Helenes by the lock

This is one of my favourite Stockholm bars. Located at Slussen (the lock or sluice) right in the middle of town, you get the real under-the-bridges-near-water Stockholm experience. The food is simple bordering to bar snacks, and they only serve very regular beers and wines, but I always feel very much at home here. Only open when the weather is good in the summer (yes, here you can make fun of Swedish summer).

I like the place and the way you described it and, baking under an unrelenting sun, I'll take any alternative summer without complaining.

Hey, I wouldn't make fun of Swedish summers. I think they are wonderful. Both days!

Can't imagine how many times I walked by that place without stopping. Now that you recommend it, I will try some time when both lock gates are open and the whole lake is roaring by!
