March 21, the time had come, it was finally time for the premiere of what looks to be Scandinavia's coolest rooftop bar. Tak Stockholm is perched on the 14th floor between the two Nordic Choice Hotels, At Six and Hobo. We had been invited by Olivia to attend at both the sneak premiere and the official opening day.
Once there, we were welcomed by the staff in the elevator who showed us up to the 14th floor. And the views that met us on the terrace were fantastic. Stunning 360-degree views over Stockholm.
Despite the fact that the terrace is not completely finished yet, we got a feeling of how mighty this will be. The roof terrace is expected to be completed in May, so the premiere was for the sky bar and its restaurant.
The place is inspired by both the Nordic countries and Japan. And it shows in both the drinks, food and decor. The small canapés were lovely. The Swedish delicacy “löjrom” and the Asian tartar was really nice. So good that we ate 5pcs of the mini tartar .
If the food was good, the drinks were of the same quality. Unfortunately, we forgot to ask what the drink contained, but it was super nice. And so was the Saké.
Food and drinks in all honor, but most importantly for us rooftop enthusiasts are still the view and the atmosphere. And there was nothing to complain about there either. We have already mentioned the breathtaking view. It’s hard too believe that there is a much better view to enjoy in our capital.
And same for the atmosphere. A live DJ played some nice tunes and a little later the well-known band Blacknuss put on a great performance. What we especially liked was that there are areas for both a calmer atmosphere in the comfortable lounge sofas, nice chill out at the long and big bar counter and a little more party nearby the scene and the DJ booth.
In other words, there is something for everyone here. The sneak premiere was a success and it bodes well for future events that will take place here.
The doors to Tak Stockholm opened on March 23rd and of course we came here to check out the potential of the terrace even more. We arrived at 5 PM to experience everything in daylight.
In the afternoon sunshine, you got a magical view over Stockholm and its beautiful surroundnings. People stood and enjoyed themselves at the terrace, while sipping on beer and cocktails - although the terrace is not finished yet. For those waiting for the roof terrace, the project is planned to be finished in May. Something we really look forward to!
Tak Stockholm really is a lovely addition to the Swedish rooftop scene and this feels like a success, in advance.
