If you are looking for an evening out in Kalmar, you have plenty of alternatives to choose from. You will find both quiet places to socialise in, and more upbeat venues with dancing, pub games, and entertainment. Below are a few tips on how to spend your evening!

  • Enjoy entertainment and live music. The Kalmar stages offer a wide selection of events. For entertainment in restaurants and bars, check out Söderport's event calendar with music and other amusements, or the various music, humour and quiz events of Teatervallen.
  • Have a seat in the patio. Around Larmtorget there are plenty of outdoor seating areas, and a lively atmosphere. In the summer, the outdoor seating areas of Zegel Sommar and Bistro Wud in the Kalmar guest harbour are additional, popular venues for spending time with friends.
  • Socialise at the pub. Looking for some proper pub feeling? Then Lilla puben, Scottish inspired Pipes of Scotland, and Irish McCool's Bar is the thing for you.
  • Challenge your friends to fun and games. At O’leary's, Stars and Stripes, and Harry’s you will find various kinds of pub games and activities for anyone with a taste for competition. Who’s up for a challenge?
  • Shake it up at the city’s dancefloors. In the mood to strut your stuff? Both Krögers and Harry’s have dancefloors where you can keep it up well into the small hours. This year, the classic venue Sandra is also making a comeback.
  • Follow your favourite team at a sportsbar. Are you into sports, looking to watch a game with other fans? Come down to O’leary's or Stars and Stripes, both at Larmtorget, where there are lots and lots of pubs.
  • Hang out in bars with great atmosphere. Looking for a bar with just the right vibe? You have many places to choose from. Among others, you might want to pay a visit to DK's cocktail bar, Postgatan, and Loccos, attracting people looking to hang out in a laidback venue.
  • Spend the evening in a historical venue. Inside the old 17th century city wall is the Västerport Bar & Bistro, and FF:s bar och ett litet kök. Those are two great places to find tasty food and drinks, while being reminded of Kalmar’s exciting history.
