Mässingshornet is the highlight to start or end a pub crawl for anyone wanting to experience the best of Malmö’s genuine pubs where locals hang out.

Groups of Malmö natives are even known to organise their own ‘sunkhaksturné’ – dive bar tour – where Mässingshornet is a given stop on the tour. But I think Mässingshornet has a special touch of class a cut above the rest, despite it feeling like no renovations or touch-ups have been done since 1981 – but that’s where all its charm lies.

I would say it competes with Café Basement for being the pub to visit for the best chance to strike up a conversation with a random Swede. See other article about Café Basement.

Mässingshornet is in an area of the city called Kirseberg – an area which surely no tourist has visited since 1971, which makes a visit to this truly genuine pub all the more interesting.

Bus number 4 goes from Malmö Central to Kirsebergs torg in 9 minutes and Mässingshornet is close by.

They pride themselves on having free live music and open mic entertainment Tuesdays through the weekend, with some sporadic exceptions. There’s a bucket for people to show their appreciation, so be sure to tip the performers if you had a good time.

Whether you catch some music or not, it’s enough to just go there no matter the time of day to enjoy a nice beer and rub shoulders with locals that there’s a good chance no visitor to Malmö has ever encountered before.
