On the charming street Sysslomansgatan, you can find several restaurants, second-hand shops, beauty salons, and art galleries – and now, there’s a new addition in the form of Café Bamå. The café has focused on quality both in its interior and its menu. You can enjoy your coffee in the stylish café area or sit down for some people-watching from the outdoor seating during the warmer months.

Kaliber Bar - A Rock Bar with a Touch of L.A.

Kaliber Live is one of Uppsala’s busiest concert organizers, so it’s perhaps not surprising that they’ve taken the leap to open a bar where rock music truly takes center stage. Classic rock bars in Los Angeles and Hollywood have served as sources of inspiration – the decor is filled with stylish details like guitars, band posters, and a working jukebox. Both DJs and live music performances will be featured here.

Opened: September 2023

Pins and Games - Bowling and Games for the Whole Family

Pins and Games is the largest bowling alley in Uppsala, with 18 brand-new lanes. But it’s not all about bowling; they also offer state-of-the-art dartboards with a camera system that keeps score, golf simulators, and shuffleboards. Soon, a restaurant will also open for those whose appetites are piqued by the activities. Pins and Games is located in Fyrislund, approximately 15 minutes by bus from central Uppsala.

Opened: August 2023
