Yes sure there are night clubs and resturants there. But it's nice to go and just walk around the lake. Get some ice cream and take a seat somewhere. Who know maybe you get luck and see some live music.

If you like to do sports this is the perfect place to come! During summer you can take a dip in the lake to refresh yourself or just bring your bike.

We caught the No 5 tram and got off at Jarun station. Walk to end of road and turn left. A few cafe around the pebble beach. Don't think I would swim there as it is basically just a man made dam.
