Hidden between hiking stores and cafes, du NORD brings Swedish cool to Little Bourke st. Step up into the spacious dining room to find beechwood, Nordic tones of grey and white simplicity and subtle quirks of pendant lighting that also holds a hanging nursery.
Behind the mammoth beechwood bar is a knowledgable team of mixologists that can guide you through a vast selection of Öl, Schnapps, Vitt or RÖtt (aka beer, white or red wine), with a sneaky side of popcorn in supplanting the standard peanuts. Prices are reasonable with wine varietals by the glass.
To wash all the Scandinavian grog down are ample Svenska Bitar – bar snacks. Swedish Meatballs($8) soaked with creamy mash and lingonberry or du Nord’s take on the hot dog the TunnbrÖdsrull – grilled sausage encased with mash, cucumber relish, mustard and ketchup wrapped in Swedish flat blanket bread ($9).
For those with a bit longer the S.O.S ($28) is an old-school smorgasbord comprising two types of herring, aged gouda, rye and crispbread, chased with dill pickles.
And just to prove you don’t have to wait till the weekend to have fun, every Wednesday at du Nord is Lill Lordag (Little Saturday). This means market price cocktails, Swedish street food and old school funk & hip hop. Sweden’s very civilised answer to marking hump day.
