It’s doubtful that a casino makes the list of Spotter tips for most cities, but Malmö’s state-run Casino Cosmopol has a few pleasant surprises. Situated in the beautiful park Kungsparken, the building dates back to 1881.
A day entry costs 60 SEK, but so does an annual membership if you submit your e-mail address, so ask for the membership and it gives you a discount on numerous dishes like their meal of the week with meat and fish/vegetarian options.
The chef is really good and I’ve found that special attention is always given to the meal of the week because it never disappoints – and it ends up costing less than half of what a similar quality dish would elsewhere in Malmö. A real Michelin feel every time.
There are also good options on the usual menu. Highlights are their exceptional ribs which comes as a big portion, as well as the Caesar salad with chicken and bacon. Remember that many dishes have a membership discount so let them know if you have one when ordering.
There’s also a lovely patio open via the 2nd floor when weather permits.
Be sure to check out my favourite slot too, Cash Cove, and buy me a drink if I’m sitting there because I’m likely losing and need sympathy. Also check if Jon is working at the bar and ask him for a “Joe Special” to get a great drink at a great price.
Note, you need ID like a passport and be over 20 to enter.
