Summer? Sun? Thirsty? Head towards Storköket! At Storköket you can enjoy the sun, the people and the tasty drinks. Popular hamburger restaurant The Barn is in charge of the barbecue all summer long.


Set in a charming small park, this outdoor bar offers boule courts, cold drinks and hammocks to relax in. When the sun sets – head indoors for tasty French cuisine in the lovely restaurant.

Brewers Beer Bar

With its ever changing tap selection, Brewers Beer Bar is a must stop for everyone who loves beer. When you get hungry, make sure to order one of the many artisanal sourdough pizzas on the menu. Enjoy your food and beer in the street where they have tables and chairs during summer.

Olssons vin

Hidden away on one of the street Tredje Långgatan’s cosy courtyards you’ll find  the wine bar Olssons vin. Here you can enjoy fine wines and rub shoulders with locals and visitors.

Taverna Averna

Taverna Averna is another nice restaurant on the street Tredje Långgatan. Here you can eat Italian and from the outdoor terrace you’ll get a good overview of life along the restaurant-dense street.

Hotel Bellora

Hotell Bellora’s Cielo Rooftop Bar opened in the beginning of summer 2016 and quickly became a favourite. So much that the international hotel website mentioned them among the top five rooftops in the world.

Scandic Rubinens takterrass

Scandic Rubinen is located on the main boulevard Avenyn and from the rooftop bar on the seventh floor, you get a lovely view of central Gothenburg.

Villa Belparc

The villa has a fantastic location by the large bird pond in Slottsskogen city park. In summer, the terrace is very popular and the kitchen offers everything from basic café dining to more ambitious dishes, beer and wine. During the winter months you can sit outside and warm up near the small fireplace.

Bar himmel

The summer terrace Bar Himmel has an unbeatable location on the roof of the Gothenburg Museum of Art. The view stretches from the landmark statue of Poseidon and down the main boulevard Avenyn. And it’s almost always sunny here. This is a good choice if you plan to hit the clubs along the main boulevard Avenyn later in the evening. You also have the theatre Stadsteatern and the Concert hall right next door.


If you are in Majorna – head towards Tapasbaren for tasty tapas, great wines and a place in the sun.

Hotel Pigalle

From the rooftop bar at Hotel Pigalle, it is difficult to imagine the busy city life with trams, buses and cars going on just a few floors down. Here it is always peaceful, harmonious, and – almost always – sunny.

Hagabion & Kino

The old indie cinema Hagabion and Bar Kino open up their large outdoor area in the neighbourhood Linnéstan every summer. Expect local beer, vegetarian food and a laid-back atmosphere with cosy lights, until late. A bonus is that you can also see a movie too if you feel like it, and you are in a great spot for futher bar-hopping or a night out at Pustervik.

Post bar

The majestic old post house next to the central station is today housing Clarion Hotel Post where Norda Bar & Grill invites you to a second livingroom. Drink-wise you can choose from for example the exclusive Post lager from local brewery Dugges and cocktails by award-winning bartenders. The atmosphere is extra cheerful on Fridays when Post work celebrates the weekend. The evening sun is complimentary and the location, right by the central station makes this a perfect stop even when you arrive or travel on by train.


The restaurant is one of the new places that popped up around Rosenlund and Esperantoplatsen in the last few years. The cuisine is inspired by both North and South America and serves lunch and dinner. The outdoor area along the canal has a great location for soaking up the evening sun and Barabicu can easily offer everything you look for in a night on the town, featuring good food and drinks and DJs. Järntorget is just around the corner and the landmark Feskekôrka is spotted just down the street.

Röda Sten

Röda Sten is not just an exciting art gallery in the Majorna district, it’s also one of the best places to enjoy sunny days in Gothenburg. Have a look at the art and then head straight to the lovely seating outside.

Local legislations allow bars and restaurants to open their outdoor areas any time from April 1. However, some might choose to open later, so please double-check with the venue if unsure.
