I got to check this place out recently when I was in Stockholm. It seemed like a cool place. There is an upstairs bar/restaurant and downstairs there is a place for bands to play (+ a bar). My friends' friends were playing so we mostly stayed downstairs tho afterwards we went up to the main bar for a drink. Downstairs... More

I have never ate, only have drank here a few times. Very nice atmosphere inside. Downstairs they often have live music. I will certainly go back again, however I doubt I will eat there as everywhere is over priced food wise in Stockholm. Relaxing place to enjoy a beer with good music.

Used to be the place for young indie pop artists in the 90's. But you can still see (older and younger) pop and rock artists here if you like it. Usually great dj's - the most famous rock pop artists playing. A classic place to visit alongside their record shop across the street. (Yes they started the record shop first!)

I have never eaten at Pet Sounds Bar, but I often come here for pre- or after-dinner drinks. Their cocktails are very good and the atmosphere hip but friendly. Furthermore, the fact that it's often staff from the Pet Sounds record store across the strett who are spinning the discs, the music is varied but always good quality. Go here... More

There have been a big hype about this place and it is very nice. Nice music, good beers, never tried the food but i'm sure it's nice and overpriced just as all the other places in stockholm. I come here often and will go here again. Relaxed and comfy

Maybe it's because it's got an American thing going on and I'm American, but it seemed like an average normal bar. Great beers on tap and great cocktail list, but I expect that in a bar. So, not bad but not a must see, go out of your way place. They apparently have music but, although it was listed, it... More

Created by the people behind a record company Pet Sounds Bar offers listening to great rock'n-roll from primarily the 60's and 70's. A limited selection of food (five main dishes), but try the mussels with french fries and aioli - almost as good as tit is served in Brussels. Great selection of beer.

Located in the middle of Sofo, a cool area with a lot of nice music stores (vinyl), interior shops and cosy cafes, Pet Sounds is a good place to stop. That is, if you are thirsty. The restaurant is nice and informal, and we were happy to get a table on a weekend. The waitress was nice and the wine... More

Little place literally split in two, with a bar area and a small dining room. Service was excellent and food quite good too. We went on a Wednesday night and it was buzzing, got busier after 10pm. Really good atmosphere and young crowd. Not to miss especially if you are staying in sodermalm

We had a very good meal here in June, but were quite disappointed during a return visit on a snowy December evening. After we were seated, the waitress took quite a bit of time to take drink orders and bring us a menu, even though there were a few tables open in the small dining room. When the menu came,... More

Neighborhood Profile
SoFo & Medborgarplatsen
Throughout the last decades these neighborhoods transformed from a rather quiet residential area into the birthplace of Swedish hipsterism and became Sweden’s main hub for new fashion labels, independent coffee shops and innovative gastropub concepts. Despite their extreme transformation, SoFo (South of Folkungagatan) & Medborgarplatsen managed to hold on to their residential charm and quietness and became one of the most sought-after places to live among young people in Stockholm. This neighborhood is also home to Sweden’s highest student hall, Skrapan, which used to be the head office of the tax authorities and now combines a mix of student hall and shopping mall with a bar on top.
