Want tips on where to go to hang out over a drink or two without having to walk down the entire Andra Långgatan? Here is the list of our own quality-tested hotel bars in Gothenburg.
In the heart of central Gothenburg, there is no shortage of watering holes. Andra Långgatan and the streets inside the moat are widely known for their bars, nightclubs and restaurants. Perfect for a night of barhopping. But Gothenburg has more gems to offer for those who want to experience the city over a drink. Want some suggestions? Here is our list with the best tried and tested hotel bars in town.
1. TaKeT, Comfort Hotel® Göteborg - award-winning rooftop bar
Right on the quayside, the Skeppsbrohuset has been given a makeover and is home to Comfort Hotel® Göteborg, one of the city's boldest hotels. The OGBG Restaurant & Bar serves East Indian-style food and drinks to match either your meal or the conversations you have with your company. In summer, you absolutely shouldn't miss TaKeT - the rooftop bar overlooking Gothenburg's harbour approach. The Rooftop Guide has voted TaKeT the best rooftop bar in the world, thanks to the various events that take place throughout the summer and make every visit a new experience.
The internationally acclaimed rooftop bar, TaKeT, is incredibly popular, perhaps thanks to all the events that make every visit a new experience.
2. Postbaren, Clarion Hotel® Post - the natural meeting place for party people
Next to Gothenburg Central Station is the venerable post office, which has been a hotel for over 10 years. Over the years, Clarion Hotel® Post has become the natural place to go for an evening of lovely drinks, delicious food and a GREAT atmosphere. In addition to the hotel's popular restaurants, VRÅ and Norda, Postbaren serves exciting cocktails and their own craft beer. During the summer months, the Terrace opens up with outdoor seating in a sunny location.
In addition to its own craft beer, Postbaren offers a stylish and inviting interior, made for an evening with good friends.
3. Avalon Hotel - quality drinks in a design environment
Our feng shui-certified design hotel, Avalon Hotel, is located at the best address in Gothenburg and the hotel's bar gives the competition next door a run for their money. Both locals and tourists enjoy hanging out here. The White Guide thinks the drinks are top class, and we fully agree.
Avalon Hotel's dramatic facade is unmissable as you pass Kungstorget, no matter what time of day.
4. Quality Hotel™ Panorama - enjoy board games and shuffleboard with your friends
Quality Hotel™ Panorama is located but a stone's throw from Liseberg, the Swedish Exhibition Centre and Universeum. Lobbybaren serves coffee, drinks and snacks, but the best part is that you can play shuffleboard or board games while spending the entire evening with your friends. During the months leading up to Melodifestivalen season you can even rent your own karaoke room and treat (or scare) your friends with your own sing-along!
A drink and a game of shuffleboard or board games with a few good friends. Sounds wonderful, doesn't it?
5. Odins TAK, Clarion Collection® Hotel Odin – a relaxed rooftop bar
Near the central station you will find another rooftop bar. Odins TAK has also been recognised by The Rooftop Guide, but here the focus is on comfort with a capital C. Lounge furniture, sun beds and a relaxed environment make for a thoroughly enjoyable experience when the sun is out.
This might not be what you see in winter, but don't fret, summer is around the corner. Hold on tight.
On other nights, head to the main floor of the Clarion Collection® Hotel Odin. The hotel bar and its lounge area are designed in a modern contemporary style. Comfortable armchairs and a fireplace will make you want to stay all night.
The sofa by the fireplace at Clarion Collection® Hotel Odin is a great place to spend an evening in the company of great friends.
6. Comfort Hotel® City - open 24/7
Comfort Hotel City has a 24-hour Barception (although alcohol is not served 24/7). It's a nice, relaxed place to meet up with friends before heading out on the town – or as a last stop on the way home. Or you can stay all evening. Here you can eat, drink and socialise in an informal environment.
Did you know that Barception is a combination of bar and reception? Here you can both check in and chill out with a drink or a bite to eat.
With comfy armchairs and good company, there's really no need to even leave the hotel.
