Bar Nombre and Mons Bar & Brasserie - Stockholm bar news
|Boston Sidecar @ Bar Nombre|
The bar is accessed directly from the street, the interiors are dark red and the living candles adds to the atmosphere. Unfortunately, the music is bland and somewhat to loud...
A chalkboard on the wall suggests a few evening specials, and the printed cocktail menu lists a number of untitled brandy based cocktails. I decided to try the Boston Sidecar, and it was OK but nothing special.
I would say that the bar is suitable for an aperitif if you're having dinner downstairs, but it's not an essential destination for the cocktail aficionado.
Mons Bar & Brasserie, formerly know as The Midtown Bar, is connected to Hotel Stureplan and opened last week with a temporary cocktail menu which will be revised and extended in the near future, according to bar manager Oskar Warne.
The layout of the bar is a bit strange, as you enter from the street into a small room with the bar to the right and a spiral staircase to the left which takes you upstairs to a more secluded place. Further inside is another quite narrow room with some tables, which also serves as passageway to the brasserie. The atmosphere is good though, with soft old-school jazz music and a nice mix of pre-dinner and hotel guests as well as walk-ins.
