Two members of the Swedish metal band IN FLAMES — Peter Iwers (bass) and Björn Gelotte (guitar) — are partners in a restaurant in their hometown of Gothenburg with a focus on “quality and service.” Named 2112 as a tribute to RUSH‘s “2112” album, the establishment had its grand opening in April 2011.
2112 has been nominated for a “Best Restaurant” award (Göteborgspriset) by the Swedish magazine Nöjesguiden Göteborg.
A three-minute video report on the 2112 restaurant courtesy of Germany‘s Metal Hammer magazine can be viewed above.
“We decided to open a place that was part restaurant with fine dining and part pub with a great selection and a good bar menu,” Iwers and Gelotte told GAFFA. “Both of us love to go out and drink and eat and that is exactly what you can do here. You can start in the restaurant and continue in the pub, or vice versa.”
2112 is located at Magasingatan 5 in Gothenburg.
