Emma Ziemann, Swedish Sommelier champion 2018 about the restaurant Atelier at Hotel Pigalle in Gothenburg: "I am fond of Art Nouveau... This is a place I go to with my friends who are not wine nerds. The wine list has a lot of things, some straight-up good wines and some gems so that everyone finds something they like. It's a fun decor and you can drink cocktails! It's a place to relax at and just have a good time."

The Champagne bar Kyrkogatan 13 imports their own champagnes which means you can find a unique selection of grower champagnes here, but you will also find grandes marques, and other types of wines. The champagne bar, formerly known as Forssén & Öberg, is one of the Gothenburg favourites of Swedish sommelier champion Emma Ziemann 2018: "It is a magical place to go after work, for an apéro or for a drink on the way home.
