Fotografiska – Contemporary Photography Art

 Photography Art and Rock ‘n’ Roll

If you’re into Contemporary photography art and Rock ‘n’ Roll, you simply must pay Anton Corbijn’s exhibition at Fotografiska a visit. Between 16 September and 4 December, the renowned photographer exhibits his latest work 1-2-3-4, celebrating and displays his work in the music world. Did you know that Fotografiska also have an Award-winning restaurant? The menu is exciting, focused on green, ecological and local produce. Put that on your to-do list this autumn!

Meet our CEO Lina!

There’s something about September – the days of summer are coming to an end and new routines are coming into place. It’s also a great month to explore all that the city has to offer before the winter hits. Most outdoor terraces are still open and we take the opportunity to soak in the last bits of the mild air and bright evenings.

Welcome to Lina’s Favorites! My name is Lina Gabrielson and I’m the CEO at Hotel Diplomat. In my blog, I will share my recommendations of things to see and do, and  my favorite places in Stockholm. Outdoor exhibitions, picking flowers and late night cocktails with friends – here are my hidden gems and must-sees this September!

Tony Cragg – Outdoor Exhibition

Unique Outdoor Exhibition on Djurgården

Tony Cragg’s work, positioned around Royal Djurgården, sure has made the popular walk around the island even more interesting. Made by Stainless steel, these gigantic sculptures feature the work by one of the most notable artists of the art world. Make sure to pay attention to these five sculptures on your next stroll around Djurgården, and take the opportunity to experience this unique outdoor exhibition before 28 October!

Rosendals Trädgård – Garden Café

Woodfired bakery and Garden Café on Djurgården

It’s such a luxury having Royal Djurgården just around the corner. I’m taking my family with me to this beautiful island filled with gardens, canals and museums and spending the morning at Rosendals Trädgård – the perfect Sunday destination! The charming and genuine garden café offers organic bread and pastries, baked in their own wood oven bakery. During the summer months we also pick our own bouquet of flowers from the beautiful flower field and garden outside.

Bernie’s – Nosh And Chow

Tasty cocktails in a Stylish Townhouse

It’s a Gin Gin Situation – this sweet viol, rosemary and lemony cocktail is one of my absolute favorites! Add to that an open-air courtyard, a fashionable crowd and you have all you need for a winning Saturday night out. I’m coming here with my friends to listen to great music and to enjoy tasty cocktails into the early hours. Bernie’s is the New York inspired bar hidden in a stylish Townhouse, go there!

Hallwylska Palatset – Best Bellini in Town

A Beautiful Oasis in the center of Stockholm

One of my favorite places for a mid-week get-together with friends is at Hallwylska Palatset. This oasis in the center of the city has got a beautiful courtyard and more importantly, the best Bellini in town. Apart from being a popular restaurant and bar, Hallwylska is also a fantastic museum that invites you to the beautiful former home of Walter and Wilhelmina von Hallwyl.

Moderna Museet -Exhibition at Skeppsholmen

Yayoi Kusama at Moderna Museet

Hurry up! Yayoi Kusama’s praised exhibition In Infinity is currently on display at Moderna Museet and is on view until 11 September. Japanese artist Kusama has been claimed to be one of the world’s greatest contemporary artists with her moving between sculpture and painting in her dotted mirror installations. Stop by Restaurang Hjerta while at Skeppsholmen and enjoy their Lavender Pizza – a heavenly combination of celeriac, lavender and honey!

Greasy Spoon – British Brunch in Stockholm

Mimosa and Blueberry Pancakes at Södermalm

If you are into British brunch – this is the place to go! I start my Saturday morning with a walk along Beautiful Skeppsbron over to Södermalm for a Classic brunch at this popular restaurant. Greasy Spoon is the place where I revel in brunch favorites such as Eggs Benedict and Blueberry Scotch pancakes with pistachio mascarpone. And don’t miss out on their Mimosa cocktail! Make sure not to arrive too hungry, they don’t take bookings so be prepared to wait for a while (it’s definitely worth the wait).
