See you later from the Theater bar in Kulturhuset

By on December 1, 2018

At the turn of the year, the Kulturhuset Stadsteatern in Stockholm will pause the operation for 18 months for a comprehensive renovation of technical installations for electricity, plumbing, heating, cooling and ventilation. The architect Peter Celsing’s characteristic creation at Sergels Torg is almost 50 years old and no major real estate renovations have been made since then. This also includes the theater bar which during the renovation period makes a break and opens again in the autumn of 2020 while the theater moves back into the house.

– I’m already craving to get the doors open again, says Mats Tjärnstig, location manager, we will really use the time to sharpen the business and open in even better vintage. For two years, we have updated the interior and the environment in the Theater Bar and will be completely ready with our new expression at the opening of the fall of 2020. Then something new and exciting awaits you in a modern and vibrant Kulturhus.

Maria Stridh, President of the Teaterbaren, shares Mats’s vision of the development and talks about the vision for the theater bar 2020.

– We want to be a up-to-date restaurant that interprets the contemporary, the theater, the exhibitions and the cultural activities in the house, while taking a position in the current conversation. Together with the other owners, we will begin an exciting development trip for the theater bar.

The theater bar’s restaurant and café activities are a popular retreat for culture-minded and food-minded visitors in the city. The theater bar occupies most of plan 2 in Kulturhuset and from the panoramic windows, guests have spectacular views of Sergel’s square and the crowd in central Stockholm. The restaurant, which recently celebrated its 20th anniversary, has been run in the same direction since 1996 with CEO Maria Stridh at the head and site manager Mats Tjärnstig who has directed the business for all years.
