The Opera Bar.

Mingle by the sea. The Göteborg OperaBar received a complete facelift in 2014 and now boasts brand new décor.

You’ll find it on the second floor, above the main entrance. The OperaBar opens two hours before the performance starts.


“The Opera Bar has its own head chef and offers a fantastic menu, including the Swedish classic Open-faced Shrimp Sandwich. We also have a special wine menu which includes several unusual wines served by the glass. Many of the wines are organic or biodynamic”, says Ousainou Mbye, head waiter and sommelier of The Göteborg Opera.

If you’d like something to eat during the break all you need to do is place an order with us before the curtain call. If you’d prefer to just have something to drink you can of course order this at the bar at any time.
