Five places to meet in Stockholm

Endearingly described as Silicon Valhalla, a tailor-made member’s club in Ivar Kreuger’s old office, and another one functioning as a creative community.

Words Nick Rice


Endearingly described as Silicon Valhalla.
Epicenter is Stockholm’s first ’Digital House of Innovation’. Members are invited to innovate alongside the world’s fastest growing digital companies and creative corporate initiatives. At Epicenter, Swedish and international entrepreneurs and companies meet to collaborate, learn and grow their businesses.— Mäster Samuelsgatan 36,


Tailor-made member’s club in Ivar Kreuger’s old office.
The ’Matchstick Palace’ is the stunning building that is home to this exclusive member’s club, where membership is tailor-made according to each person’s lifestyle. The building was completed in 1928, and was commissioned by the ’Match King’ Ivar Kreuger, at that time one of the richest men in the world. The space offers private rooms, fixed desks or access to the club lounge for work space. On the main floor in the old bank room, a sophisticated business lunch is served daily. — Västra Trädgårdsgatan 15.


A multifunctional members club housed near Stureplan.
GT30 say, ’We believe creativity arises when different types of people meet and there are startups, filmmakers, lawyers, inventors and business angels with us’. The Bakery and Penny & Bill restaurants are fantastic and are just two of the many attractions here, with podcast studio and event rooms. — Grev Turegatan 30.


A members club and creative community.
This homely members-only club acts as a co-working space, with facilities created by Fredrik Carlström, who also founded Austere, a showroom for Scandinavia in the USA. The shop and café are open to the public while members book workspaces and the recording studio. — Nybrogatan 8.
