Sweden Creates the Largest Open-Air Bar

Sweden – The internationally award-winning bar Tjoget in Stockholm, along with leading Swedish beverage experts will be making world-class drinks available outdoors in Swedish nature throughout this summer.

Sweden Creates the World’s Largest Open-Air Bar

Together they will form what may very well be the world’s largest socially-distanced open-air bar. Starting 15th June, visitors have the opportunity to book a seat at more than 16 tables located in some of Sweden´s most beautiful natural landscapes, for a chance to enjoy a selection of drinks and DIY recipes reflecting the country’s 100 million-acre natural pantry.

In 2019, Sweden launched The Edible Country, the world’s largest DIY gourmet restaurant, with recipes developed by Guide Michelin-awarded chefs. The concept, which until today has only consisted of food, is now being expanded to also include world-class drink experiences. It will be a combination of ready-made beverages that reflect local nature and produce together with drinks that visitors can create themselves with ingredients found in the surroundings, based on recipes provided by the beverage experts. In this way, visitors get the opportunity to explore Swedish nature both together with local guides when collecting and mixing the ingredients and when enjoying the various drinks.

“The DIY recipes enable visitors to explore Swedish nature through world-class taste experiences. The country’s 100 million-acre pantry of fruit, berries, vegetables and crystal-clear spring water is open to everyone. We call it the Drinkable Country – the world’s largest open-air bar”, says Jens Heed, Program Director Food Travel at Visit Sweden.

The recipes have been developed in collaboration with four different beverage experts, each of whom has been given the responsibility to represent different regions in Sweden. Rebecka Lithander represents southern Sweden. Lithander has experience from the two-Michelin-star restaurant Daniel Berlin, where she raised the non-alcohol drink packages to the same high level as the food. The tables on the west coast are represented by the local cocktail bar gem Bar Bruno, while on the east coast, it is the world-famous bar Tjoget that will compose the drink menu. Emil Åreng, a nationally and internationally acclaimed bartender and author of the world’s best cocktail book in 2016, represents the northern part of Sweden.

“It is a thirst-quenching journey through Swedish nature. I would say that this is a completely new and fascinating way to both experience drinks and to discover a country and its natural environment”, says Leo Lahti, Bar Manager at Tjoget.

In Sweden, nature is everyone’s and anyone’s playground and place to linger as long as you do not disturb or destroy, mainly thanks to the unique Allemansrätt – the freedom to roam. With the Drinkable Country, Sweden invites everyone to experience the Swedish close to nature lifestyle while at the same time enjoying world-class food and drink.
