The best Gothenburg offers

Activities, restaurants, offers and more not to be missed!

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

Skeppsbroplatsen 1

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.

2. Postbaren, Clarion Hotel® Post - the natural meeting place for party people

Drottningtorget 10

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.

3. Avalon Hotel - quality drinks in a design environment

Kungstorget 9

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.

4. Quality Hotel™ Panorama - enjoy board games and shuffleboard with your friends

Eklandagatan 51-53

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!

5. Odins TAK, Clarion Collection® Hotel Odin – a relaxed rooftop bar

Odinsgatan 6

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.

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.

6. Comfort Hotel® City - open 24/7

Drottninggatan 63-65

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.
