Surrounded by pine and birch trees taken from a private estate, guests can enjoy cocktails such as Svensk Mojito (Swedish Mojito) and Warm Äppelpaj (Hot Apple Pie). Food comes from Scandinavian chefs ‘Norse by Norsewest’ of Disappearing Dining Club fame – with Swedish classics such as herring and meatballs conjuring thoughts of long northern nights.
