Favorite Summer Bar: Mälarpaviljongen!

I have posted several times over the years about this floating bar but, as this weekend is supposed to be sunny and warm, I thought a friendly reminder would be good. Plus, I just visited Mälarpaviljongen last week and took new pictures!

You never know what type of boat will drift by… 

Mälarpaviljongen is located on the waterfront on the island of Kungsholmen. In fact, most of it is floating on the water. This, along with the fantastic views, makes it an idyllic place to have lunch or an evening cocktail. Very popular with Stockholmers and a bit off the beaten path, so visitors really don’t stumble on to it unless they know where to go. Lots of boats and kayakers passing by on the lake…

Mälarpaviljongen is gay owned and operated and does attract a large LGBT crowd, especially later in the evenings. But, generally speaking, the clientele is very mixed with everything from gay couples to young families to grannies with their lap dogs, all enjoying a drink and the views. All are welcome. This is, after all, Sweden where a big deal isn’t made about a person’s sexuality. If you are in Stockholm on a warm and sunny day, Mälarpaviljongen is definitely worth a visit!
