The Nordic Nomad

Stockholm, Sweden

Riche Fenix

What’s the bar in a nutshell?

Stockholm restaurant Riche, which has been in business for well over a century, knows a thing or two about creating a good ambience and serving up a culinary feast. Its new sibling is Riche Fenix, a hot and happening bar located on the other side of town in the Södermalm neighbourhood. Here, restaurant manager Matilda Jackson, daughter of well-known restauranteur PG Nilsson, establishes what the next generation of hip urban watering holes is: a lively and social spot with an excellent selection of foods and beverages, eye-catching art and a clientelle that is made up of the city’s most fashionable.

What are the signature dishes?

Chef William Carlström, formerly of Aira and Punk Royal, has devised a menu of finger-licking foods meant to be eaten with your hands – arancini, merguez hotdogs, fried chicken with hot sauce and steak tartare served on a waffle and topped with caviar.

Drinks, anyone?

There’s a good variety of beer and cocktails (make sure to try the habanera margarita), as well as plenty of non-alcoholic options such as Mikkeller’s Drinkin’ in the sun beer and Beskows Vy’s apple and blackthorn beverage.

What’s the neighbourhood like?

Södermalm, known simply as ‘Söder’ amongst locals, was once a seventeenth-century slum. Today, it’s arguably one of the city’s hottest neighbourhoods, and a favourite among creatives, young urban families and professionals alike. The hip district is home to bijou, trending restaurants, picnic-friendly parks and locals whose street style you’ll most certainly want to steal.
