Although there are bars and restaurants at the conference venus, you might want to explore more of what Gothenburg offers. The area around the conference venue is not ideal for finding cozy bars, craft beer and restaurant. Here are some suggestions for where you might want to go instead.

Bars, restaurants and cafés

Even though Gothenburg is full of restaurants and bars, there are some streets with especially many bars that the locals themselves often choose when they go out.

In the city Both Kyrkogatan and Magasinsgatan have a variety of nice restaurants and bars.

The western city areas like  Andra Långgatan, Linnégatan and the neighborhoods around Stigbergstorget and Skanstorget have a variety of spots where you can find something for every taste.

Craft beer and breweries

Gothenburg is known as the beer capital of Sweden. If you enjoy craft beer and local breweries, this city is yhe right place for you. For more information, check out the Craft Beer and Breweries in Gothenburg website.

Here are some personal recommendations from a beer loving colleague: Bishops Arms Plaza (Västra Hamngatan 3), Brewers Beer Bar (Magasinsgatan 3), Stigbergets Shangri-la (Gamla Varvsgatan 1, Stigbergstorget), Ölhallen 7:an (Kungstorget 7 near the Market Hall) and 3 små rum (Kristinelundsgatan 4).

Coffee shops

Take a ‘Swedish Fika’ break in Haga, a cozy part of Gothenburg with many small shops and cafés. Haga is famous for its picturesque wooden houses, 19th-century atmosphere, and charming coffee shops. Walk along Haga Nygata, and you will find many cafés, including one renowned for its gigantic cinnamon buns!
