It’s been a big couple of weeks for the gang behind Hornstull bar Tjoget. In early October it was announced that they’d landed on the international World’s Best Bars list for the fourth year in a row, this time out at #37. And now it’s also been announced that Tjoget is getting a sibling, with new bar and restaurant Positano opening in the NK shopping centre, with Tjoget’s Joel Söderbäck, Andreas Bergman and Robert Rudinski in the driver’s seat.
Positano is billed an Aperitivo bar, taking its name from the Italian tradition of a couple of glasses with snacks as a pre-dinner ritual. The menu will be full of what you’d expect from a good Italian eatery, pasta dishes, charcuterie, meats and cheeses, along with Italian wines and cocktails, plus high-quality coffee if you happen to be there earlier in the day.
“At Positano we capture a feeling of the old aperitivo culture, but package it in a modern and visually beautiful way with the focus on service, quality and atmosphere. We’ve always dreamt about an Italian bar and cafe, and NK is the perfect place, with lots of people moving through it during the day. Positano will be a natural meeting-place where one can drop in for a quick bite, or stay a couple of hours and even do the most un-Swedish thing possible, drink cocktails during the day before the sun has even gone down”, says Joel Söderbäck.
Positano opens at the beginning of November.
