“One of my favourite Stockholm pubs”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Wirströms is, despite its very Swedish name, an Irish pub that actually has an Irish owner. It's located in a historic building in Stockholm's beautiful old town that was previously a well-known bakery under the Wirströms name, which the owner decided to keep in a nod to history. The fantastic stone walled vaults that make up the cellar/basement floor are a wonderful maze of different rooms, they often host live music (especially blues). The bar has a truly massive selection of beer (you will have to travel far to see a greater number of different beer pumps) and a magnificent selection of whiskeys from Ireland, Scotland and further afield (including quite a number from Japan). Staff are welcoming. There is good pub food, their French fries and aioli are always a winner – as are the fish and chips.
I go to Wirströms regularly, I'm never disappointed. In a city with many bars, this is a true "pub".

“Great Pub, Music, Food”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

This looks like a tiny pub, located off the touristy Stora Nygatan in Gamlastan, but in fact is much bigger inside than the facade would indicate and very good. The Cellar is a warren of tiny rooms and nooks making for an eclectic and cosy pub experience. Irish beers and excellent food that is better than the usual Stockholm pub fare. To round it out they have free music most nights. We listened to a blues band with female vocalist and the setting is incredibly intimate as the band pretty much has to sit with the patrons. Its very crowded inside and the norm is to share your table with others. You order from the bar...leave your credit card at the bar to run a tab... and they deliver to your table. Overall an excellent experience.

“Good place to meet up friends”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

We have been to this pub a few times; always crowded; especially on the weekends; but somehow you can manage to find a place to seat in its maze-like rooms.
The service staff are usually friendly though it seems like the place is understaffed; as we often had to go to the bar and get their attention.
They offer good burgers and fish chips; typical pub food with reasonable prices - and have a good variety of beer (also at reasonable prices for Stockholm).

“Quaint Little Pub w a really cool Cellar”
Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

Stopped in here to get out of the cold and enjoy a beer. They have a large selection of beers costing about 75 SEK per beer. They serve bar food but I didn't try it. Go down into the cellar bc it's really cool... Reminded me of a castle dungeon. They have live music sometimes down there.

“Very Nice Place”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

Everything in Stockholm is very expensive, so this was a pleasant surprise to eat something and drink a beer without having a huge bill.
They have a very good selection of beers and some nice plates, even though we limited ourselves to some appetizers, but everything was very reasonable.
Also the place is small but very nice, and with live music downstairs, it just made the night more enjoyable.
