The ownership of Hasselbacken’s operations on Djurgården in Stockholm has today, Thursday February 7th, passed from Scandic Hotels to Pop House Sweden, the main owners of which are Conni Jonsson and Björn Ulvaeus.
The property will continue to be owned by Pandox AB. Pandox’s portfolio contains 145 hotel properties with a total of 32,200 rooms in fifteen countries.
ABBA The Museum, Pop House Hotel, Cirkus and the newly acquired Hasselbacken are part of Pop House Sweden’s group of companies, which was founded in 2014. With the takeover of Hasselbacken, Pop House is creating the prerequisites to realize its vision of being a top-class entertainment destination.
Hasselbacken is simply an institution and part of the history of Sweden’s hotel and restaurant industry. With its function rooms in a unique environment, restaurant, bar, conference rooms and hotel with more than 100 rooms, it will act as a perfect complement.
– The acquisition of Hasselbacken is a natural part of Pop House’s development and has been part of its strategy from the very start. We have a long-term agenda and will continue to develop our operations on Djurgården, says Mattias Tengblad, Managing Director and Group CEO of Pop House Sweden.
– I would like Hasselbacken to regain its former glory and again become the oasis that it once was. Ever since I saw Kristina from Duvemåla, Chess and Mamma Mia! at Cirkus, I’ve known that Cirkus and Hasselbacken belong together. Hasselbacken complements our other activities and we are now well on the way to realising our vision of becoming a unique entertainment destination on Djurgården, offering theatre and music, says Björn Ulvaeus.
