The Grand Hôtel this month unveils its newly designed Terrace. Seating up to 100 guests, the new space in front of the hotel provides a unique outdoor dining and cocktail venue in the heart of Stockholm.
Designed by architect Per Öberg, the Terrace offers a rare outdoor venue for summer diners and drinkers with impressive views of The Royal Palace and Gamla Stan. Accessed from the hotel’s ground floor and located to the right of the main entrance beside Mathias Dahlgren’s restaurants and the Grand Hôtel Nordic Spa & Fitness, the design has been carefully crafted to create a harmony between the hotel’s exterior and interior.
The Terrace is framed by lemon and olive trees and gives the feeling of a classic Mediterranean terrace. The use of chairs made from Swedish cast iron, natural stone table tops and fabrics in sophisticated turquoise and raspberry red, create a timeless elegance inspired by the French Riviera. The chairs have been designed by Svenskt tenn and Josef Frank, situated to create areas to relax and socialize.
The Terrace is open daily from 11.00am to 10.00pm, Monday-Sunday inclusive and offers diners a great selection of new seasonal Southern European inspired dishes, such as fresh carpaccio, classic French salad with Chèvre chaud and gazpacho.
Rich in history and tradition, Grand Hôtel Stockholm dates back more than 140 years and occupies a prime position on the city’s waterfront next to the National Museum and opposite the Royal Palace and Old Town. The Parliament buildings and Royal Opera House are within view, the best shopping district is less than minutes away and the departure point for boats to the archipelago is situated just 25-metres from the hotel.
