Mattias Rosenbaum and Staffan Svederman opened Brasserie Godot in 2001, with the aim of combining the city’s best cocktails with modern cuisine and French brasserie traditions all in one place. “When we first started some 15 years ago, cocktails were not a huge thing in Stockholm,” says Svederman, explaining the brasserie’s successful concept. “We wanted to open a great bar based on innovative thinking, a place to stay for the whole evening. At Brasserie Godot, people can have an aperitif before dinner, enjoy a lovely meal and continue in our bar afterwards.”
