Pontus Frithiof La Tour

Pontus Frithiof La Tour, perched on DN-skrapan’s 23rd floor, reimagines afternoon tea with a distinct French flair. Masterminded by Pontus Frithiof and the tea connoisseur Mario E. Moroni, this venue combines Stockholm vistas with a rich culinary journey. The space, adorned with chic décor but respectfully honours the building’s 1960’s architecture, offers private dining rooms, an orangery and a balcony for an intimate experience. The signature afternoon tea, a six-course marvel paired with Moroni’s award-winning tea selection, encapsulates luxury and gastronomic finesse – and a heck of a Stockholm view.
