Usine in Stockholm is anything but an eyesore. Originally a 2000 square meter sausage factory and former tax agency office it is now a new hot spot for urban dwellers. It is both sophisticated and functional and doesn’t remind you of those pretentious eateries where overwhelming minimalistic interior almost makes you feel unwelcome. The new space, which opened its doors at the end of April this year, includes Restaurant Bistro 38, Bar Poche 36, take away, reception and conference spaces. Usine has been described as “a restaurant that could have been in New York or any other big international city, where one has created a Scandinavian feeling”.
