Operahuset, Stockholm

Karl XII:s torg
Tel: 46 8 676 5800's insider take:

Here you'll find opera, ballet, concerts…and four outstanding places to eat, each with a distinct character. The most luxurious and expensive, Operakällaren, serves classic French cuisine in a paneled room that dates from the early 1900s. Café Opera's baroque room serves dinner in the evening and then gradually transforms into a nightclub that attracts a sceney crowd, everyone from junior royals to footballers. Operabaren is a cozy Art Deco room that's perfect for a meatball-and-beer lunch; ask for a window seat overlooking the bustling park, Kungsträdgården. Bakfickan, with its traditional Swedish food, is the most casual and often the busiest, especially on weekdays, when it's packed with office workers. There's also a gleaming white minimalist cocktail bar, Operakallarens Bar Veranda, that's a good place to start the evening.
