Housed in a former furniture store (and using the remaining furniture) Grill is the epitome of Swedish chic. It is hip, but in the most appealing and effortless way. The room is divided into a number of distinct spaces, from hunting lodge to bordello; there are neon lights and leopard print walls, a glorious collision of styles and patterns it’s chaotic and yet somehow it works. There’s an open kitchen in the centre of the space and a small stage for live performances; in the main bar area classic and modern cocktails are served alongside an impressively thick wine list. As the name suggest, grilled meats (and fish, vegetables, even grilled fruit) are the order of the day and the restaurant features both a rotisserie grill and a brick oven, so customers have a range of options over how their meal is prepared. The crowd is cool and the place has a nice feel about it; it’s particularly popular as a brunch spot.
