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.

You can also put your knowledge to the test at the variety of quiz nights.

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.
Norda Bar & Grill prides itself on being part Swedish and part American with a menu that reflects a New York sensibility. In fact, the menu is divided in half, one part sea and one part land with simple standards like halibut and cod and steak and lamb. You'll also find hybrid dishes like the tacos, which sounds simple at first, but then you realize your choice of meats are salmon, halibut or smoked chicken. Though located in the Clarion Hotel Post, the Norda Bar & Grill prides itself on serving creative dishes, setting itself a part from other hotel restaurants.
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.
