Substitutet at Storehov Castle ?>

Substitutet at Storehov Castle

Last Saturday I was lucky to be invited to a party at Sturehov Castle south west of Stockholm. The party was hosted by Substitutet – an artist collective founded by Eskil Loftsson and Adam Peleg who organise parties together and recently opened the doors to the old stable of Sturehof Castle which they have transformed into an art gallery. A year ago the new lady of the castle, Maria Sandberg, got intrigued by the ambitions of her new neighbors and…

La Banchina Copenhagen ?>

La Banchina Copenhagen

I wanna take you back to Copenhagen for a visit to Christiania and La Banchina – a little restaurant on Refshalevej 141a, with a sauna and a wide wooden jetty – from which one could jump into the salty, cold water, and also enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks and coffee at. After we wrapped up the last in the cleaning mission on the houseboat we rented for Ljudpoolen and Levande Charaders party, we went to Christiania to enjoy the good…

Aunt Benny Berlin

I’m back in Berlin and it feels sooooooo good! Staying in Friedrichshain again, just a short walk from my favourite cafe Aunt Benny They remade the bar section into café space and reduced their cocktail list, but you can still have a drink there.

Destillat STHLM 2017

Last Friday I went to visit my friends at Niklas and Niclas at Destillat STHLM – a booze convent in the heart of Stockholm where the worlds leading liquor producers offers tastings to the visitors. It was held 17 – 18 of February at Waterfront Hotel and in comparison to other bar fairs and convents I’ve visited it was a rather calm event, one could tell that it was a fair that attracted branch people and connoisseurs rather than leather…

Gnesta Bistro

I went to my parents country house on Friday with a friend, and yesterday I followed her to the center of Gnesta where she took the train back to Stockholm and I went for a drink at Bistro Gnesta while waiting for another friend to come visit me. I ordered a double espresso and 2cl Zacapa. It’s a dark rum from Guatemala and has a lovely caramel sweetness. Coffee + dark rum = <3 I’ve never been to Bistro Gnesta…

Kanel & Kardemumma – Gustavsberg Port

7 years ago I got a summer job at the local delicacy boutique, with the loveliest scent ever, in my home village Gustavsberg at Värmdö outside of Stockholm. The boutique was (and still is) called Kanel & Kardemumma, which means Cinnamon & Cardamom, and amongst that we sold a wide range of different coloured teas, dried herbs, flowers and spices, coffees from a wide spectrum of altitudes around the world that we ground in the shop according to the costumers…

Nytorget 6

On Thursday I met my friend Reicell, we went to her neighborhood restaurant- and cocktail bar called Nytorget 6 where it is also located. The kitchen, I’ve heard, is amazing! The cocktails and the staff too. We got seats at the bar and behind it  I found both Fredrik and Erik. They’re friends and colleagues from Berns and I havn’t seen them in ages. They really took care of us and while we decided on what more to drink we…

Michelberger Hotel

I went to brunch with Payman today who I worked with at Berns and Laika in Stockholm earlier.. He’s been in town for the weekend and it was really nice to see him before he went back.

Candelaria Paris

At 52 Rue de Saintonge in Paris lies the little Mexican hideaway Candelaria. My friend and eminent bartender colleague Tony Comas from Montpellieeeeeerrrr, used to work there back in 2015. I wish I came with him to Paris. Candelaria is simply an awesome place. To make things easier for you if you ever wanna visit this little nest, you should know that the cocktail bar is located behind a taco street food restaurant – a taqueria – where it’s crowded,…

Le Comptoir Général

I made it to Paris and I’m staying with a friend of a friend – Samuel – and his girl Morgan. They live in Mairie de Saint-Ouen a bit outside the city center and I’m so happy to be invited to stay with them! Yesterday me and Sam went for a walk in the city with his friend Alevtina and we passed by Le Comptoir Général. A huge space with three different bars where the atmosphere is fairy tale like…
