There are many places in Stockholm to have a good time and get expensive drinks. While I like to check those places out, it’s still good to know about places that are easier on the wallet.
Lion Bar is a perfect example of a place that’s fun and affordable. Most bars charge at least 60kr for a beer. At Lion Bar beers go for 23kr! I couldn’t believe it when I saw it! The bar is right across from the Hornstull center. They’re open every day with such great prices. The food is decent (it’s still a bar) as well, with nothing priced over 90kr. A late dinner with a couple of drinks won’t run you over 150kr.
The mood of Lion Bar is nice as well. It’s a warm environment, the lighting is low and the music at just the right volume. I never have to ask my friends to repeat themselves due to noise. There is a variety of seating. I’ve sat at the wooden tables before and with a big group, cozied into a booth. There is also outside seating during warmer months.
I can’t believe this place isn’t more crowded, it’s so nice. Until it does get crowded, I’ll take advantage of the good prices and chill vibe at Lion Bar. It’s the perfect place to hang out before the hang out.
