Neighbourhood Guide - Falkenberg

Neighbourhood Guide - Falkenberg

New week new city! Hello Falkenberg! A real summer city <3

We opened up our store here, in the new sustainable part of the city - Kvarteret Hjulet - during fall 2020. You’ll find our store in Gallerian Stortorget.

Falkenberg is a perfect stop if you’re travelling the west coast and down south in Sweden. An idyllic small town with long, dreamy beaches. 

Our team picked some must-go-to spots! Enjoy; 

Skrea Strand (Beach)

One of the most popular beaches in the area! 2 kilometers of sandy beaches and lots of nice restaurants, bars and activities to do. This is a classic Halland beach, with super soft sand, and almost no rocks / stones in the water. Some of the nearby businesses we love is Strandbaden, Ocean Hotel & London Bus Catering.


Rådhustorget 1a (bar & restaurant)

In the city centre of Falkenberg you find this "gastrobar", erasing the borders between bar, reasaturant and the kitchen. Focus is to create a relaxed vibe and a space to enjoy the company, no matter if you want to just drink something or have som snacks or a proper dinner.


Falkmanska (coffee/café)

Wanna grab a coffee, catch up with a friend or just find a space to get some work done - Falkmanska is your go-to. Their super cozy backyard is the perfect hide away if you need a break from the beach and some refreshments.


THE landmark with a big L! Tullbron is a stone bridge built in the mid 18th century. An iconic monument and a classic Falkenberg symbol. Take a walk over this historical bridge, and you'll soon reach...


 Lilla Napoli (pizzeria)

Pizza heaven. Lilla Napoli, located at Halmstadvägen 1, a 5-10 min walk from our store is a mecca for pizza lovers. People from all over the country is travelling to get a slice and experience the hype. This place is religiously dedicated to pizza - and the surrounding area is less important. Just how we love it.

Welcome to Falkenberg! <3

First out: Zinkensdamm!

Beyond Retro Zinkensdamm
Brännkyrkagatan 82

Welcome to our beloved Södermalm store - this shop is located on a back street to the lively, big Hornsgtan. The area is a relaxed and attracts creative people in all ages. Start off your day browsing out 15.000 plus hand-picked vintage- and seconhand pieces, before you go explore this cool neighbourhood :)

A short walk behind our store - you'll find what we would say is the best view of Stockholm, this lovely place is called Skinnarviksberget. Perfect for an after work or a picnic.


Cross Hornsgatan and you'll find Krukmakargatan. A cozy street with several cool concept stores and some bars.

We love speding time at Papercut, Krukmakargatan 24. A small space - but filled to the top with inspiring, international magazines. This place is for sure magazine heaven!

Papercut online shop, or @papercut instagram

On the same street, just next door to Papercut - you'll find the artistic flowery Boz Art, and the concept clothing store Nitty Gritty.

Further down Krukmakargatan 22, you'll find the hidden gem Bar Hommage. This cosy restaurant and bar is located in an old fire station. The interior is dreamy and gives us serious parisian vibes. Sitting outside with a glass of cava in the summer transforms Södermalm to Marais for a lil' while.

A plus that you can bring your dogs <3

Strollin' down Hornsgatan, you'll soon reach a small square named Bysistorget. This is a Beyond Retro favourite spot, and foremost we love Kaffebar, located at Bysistorget 6. Perfect for a good Swedish fika, and great for working/studying as well as catching up with friends.

Close to Bysistorget you also find Mahalo, a vegan café/lunch place, Lao Lao - a chinese lunch place and the nice restaurant & bar Häktet

Keep walking down Hornsgatan, towards Slussen, and you'll come to Mariatorget. A really idyllic area of Södermalm. Here you'll find great flowers and fruits, park life, cozy restaurants and concept stores. The area of Mariatorget is vibrant, but still chill - the perfect place to meet up and hang out with friends.

Make sure to check out some of our favourites places surrounding Mariatorget, such as: Stikki Nikki Gelato, St Paul Bageri, Sankt Pauls Bokhandel.

Enjoy your Södemalm visit! Soon to come, a guide to Stockholm City, Göteborg, Malmö and Falkenberg.

Lots of love,

Team Beyond Retro Zinkensdamm
