Bars & Cafes
As you could guess from the name, bowling is the name of the game at Strike & Co. You can reserve a lane for regular bowling, come at night for Disco Bowling (music, lights, florescent-colored pins), or take advantage of the lunch buffet Monday through Friday from 11a to 2p, which includes a round of bowling with your meal. If you're not in the mood for games, you can just come for dinner and drinks, but food isn't really the main reason to come.
Enjoy the food and atmosphere of a standard pub at Tidbloms Pub & Restaurang. Here you can try items like fish & chips, burgers and grilled beef, as well as the Caesar salad and vegetarian burger. On Fridays from 4p to 7p, try the all-you-can-eat buffet, and check out the happy hour drinks at the bar. There are regular live music performances and comedy nights. You can also put your knowledge to the test at the variety of quiz nights.
The versatile Fängelset is an eclectic blend of a cafe, a popular event venue, a nightclub and much more! It hosts numerous concerts: pop, electronica, indie, rock, punk, hardcore and so on, throughout the year. The cafe at this place plays host to a wide range of cultural events like art exhibitions, talks, workshops, lectures and poetry readings, and also DJ nights. But that's not all! If you're a film editor, you'll delight in the in-house film editing studio as it allows you to modify and revise your films and reels. Avid photographers can take advantage of its darkroom, while hardcore artists can hire their art studios. In all, a vibrant art space! Check website for information on current events.
Murveln is slang for "Journalist"; at one time this place may have been teeming with them, but it certainly is not today. The clientele are a varied bunch, most of whom come for a drink and perhaps some food. In the daytime they can be tired shoppers dropping by for an afternoon beer; in the evenings anyone will show up. This is because Murveln is in the middle of Nordstan, by daylight a large shopping mall, but at night a shelter from the cold or a shortcut to the railway station. Many come for the different casino and lottery games. Murveln offers cheap lunches, and a special of the week is available. The food is typically Swedish, while beer and spirits are the main items.
If you want to experience nature while having your coffee, you have two main options in Gothenburg; Rosenkaféet and the café at the Botanical Gardens. Rosenkaféet is situated at Trädgårdsföreningen, the only fenced-in park in the city. The location is wonderful for coffee in the springtime, with lots of flowers and the park's rose garden close by. Or come here for a break on a warm summer's day.
At Steinbrenner & Nyberg you can enjoy a regular sandwich or salad for lunch, but what you really want is their famous soup and dessert bar. For one fairly low price, you get the soup of the day, bread, coffee and complete access to the dessert bar, which features a wide variety of beautiful, delicious cakes. The atmosphere here is also fun and lively, so it's a great spot even if you just want to a latte or other coffee drink.
Mauritz Kaffe is one of the cafés in downtown Gothenburg that specialize in coffee. According to many this is where you'll get the best cup in town. The interior is simple but attractive, and the staff can answer any and all questions about coffee.
Brasserie Ferdinand has been voted Beer Restaurant of the Year, and beer probably is the main item of interest here. There are 132 different brands of beer, most of them bottled. But Brasserie Ferdinand also has a varied menu, with both meat and fish dishes. There is always a vegetarian main course and every weekday they serve a different special of the day. There is also a bar menu with slightly cheaper dishes, such as seafood soup or chili with nachos and trimmings. For those interested in organizing some fun for a group of people, there are beer-tasting nights which are only available by booking. These include the history of beer and the information on how beer is distilled, among other things. The nearest tram stop is Brunnsparken, where all trams stop.
An American sports bar with 30 TVs and three giant screens, O'Learys attracts the true sports fans, offering a typical American menu. The chain has branches in many Swedish towns but the one in Gothenburg was the first. The two-story restaurant has several bars and although the main attractions here are beer and sports, it is possible to have a really good meal. The large selection goes from Chicken Thai to chicken wings, covering everything in between. The décor has sports paraphernalia and red-and-white checkered tablecloths. The personnel is service-minded, dropping by every few minutes to check that everything is satisfactory.
Scandinavian and Italian cuisines are served up at The Golden Days restaurant. Walk in and you will find polite waiters guiding you through the wide range of innovations on the menu. Couple your order with a beer or whiskey, and soak in the golden days. Guests with nocturnal leanings can hang out at the bar. Not in the mood to enjoy a meal? Hit the dance floor instead!
Kafé Vanilj is a spacious and unpretentious cafe at Kyrkogatan, right in the city center. It is large with light colored wood furnishings. Vanilj's fruit pies are good, and they stay open late, even on Sundays. To get here, take trams 3, 4, 5, 6 or 8 to Kungsportsplatsen.
Coffee and a slice of pie are what patrons mainly come here for, though the place is humming with activity at any given time of the day. The daily menu at Fröken Olssons Kafé usually features salads and baguette sandwiches stuffed with shrimp or ham and made in a traditional Swedish fashion, to be washed down with a mug of refreshing lager. Make sure you grab a table on the terrace in summer, and ask for a bowl of their piping hot homemade soup, followed by the main course. One of the huge, delicious meringues on a silver tray should wrap up the meal very well indeed!
