CDLP is a luxury essentials brand that's shaking up the market with its sexy and sustainable staples. It was founded in Stockholm, Sweden by friends Christian Larson and Andreas Palm, who have made a name for themselves as purveyors of cool and true tastemakers. Who better to tap up then, for the ultimate low-down on what to see, eat, do and drink in the Swedish capital? From chic bars to inspiring architecture, these are the best places to visit in Stockholm, according to one of the city's most dynamic duos...
Christian: An apartment in Vasastan that I share with my fiancé Sophie and our frenchie Boo, and the bakery just below.
Andreas: I just moved to a new apartment in Kungsholmen, and on most weekends and holidays I spend my time in a house in the archipelago.
Christian: Electric scooter or skateboard.
Andreas: Bike or walk.
Christian: My weekly pizza with red wine at Babette.
Andreas: Björn Frantzén and his 3*** flagship is in a league of its own, although his newly opened bistro Astoria has become our new favourite. If you go, don’t miss saying hi to Stockholm's legendary bouncer Kebba, who fronted our latest Mobilité campaign.
CF Hill is the best art gallery in town that always shows interesting artists. And the photo exhibitions and location of Fotografiska is always worth a visit, also for the great view of Stockholm.
The Stockholm Public Library is cool, designed by Gunnar Asplund and a prime example of Nordic modernist architecture, and the Royal Castle is also cool with its square shapes.
Christian: I take our dog out of the city in my vintage Lotus Esprit.
Andreas: I catch a Brazilian jiu jitsu class at SPR Athlete factory or a walk around Skeppsholmen, which provides the most beautiful view of the city.
Our favourite store JUS has the most curated fashion brands in town, as well as the most interesting local designers ranging from jewellery to hats. And their team is just wonderful. Their expertise is second to none and they will gladly guide you through their selection.
Riche for weekdays and Hotel Diplomat's Butiken for the weekend.
Max’s Burger's is our national burger chain sourced locally. Get a takeaway halloumi burger and sit on a bench in Kungsträdgården or another of the many parks and bridges.
Teatergrillen has an intimate circle-shaped bar with super nice bartenders to start off the evening.
We’ve thrown some pretty good parties in the CDLP studio lately. During summer we drop by Under The Bridge, an open air space that books good DJ’s and acts for daytime sessions.
Andreas: I love Torpedverkstan restaurant at Skeppsholmen.
Christian: Zita Cinema - a cosy cinema showing a curated selection of films.
Christian: I love all the water around the city the most, since it’s built on 14 islands.
Andreas: That you have stunning beauty around every corner in the city, and tens of thousands of idyllic islands in the archipelago that are easily accessible with public boats.
