Eken Bar Stockholm Reviews
A place to be seen Jun 28, 2010
Eken bar is another well-known Stockholm bar with a clientele that highly endures to been seen. The bar is situated a part of the Hilton Slussen and actually has a very nice view over the city.
I had just said goodbye to Bert and decided to have a beer, enjoy the action and the magnificent view of Stockholm from the bar. The bar area was large and the interior quite modern and strict; it suited the place quite good. The people there were mostly young and fashionable in their visual display; there were also tourist like me.
The waiters and the service level was a different story. The bar had a quite large drinks card with a large variety of fruity cocktails. The complexity and the laziness of the snobbish waiters is not a good combination.
I was standing next to three Russian girls who in very good English placed their orders for red wine and drink and the guy was un-tasting rude to them. I was passed a couple of times by the bartenders’ friends or regulars and I was very close in leaving the place.
The worst thing is that the setting is really nice and so are the products but the people working there is a huge part of an impression and they failed totally.
