Mälartorget 15, Gamla Stan
All bars in Sweden are obliged to serve food, which makes a true wine-centric bar a real find. Gaston is arguably the best in Stockholm, with over 400 labels by small Old and New World producers on the menu. The interior is a modern interpretation of Scandinavian design—textural, wood-slatted walls, tall marble-topped tables, and copper accents. While this is primarily a wine bar (with no less than four sommeliers on staff) the bar snacks and small plates come from the incredible Flying Elk next door; the parmesan popcorn, in particular, is hard to resist.
