Well, it’s just about that time, folks! You know that part of your Friday where you stare at the clock incessantly wondering why its not moving just a little bit faster? Yes. That time. I’m feeling it today, that is for sure. Applying for jobs is a job in itself, and an unpaid one at that! Anyways, this end of the day Friday feeling has me thinking about one of my very favorite things… happy hour.
I have always loved a good Happy Hour and owe that to the wonderful little hippy town of New Paltz, New York, where I attended college. Although my life feels far away from that precious college bubble, I always appreciate those hours spent with friends at a bar or restaurant after another week of working hard. Luckily enough, I happen to live in a city that takes exceptional care in the design of restaurants, cafes, bars and clubs. It is an interior designer’s paradise. Because there is no shortage of fantastic restaurants, bars and nightclubs, I’m excited to be sharing one with you every Friday.
I’m the kind of person who notices the tiles on the floor, the funky troth sinks in the bathroom, and the clever design details that make a space its own. With that said, I want to share with you a fast food (yes, fast food!) restaurant I frequent fairly often. Vigårda is a hamburger joint that gives you the convenience of fast food with the comfort of a nice restaurant. What I immediately loved about Vigårda was it’s charming, farm-like decor, laid-back atmosphere and huge glassed-in pantry. Not only is their veggie burger fantastic, but their decor is pretty darn cool, too. Oh yeah, and they do serve alcohol, so it is happy hour approved!
Long communal tables add to the casual atmosphere.
The lovely pantry! I love being able to see the actual food that I’ll be eating.
There’s that Stockholm white that I’ve come to love! Fresh, clean, and light.
Old objects and personal details make it welcoming and homey.
Isn’t it just so pretty?!
Ironically, I’m off to the Stockholm Beer and Whisky Festival. Happy Friday, everyone!
