Friendly and cheerful staff, good food in the restaurant for a reasonable price and a warm, welcoming atmosphere in both bar and restaurant. Sidetrack has been around for ages and is still keeping their rainbow flag flying high and proud. If Stockholm is lucky, it'll be around for many more years. It's small and can quickly become crowded but that... More

Down a flight of stairs into the basement is the cozy restaurant n bar. The menu was simple but tasty. Service was prompt and drinks were great. This is a gay business, so while women are not excluded they're not common. Definitely not kid friendly. It is a small space so as the diners come in it can get noisy.... More

A nice gaybar and restaurant in south central Stockholm, with great food to reasonable prices. It is the place for you to casually dine on Swedish cuisine or to just hang out and enjoy a beer. Cosy on weekdays, wild on weekends.

That bar is fantastic. As soon as you enter the bar you feel at home. Everyone there is really nice and very keen on serving you. Plus the free condoms were great :D

Classic Stockholm venue with a friendly, no attitude service, great but small menu filled with Swedish essentials a stunning bunch of people. A waterhole for the locals, bears, leathermen and gay guys in general.

Very popoular Bar and restaurant open Wednesday to Saturday. Nice bar area and restaurant with simple but ok food. Sometimes very crowded which can give you a little claustrophobic feeling as the restaurant is downstairs in cellar premises. Usually very nice crowd and the staff is very accommodating and pleasant.

Just opposite of the underground station Mariatorget, Sidetrack is a gay bar in the basement of the pub Halfway Inn. It is quite small, so if you want to eat, please make a reservation. The food, which comes from the pub on the ground floor, is simple, but quite good. The service is very attentive so you do feel very... More

We ate here with a large group (24+) so had the restaurant fully booked. Dinner was fast and good. Because of our size and the fact that we all arrived at the same time, we didn't have the menu to choose from, but the meat, fish and veggie dishes were delicious. Later on the terrace was very busy and we... More

Truth is Stockholm does not offer a big range of gay-bars but that is probably because there is no need to. Out of those places, sidetrack is by far my favorite and in fact the only one I would suggest to a visitor in the city. The atmosphere is nice and relaxed, the bartenders friendly and if you want to... More

Staying in Mariatorget

Neighborhood Profile
This rather quiet neighborhood revolves around a postcard-like park with a dramatic fountain in its center and is definitely one of Stockholm’s showcase neighborhoods. Mariatorget, a central residential area, is the best Stockholm has to offer when it comes to juxtaposing architectural masterpieces with sophisticated art galleries, coffee shops and bars. Stockholmers love to spend their weekends in the park or one of the nearby coffee shops, so come to Mariatorget to meet the locals. The northern part of Mariatorget boasts historic buildings, beautiful cobblestone streets, and one of Stockholm’s best observation decks, Monteliusvägen, from where you can see an amazing view of the city hall and Stockholm’s old town.
