Cork is a new charming, relaxed and cosy wine bar in the Old Town in Stockholm. The wine list focuses on Portugal, and the food is Mediterranean, leaning mostly towards Italy (you have to try the risotto!). The venue itself is quite small and intimate, with a lot of wood and – of course – cork. The best spot is by the bar counter, where you can chat with knowledgable owner/sommelier Alexandre Carreira, while he serves you some great wine.

A lot of yummy snacks (don’t miss the gougères with porcini, cheddar and thyme!) and wine-friendly dishes from the kitchen of The Flying Elk next door.
