Nabo Brasserie is a lively and welcoming restaurant, beautifully located next to Tegnérlunden Park in Stockholm city centre. Here, guests can enjoy delicious food, as well as excellent service and entertainment. This simple and friendly neighbourhood brasserie has a soft spot for the fun in life.
“Nabo means neighbour in old Swedish, and we decided to create the ultimate gastronomic neighbour,” explains Andreas Höistad, founder and co-owner of Nabo.
Nabo Brasserie is divided over two floors of a 19th-century house. At the entrance, you are met by a long bar and vibrant dining room with an open kitchen. Downstairs, you will find another dining room and an event space which can be booked for intimate work lunches, celebratory cocktails or big birthday parties.
“We want the ambiance to capture our love for dining, drinking and entertainment. Upon arrival, you will see the long bar and the bartenders working their magic. It instantly puts you in a great mood!” says Höistad with a smile.
Nabo Brasserie aims to provide entertainment and culture as well as delicious food and drinks. Every weekend, the exciting brunch menu offers classics such as fluffy pancakes and mimosas, and new, modern combinations like Italian steak tartare and honey basil daquiris – perfect fuel before you head out to explore the city. By night, the neighbourhood brasserie turns up the heat with DJs and well-crafted cocktails and is open for dinner and drinks from Monday to Saturday.
“Beyond our weekend DJ nights, we also arrange day parties and events. We love to combine food and drinks with music. We also host art exhibitions where local artists can display their work. We never want to exclude anyone, and everyone should feel welcome here,” says Höistad.
Wine, dine and wine again
The menu is dynamic and European, focusing on well-known favourites with a modern twist. This is combined with a carefully sourced wine list that the waiters will guide you through. “Nick, my co-owner, is a trained sommelier, and he works hard to create the perfect wine list. He is very excited about sharing his knowledge with our guests. When it comes to the food, we never want to limit ourselves. Our French-schooled head chef Gerdvilas Zalys has the freedom to experiment with the menu and changes the dishes regularly, depending on season and produce. We like to mix comfort food with new and fun ideas,” finishes Höistad.
