Every May, Condé Nast Traveler releases its Hot List, a collection of the best new hotels, spas, restaurants, and nightspots. Check the Daily Traveler every day for a new post from this year's list.
Created by renowned entrepreneur Pontus Frithiof, this new three-level nightlife beacon in Stureplan Square deserves its kudos: It includes an oysters-and-champagne bar, a cocktail bar, a sushi bar, a dim sum station, and a restaurant. Custom-made wallpaper creates the illusion of being in a fantastical library where The Dangerous Book for Boys and Our Man in Havana are stacked alongside Pontus!'s own cookbook. Every night, as nearby offices close, sharply dressed Swedes flood in to order Nordic- and Asian-influenced cocktails such as the Dragon's Kiss, with fresh ginger juice and Absolut Citron.
