We are so excited! ABBA The Museum will open in Stockholm on the 7th of May.
Have you ever seen the Northern Lights? Nordic colors and shapes was what inspired the Swedish designer Owe Sandström while making these fabulous outfits for ABBA and one can certainly see the resemblance with the Nordic night sky. This picture was taken after the tour started in Edmonton Canada in 1979. The band wore white outfits specially made for each one of them. In common for all were that all garments had blue or silver stripes somewhere on them. To see more of ABBA’s fantastic stage clothes visit ABBA The Museum.

This is the place if you are looking for an atmospheric, cozy local restaurant and high-spirited bar with great music and people. It also happens to one of the hottest LGBT spots in town!
Open everyday April – September
