Located in Stockholm’s historic Brunkebergstorg, Blanche & Hierta honours two progressive figures from the turn of the century – August Blanche and Lars Johan Hierta. The two men were at the forefront of free speech and press, and Brunkebergstorg – a favoured spot among the social elite – was where the dialogue resided. Today Blanche & Hierta carries on the square’s rich tradition of riveting conversations over world class wine and coffee.
