We at restaurant Spesso are thrilled to introduce a new addition to the dynamic and vibrant bar scene on Malmskillnadsgatan. We proudly present Spazio, a new rooftop bar and event space that has opened its doors twelve floors up at Malmskillnadsgatan 38B. Spazio is not just a bar; it’s an experience offering a spectacular 360-degree view of our beautiful city, Stockholm.

As part of the already established duo of Spesso and Tetto, Spazio perfectly complements our vision of offering unique and memorable experiences. With Spesso as a place for exquisite dining and Tetto as a lush rooftop bar inspired by Capri and New York, Spazio now takes our ambition to new heights. At Spazio, our guests can enjoy an unforgettable panoramic view while savoring our exquisite drinks and light dishes.

Spazio is much more than just a place for drinks and mingling; it is a venue for events and social gatherings. With a capacity for 80 seated guests, we offer a mix of comfortable sofas and armchairs that create a relaxed and inviting atmosphere. This makes Spazio the perfect place for corporate mingles, after-work gatherings, and private events. Our ambition is for every event at Spazio to be a memorable experience, whether it’s a casual mingle or a more formal affair.

The menu at Spazio is carefully crafted to satisfy all tastes. Our range of drinks includes everything from classic cocktails to innovative and seasonal creations. For those who prefer wine, we offer a selection of carefully chosen wines that pair perfectly with our light dishes and snacks. We are also flexible and can adapt our menu for special events, meaning we can tailor snacks and small dishes to our guests’ preferences.

The name Spazio, meaning “space” in Italian, reflects our desire to create a unique and meaningful place for our guests. Just like Spesso and Tetto, we have chosen an Italian name to honor the culture and atmosphere we strive to convey. Since Tetto opened in 2021, our goal has been to create an environment where our guests can feel transported to a lush oasis in the middle of the city, and with Spazio, we continue to realize this vision.

Spazio is open from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM every Tuesday to Saturday, giving our guests plenty of time to enjoy the sunset over Stockholm while sipping on a perfectly mixed cocktail. The entrance to Spazio is through Tetto, making it easy for our guests to move between our different spaces and experience everything we have to offer.

We at Spesso are incredibly proud to present Spazio and look forward to welcoming both new and returning guests to this fantastic new spot on Malmskillnadsgatan. Welcome to Spazio!


Spesso & Tetto

Summer and spring have arrived in Stockholm, and with them, we are reopening Tetto, our popular terrace. A visit here promises not only magnificent views of the city but also an experience of new and fresh drinks, crafted to suit both sunny afternoons and mild summer evenings. This year, Tetto takes its creativity to new heights with a drink menu focused on innovative flavor combinations, offering guests a chance to explore both classic and more avant-garde cocktails.
Beyond the menu changes, the terrace Tetto is planned to expand further during the summer. This expansion is intended to enhance and enlarge the current space, allowing more visitors to enjoy the vibrant atmosphere and the stunning views over Stockholm. Expect an even more engaging and welcoming environment where you can socialize and fully enjoy the summer.

At Spesso, we have also opened our outdoor dining area, where you can enjoy the best of Italian cuisine in a relaxing outdoor setting. We have updated our menu with several new and exciting dishes, including a seasonal favorite—spring lamb with Jerusalem artichokes, and an early start with green asparagus cooked in exquisite citrus butter. This dish is just one in a series of creative and flavorful creations that Spesso offers, all highlighting fresh, local ingredients and the versatility of Italian cuisine.
If you’re in the mood for a smoky twist on a classic cocktail while at Spesso, try the “Absolut Smoky Piña.” This drink combines Absolut Vodka Smoky Piña with Falernum, a sweet spiced liqueur, and is topped with grilled pineapple for a rich and flavorful experience. Perfect for those who appreciate a cocktail with a distinct and powerful blend of sweetness and smokiness.

We at Spesso and Tetto want to offer a harmonious combination of excellent food and drink, and to make this duo one of Stockholm’s most sought-after destinations for both locals and tourists. While Spesso provides an experience of culinary finesse, Tetto offers a relaxed spot for drinks and socializing under the open sky. Together, they create a perfectly balanced experience where each visit is a delight for both palate and spirit.
So, when you are in Stockholm next and looking for a place that truly represents the city’s vibrant life, be sure to stop by us at Spesso and enjoy Tetto’s terrace.

Our restaurant manager and head sommelier, Janni Berndt Dahl, is Sweden’s first female Champagne Knight!

We at Spesso are immensely proud to announce that our very own Janni Berndt Dahl has become the first Swedish woman to receive the highly esteemed title of Champagne Knight, an honor awarded by L’Ordre des Coteaux de Champagne. This historic moment marks not only a milestone in Janni’s career but also for gender equality within the wine industry.

Janni, who serves as both the restaurant manager and head sommelier here at Spesso, has played a pivotal role in the success of our restaurant since its inception in 2020. With an impressive background from several renowned restaurants and as the chairperson of the Swedish Sommelier Association, Janni continues to inspire and lead not only our team but also the broader sommelier community in Sweden.

L’Ordre des Coteaux de Champagne, which has its roots in the French 17th century and was revived by François Taittinger in 1956, recognizes individuals who demonstrate exceptional skill and passion for Champagne. As a member of this exclusive group, and now alongside Swedish Champagne masters like Richard Juhlin, Janni is a true ambassador for both our restaurant and Champagne as a whole.

We are tremendously proud of Janni’s groundbreaking achievement and look forward to celebrating this with both our team and our guests here at Spesso. Congratulations, Janni, on this well-deserved honor!
