By day Riche’s Lilla Bar is a quiet and peaceful lunch venue for business people but, when the clock strikes five, it metamorphoses into one of Stockholm’s liveliest bars with a larger-than-life personality thanks to its careful choice of music and films. The bar has traditionally been associated with music and, true to custom, from time to time still stages small, intimate and top-notch free gigs. At other times well-known DJ’s play popular tracks to really get things going.
