Sweden: Party Holiday - Singles Life

More than just flatpack furniture!

Singletons and party animals in search of non-stop holidaying in Sweden will probably find that Stockholm is the place to be; although other cities, like Gothenburg and Malmo, have social scenes good enough to boast about, Sweden’s capital pips them to the post. With bars like the Absolut Ice Bar (made entirely of ice), the Terence Conran designed Berns nightclub, or Fashing: described as the best jazz club in Scandanavia, Stockholm has it all on its doorstep. But be warned. Sweden operates a safe drinking policy which means that it is fairly expensive to buy in bars, and difficult to get hold of elsewhere. Systembolaget are the government-owned stores which are the only retailers allowed to sell alcohol containing more than 3.5% alcohol; and, in order to do so, you have to be over 20 years of age.
