A Burlesque Dinner at Melt Bar, Stockholm

Melt Bar, Stockholm, We are Nodes, Burlesque

I (Sheida) was surprised that I hadn’t heard of Melt Bar until a friend of mine made dinner reservations there one Friday night a couple of weeks ago. Dinner accompanied with burlesque and jazz performances, in the middle of Stockholm certainly sounded like a refreshing idea instead of the typical dinner out with friends.

Golden Twenties

The 1920’s restaurant and bar inspired by the prohibition New York, is suitably located at the infamous Malmskillnadsgatan 45 in Stockholm – and it really lives up to its expectations! As soon as I entered the restaurant, it felt like being thrown back to the happy 20’s again, the golden age of burlesque.

After hanging in my coat and being seated, we started off our evening by ordering Melt Bar’s famous ‘Punch in Crystal’. It is perfect for sharing and therefore a a great option for a larger company. The drink is presented in a lovely diamond cut punch bowl and served in porcelain teacups. We chose to start with a drink called ‘Obsession’ while waiting for our appetizers.

Inspired by the prohibition era in NYC

Since the theme of Melt Bar is the prohibition era in New York, where alcohol was forbidden (but didn’t stop a great party – as stated on Melt Bar’s website) many of the drinks have a fun touch that will make your dinner experience something out of the ordinary. What about drinking beer in paper bags? Or champagne in teacups? Or having a shot of absinthe? All while enjoying live entertainment (jugglers, dancers, jazz musicians and of course burlesque) throughout the dinner. You don’t necessarily come to Melt Bar for the food – you come here for the good vibe. To experience something different. And we weren’t disappointed.

Pop-up Entertainment

After dinner, some complimentary chocolate truffles and yet another Crystal punch bowl (this time we tried ‘Bootlegger’ consisting of cucumber, apple, lemon, elderflower, mint and gin), we headed downstairs were the show continued. Every Friday and Saturday evening, Melt Bar has some of Sweden’s best burlesque dancers, jazz singers, magicians and dancers performing until 1 a.m. It surely will be a night to remember and We are Nodes definitely recommends you to go! After all, a little party never killed nobody.
