We were in Stockholm just for a weekend so we managed to try Bistro Barbro. We loved the Japanese food.
Riche was a fun place very near to our stylish design hotel Nobis Hotel.
Nosh and Chow
Nosh and Chow is a fun busy, trendy place with super tasty burgers. It is Greek PR manager of H and M, Mariza’s Petrakou favorite spot.
As for shopping… no place like Acne Archive if you love Acne Studios and like discovering discounted designer treasures.
Obviously, you must visit the H and M flagship store, Other stories and Cos.
For designer shopping there are endless options. Nathalie Schuterman has an amazing collection of international top designers like Saint Laurent, Miu Miu and Balenciaga.
Best of Brands has a mix of Swedish brands like Acne but is somehow conservative.
My favorite store for handpicked contemporary cool international designer fashion is Mrs H.
Vintage Home Decor Store
For incredible Vintage Swedish and more furniture Dusty Deco is THE place!
You can find amazing furniture and lamps as well as photographs by famous Swedish photographer Andreas Kock or even rare collector’s photographs by Helmut Newton.
We discovered the store and met the owner by accident the night we went to Bistro Barbo.
You can check out their online store DustyDeco.com
We used the train. Everyone speaks English and is very helpful.
Have a lovely Day!!!
