Summer is here! If you’re passing by any of our Swedish stores, located in Stockholm, Göteborg, Malmö or Falkenberg - keep reading!
We've prepared an insider's guide to the areas around our Swedish stores. A guide with well selected staff favourites. Everything you need to spend time like a local.
First out: Zinkensdamm!
Beyond Retro Zinkensdamm
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!
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.
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.
Enjoy your Södemalm visit! Soon to come, a guide to Stockholm City, Göteborg, Malmö and Falkenberg.
Lots of love,
Team Beyond Retro Zinkensdamm
