder’s Special” on the terrace for just 85 kronor.

This meal is perfect for those looking for a quick yet satisfying lunch or dinner.
Additionally, we are offering ice cream boats for only 35 kronor, providing the perfect finish to your meal or just a cooling break during sunny summer days.

Another exciting update is the introduction of an entirely new drink menu. This menu is designed to complement both new and classic dishes. A recommendation from the new menu is the drink “Tiger Hunt,” made with Mandarin, Patron Blanco, Suze, Lillet Blanc, and saffron. It’s a delightful thrill in the jungle on the terrace.

Signature Drink: Röda Linjen 03.18.24

Stureplansgruppen has compiled a list of signature cocktails in Stockholm and Gothenburg, and we were honored to participate with our drink, “Röda linjen”. The Red Line is the metro that passes by Freyja, and we witness it making its rounds over Söderström’s Bridge both day and night. The cocktail is refreshingly flavored, made with Swedish strawberries from one of the finest producers, Stenhuse Farm on Gotland, and the tastiest gin we know from Stockholm Distillery, Navy Strength at 57% alcohol by volume. We add wormwood for spice and finish the drink with a spray of Absinthe, a classic touch.
