The restaurant and bar Häktet has become a favourite among the people of Södermalm the past few years.
The restaurant has a good reputation with great service and ambitious dishes that often involve some kind of meat. In summer there is an outdoor bar in the courtyard of this place that actually used to be a prison back in the 19th century.
Being one of the few places in Södermalm that closes at 03:00 on weekends Häktet’s quite small bar gets crowded fast, so get here in time in order to avoid the queues.
On weekday evenings it’s a little quieter which means that you can sit down at the bar and get advice from the bartender about what drinks to order.
If you’re into cocktails and would like a more intimate bar you can go to Häktet Vänster – a small cocktail bar that has its own entrance. When coming in from the street – knock on the door to the left instead of going to the restaurant and bar to the right. The small secret cocktail bar will fit you in if there’s room. If not the door will remain closed.
