Report this content

It has now been confirmed that the Eatertainment restaurant Harrys will open at the place where Sundbyberg’s legendary nightclub Grand Garbo was previously accommodated.  Inauguration is planned for spring 2024 and the local restaurateurs Petri Utriainen and Mika Savinainen are behind the venture.

Harrys is a restaurant concept within Eatertainment dining that in addition to well-cooked classic food with Swedish flavours, offers guests of all ages music in all its forms, social activities and a place for celebrations and parties – many of the elements that have existed at Grand Garbo over the years. The business will be managed by Petri Utriainen and Mika Savinainen who both have a background in eatertainment and also run other restaurants together. 

“We are so happy to finally be able to tell people about this great news. Sundbyberg is not the same since Garbos closed, after all it was the entertainment venue for the entire northern suburbs of Stockholm and we are looking forward to regaining this position with the new Harrys. There will be music, glamour, dancing, food, drinks and a lot of fun,” believes Petri Utriainen.

Harrys in Sundbyberg will be built and operated according to the restaurant’s new concept and will be one of the businesses in the block that Fastighets AB Balder will construct. The Greta block will consist of four main building bodies in different warm colours, with a timber frame and certified according to Miljöbyggnad Silver rating. Here, Balder will offer 65 tenant-owner apartments, a shared roof terrace and business premises on the ground floor. 

“It has been important throughout the process for Balder to take care of the site both in terms of the design and content and it is very gratifying that Harrys has chosen to establish here with us. The new Harrys will serve as an excellent complement to the current selection of restaurants and entertainment and will contribute positively to central Sundbyberg in general and to Greta’s residents in particular,” says David Johansson, Regional Manager Property Development at Balder.

Construction start is planned for the summer of 2022, and Harrys and the first residents are expected to move in during spring 2024. It is still not clear which business or businesses will be neighbours of Harrys. For more information about the project and the upcoming start of sales, please visit,
