Newly opened Rosa Bar & Restaurant offers classic Swedish home cooking with a twist in a warm, welcoming atmosphere. What you might not know is that this is also considered to be one of the city’s best spots to enjoy a good beer.
A new promising hangout has opened in central Stockholm, a stone’s throw from Östermalmstorg, Stureplan and Humlegården. Rosa Bar & Restaurant opened its doors in mid-November last year, in what was formerly the craft beer bar Mikkeller Stockholm, and the new venue has already received a fantastic response.
“With Rosa, we have broadened the offering and managed to create a comfy, warm atmosphere where people like to just hang out,” says Marc Schuterman, co-founder. “We see that many guests come to check out the new place, they have a beer or two and then end up staying, enjoying themselves and trying our menu. That’s the best compliment you can get!”
Fine rustic cuisine with a twist
On the menu, you will find classic Swedish home cooking with a modern twist. ”Our approach can be described as fine rustic, with a contemporary touch,” explains head chef Rickard Stumm. “It makes for a much more interesting and tastier experience.” An example is the traditional dish lapskojs, which has been modernised and is now served with mashed potatoes, smoked reindeer, truffles and fermented beetroot. Simplicity is key, and one of the most popular dishes is currently the vegetarian bar sandwich.
Rosa is also open for brunch on Saturdays and Sundays – how to resist Turkish eggs with garlic yogurt and chili butter or Toast Skogen with confit mushrooms and tofu cream? Another hit is the freshly baked pretzel with homemade butter from the bar menu. Rosa is actually one of Stockholm’s best spots to enjoy a good beer, with 24 beers on tap ranging from talented Swedish microbreweries to fabulous German and Czech beers. In addition to great beer, Rosa offers premium wines served by the glass as well as carefully selected spirits.
Contributing to the vibe is the lush interior and the art theme with paintings, photography and abstract art displayed on the walls. For instance, recently Rosa hosted a vernissage for Jonas Pike, one of the pioneers in graffiti art in Sweden. And lots more is in the pipeline, with plans for cultural happenings, live music and DJs, as well as exciting food and drinks tastings.
