The rather angular exterior of the Waterfront Building does little to prepare you for the warm atmosphere you find inside. Among mismatched velvet chairs, deep sofas and a lively bar, grilled food and great wines are to be had. Griffin’s wine list has classics from Bordeaux and Burgundy but also a good selection of California wines. Champagne lovers also have plenty to choose from on the Griffins wine list.

Savant is a wine bar in Stockholm that changes profile during the day. From early morning it's a café and later in the day it turns into a neighbourhood wine bar with charcuteries and some small dishes. Everything is built around sustainability and the wines are in the natural style. Photos: Dan Lepp, Sandra Backlund

The Sparrow is (despite the Anglo name) a French wine bar and restaurant attached to the Stockholm hotel with the same name. The venue is owned by Grand Hotel and its master chef Mathias Dahlgren has been involved in the cuisine. The wine list is both deep and wide for its size and considering it is a brand new venue in 2019. The cellars at Grand Hotel and Matbaren/Rutabaga have been cleverly raided to add flavour to the new spot's wine list.
