Tjoget, 24 Hornsbruksgatan, Stockholm
The bar formerly known as Linje Tio is a bit like Prince circa 1993 — the name has changed, but the goods are still delivered and the party is always on. A multi-space venue since it opened, Tjoget houses a wine bodega, a beer café, a pan-Mediterranean restaurant and, of course, a cocktail bar. In tandem with the restaurant, the bar seeks inspiration in the flavours and fragrances of southern Europe, Northern Africa, and the Middle East, reinterpreted through Scandinavian eyes – simple serves, pickles and ferments, changing with the seasons. Drinks with gooseberry cordial may mingle on the menu with carrot juice or Turkish yoghurt, and beets are ever present through the ever evolving Beets by Tjoget. Sophisticated but never pretentious, Tjoget was built as a party bar – with a revolving cast of DJs – meant to last, if the owners have their way, 20 years.
