If you haven't been to the medieval city of Visby, on the island of Gotland in Sweden, you should really start planning that trip. The city has so much to offer and today I thought I would share some of my favorite places for drinks and cocktails, hope you enjoy the read!
It's a restaurant and a hotel, with a gin bar... could it be any better? And it's not like you have a few Gin and Tonics to choose from, they hand you a five pages long menu with more different kinds of cocktails, all made with Gin. I've said it once, but I'll say it again... can it be any better?
Of all the times I have been to Visby, I have never been inside this bar. And now that I have, I can't for the life of me figure out how I've missed it. It's located right by the big open square in the city center, right by the big ruin as you see in the background of the images. It's a perfect place for a bit of a historical feeling.
My all-time favorite place. The upper floor has a British pub feeling going on with the interior design, super cozy and warm. In the lower parts, there's a bit of a dungeon feeling to it, medieval if you like. And then there's the green and luscious backyard, perfect for a warm summer day. They use to have our favorite cider on tap, but they didn't this time, so I am keeping my fingers crossed that they'll bring it back.
How can you not stay and have a drink when the view is absolutely amazing? But to be fair, the view is not the only reason why you should stop here, the drinks are nothing short of amazing. They have the classical cocktails, but with a twist of something special like a dewberrymojito or maybe an elderberrycaipirinha.
