Take A Walk on The Wild Side At Södermalm – Stockholm
It’s Stockholm’s hipster hangout – called Söder by locals and favored by the creative elite. A walk around this vibrant hood will throw up one-of-a-kind vintage emporiums, second-hand shops, independent boutiques, even an Indian restaurant called Gossip that promises to serve “crazy good Bengali street food”.
Stop by Herr Judit, a handsome menswear store stocked with vintage apparel and antique wooden cabinets. The distinctive smell of fine leather and burnt amber elevates your shopping experience as you sift through Pendleton plaids and Maison Margiela raincoats.
For the classic gent, Haberdash is the jam, with old-school labels like Dr. Martens, Filson and Stutterheim neatly stacked in front of granite and cacti-accented walls.
Grandpa has everything for the urban male: jeans to hoodies from labels like Velour and Neuw. After you’re done, head over to Cultur Bar & Restaurant, which exudes a speakeasy vibe and is filled with Stockholm’s most beautiful people. Order a Valmont the Second, made from a blend of Stolichnaya vodka and zingiber liqueur, and you’ll fit right in.
