Tjoget is a multi-space venue housing a wine bodega, a beer café, a pan-Mediterranean dining room and a cocktail bar. Conceived and managed by two bartenders, Andreas Bergman and Joel Söderbäck, the cocktail bar has always been the beating heart of Tjoget. Part science, part whimsy, the ever-evolving cocktail menu is a collective effort, which finds inspiration in the traditions and flavours of the Mediterranean – but always with a distinct Scandinavian spin. The signature and award-winning cocktail, Beets by Tjoget, mixes beetroot and vodka with coconut and ginger. Tjoget is located in what used to be a somewhat sketchy part of Södermalm, the largest of the 14 islands which make up Stockholm city. Now eight years in, it draws an international cocktail crowd – but without losing its neighbourhood feel. While always up for a party and frequented by lauded names of the industry, Tjoget is also a place for a quiet beer and sausage. After all, the name is an homage to the latter – a rough-and-ready beer café in Stockholm.
