When I just moved to Stockholm, I started a job close to Kungsträdgården. My sister in law invited me for an AW (after work) at the ‘Soul Train’ in Café Opera, which was very close to my office.
My sister in law is quite a bit older than me, but she has her party moods going on pretty well.
The ‘Soul Train’ seemed to be a funk & soul night that starts every Friday at 17:00 and the entrance is free. I absolutely loved it. Even though the audience is slightly mixed and a little bit on the 40+ side, I had such great fun just looking at people and enjoying the great vibe.
The DJs mixed lovely funky tracks from the 70s, 80s and 90s, both singalongs and dance floor killers.
I have to admit I have not been to many other events at Café Opera (I know there is lots if you check their website), but have been several times coming back to enjoy the ‘Soul Train’. The fact that it starts at 17:00 on a Friday makes it easy to have a great start of your weekend and get into a festive mood!
