TripAdvisor traveller rating  

The Clarion Draken® is set to rise as cinematic expression ready to transport film history into the future! With the stated ambition of creating a landmark to make Gothenburgers proud, we will be opening up the city's new cultural stage and meeting place in autumn 2023.

The historic Draken cinema

For decades, Draken was a centre for festivals. Now it lives on in a new guise as a house of experiences. Right in the heart of the 34-storey building, the historic and culturally significant Draken cinema has been revived as a popular attraction that has been serving locals and visitors to the city since 1956!


The heritage of this fabulous place that was once a hub for culture, dance and entertainment, is reflected in the hotel's beautiful restaurants. On the ground floor, guests can experience a unique dining concept at Heurlins, combining the best of both worlds in one place – sweet and savoury with great live music. High up on floor 33, you can enjoy stunning views of the Gothenburg skyline at Brasserie Draken as you relish delicious drinks and a range of fantastic food. Our two restaurants are sure to awaken all your senses!

A unique global venue

With a cinema, stage, conference rooms and venue for all kinds of entertainment. We care deeply about human interaction and we seek to bring together people, ideas, guests, communities, cities and the world!

Clarion Hotel Draken will be a unique global venue for all kinds of events, while also offering fabulous views of the city and the harbour. The hotel will feature a spectacular banquet hall and several state-of-the-art meeting rooms. Inside the conference centre, you'll be able to experience so much more than just meetings. Planning a large event, small workshop or a glittering awards show? No vision is too little or large - we're here to tailor your experience to make it as spectacular, creative and unique as you wish!

Are you a conference or events booker? Perhaps you're just curious? Let us take you on an exclusive viewing of the Draken interior so that we can showcase this world of possibilities where dreamy spaces await you and your guests! Please contact to make a booking.

Draken Live - Gothenburg's new palace of entertainment

Every week, the hotel will be hosting several exciting performances, shows and concerts in collaboration with Krall Entertainment, which will be managing Draken Live. And to mark the occasion, Jill Johnson will be taking centre stage on 21 September 2023 for the official launch.

The Draken Living Room offers endless surprises

The Living Room is a vibrant open plan space with a constantly evolving stage created for a city that never sleeps! Experience all that Gothenburg has to offer here within the hotel with art, music, theatre, pop-ups and design, and of course people to inspire you! Sit back and relax on a designer sofa as you become part of this energetic theatre of life. You'll also be able to enjoy fantastic gastronomic delights and handcrafted cocktails created by the hotel's chefs and bartenders. Come in for a meeting and stay on for drinks or a show. That's the Clarion spirit!

The dynamic Järntorget district

The Järntorget district is certainly one of the most dynamic in all of Gothenburg. We marvel at the power of theatre and music to set the scene for a dramatic energy! Experience the contrasts of old and new, between different people coming together - locals, tourists and business travellers. The original spirit lingers on as new structures emerge.

A new kind of spa experience

We look forward to welcoming you to this relaxing urban spa in true Draken or "dragon" style. The starting point for Clarion's overall spa concept is Japanese bathing culture, and here at the Draken Hotel, the power of the dragon is revealed in sculptures and lighting installations. Prepare for a truly unique spa experience with us!

The Library

Forget all standard ideas you may have about a hotel library, because this is something else. Here you can be inspired time and time again. The library is home to all manner of media - enjoy analogue and digital tunes, fabulous film soundtracks and cinematic literature. The hotel library is an extension of the lobby area and Vågen.

On top of the world

On floors 33 and 34, an incredible 104 metres above sea level, you'll find a magnificent restaurant and rooftop bar offering stunning views of the city and harbour. We are ready to add yet another jewel to Gothenburg's fabulous dining scene. Stay tuned!
