A dog-friendly lunch destination from a Michelin-starred team in the capital of Sweden

Embracing its nautical surroundings, Oaxen Slip is a large, light-filled space.

With retro furniture and crockery, this is a restaurant that offers family-style dining – shared dishes in a relaxed atmosphere.

It is one of the few restaurants in Sweden that welcomes dogs. The owners are dog-lovers, we met their cuddly pug Betty and it was difficult to resist trying to smuggle her out and take her home.

A slice of cinematic history in the capital of Sweden

Located on picturesque square Maria, the Rival doesn’t look particularly imposing from the street but this is an outstanding hotel for experiencing the best that Stockholm has to offer.

A former cinema, as well as its 99 stylishly appointed guest rooms the Rival is also home to a theatre – with bands and shows regularly performing.

Locals come here for a drink or Sunday brunch, but it was a treat to check in and make this our base for our Stockholm city-break.

A floating oasis that is the best summer party in Sweden’s capital

Stockholm is a city that really comes alive in the summer.

A city of islands and bridges, wherever you are in Stockhom you seem to be surrounded by water and the low-rise skyline leaves the city basking in the bright light of the sun.

For a relatively small city, Stockholm seems to have a really vibrant LGBTI community with some fantastic bars and venues.

A classic, modern hotel in the heart of Sweden's capital

With spacious, well-appointed rooms, one of the best things about the Nordic Light hotel is its location – adjacent to the express train that is the best and easiest way to get to and from Stockholm airport.

This SoFo landmark gives you Brooklyn style in the capital of Sweden

Strategically positioned on Nytorget square, Urban Deli is a sprawling grocery store, deli, bar and cafe. Urban Deli wears its community-conscious heart and its politics on its sleeve, while serving up some fantastic food and the kind of atmosphere where you could happily spend the day there.

Our super-cute waiter recommended we try beer from the Stockholm Brewing Co.
'It's made in a garage about 200 metres from here' he explained. It was a good choice.

A vibrant but intimate dining option in the dazzling capital of Sweden

Closed for renovations for over a year, Zink Grill is a local favorite that has recently re-opened. We were there on a Saturday night and it was packed with an enthusiastic crowd.

I loved the service here, relaxed, friendly, but still professional.

We kept it simple with a shared platter of charcuterie to start, followed by a grilled meat platter with chops, sausages, pork belly, and white beans in a rich tomato sauce.

A great start to a night out in Stockholm.

Picture was widely shared on social media, with many applauding the furniture giant

IKEA has confirmed the picture of a rainbow pillow case PUTIN is a fake.

Over the weekend, the photo was widely shared on Twitter and Facebook as the epitome of the Swedish home improvement company's beliefs in equality for LGBTI people.

The rainbow pillow cases were reportedly found in a Stockholm branch, possibly a thinly veiled message after IKEA was forced to close its online magazine over Russia's gay propaganda laws.
