Bars & Clubs
In Gothenburg you have some nice pubs and dance places to choose from.
A beer or a glass of wine could be nice after some shopping or why not before a show or theatre. At the summertime you sit outside enjoying the sun and in the wintertime you can huddle inside in the warmth. If you later in the night want to take a dance, then you can choose from some places in town.
