The Royal Swedish Opera boasts a fantastic heritage. Opened in 1898, its iconic bar became the hub for bohemian Stockholm. Many artists, poets and writers met up for a tipple and famous opera singers Birgit Nilsson, Jussi Björling and Nicolai Gedda were known to relax here after their shows. Having been closed for many years, fortunately the Royal Swedish Opera decided to showcase the fabulous old facilities again. Brasseriet opened its doors in April 2015, following a careful restoration of the facilities. The vision was to offer a friendly and unpretentious experience of high gastronomic level.
