Clarion Hotel® Draken goes large when it comes to cinematic expression! This is the place where film history meets the future, providing as a fabulous venue for cultural events and conferences.
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, which has been serving locals and visitors to the city since 1956, has been revived as a popular attraction!
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, you can experience a unique dining concept at Heurlins, combining the best of both worlds in one place. Guests can look forward to sweet and savoury flavours including a variety of seafood dishes, as well as local beers and great live music. We look forward to welcoming you to a fabulous seafood bistro with a sweet tooth!
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 in this spectacular, timeless and exciting setting! One floor up from Brasserie Draken, you can experience our wonderful rooftop bar and terrace where you can try a range of world-class cocktails as you gaze out at the incredible views of the Gothenburg and beyond!
Our two restaurants are both sure to awaken all your senses!

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.
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.
Obie Spa – new kind of spa experience
We look forward to welcoming you to this relaxing urban spa in true Draken or "dragon" style that is firmly rooted in Nordic culture with minimalistic, dark and earthy materials. Allow yourselves to be seduced by the drama of the Nordic climate, where light, water, steam, ice and heat envelop you. Take some time out to reflect at the Obie Spa opening on 10 February 2024.
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.
