Stockholm - New Year Eve (Dec 31st) - where to be?

Hello, my dear friends from all over the world!

I'd like to ask you a question about spending New Year Eve in Stockholm. We are going with a couple of friends. We are from Russia, my name is Danila. Appreciate any answer and opinion!

The main concerns are: 1) glass of champagne at midnight, 2) watching fireworks with some spectacular view, 3) dinner in cozy place with nice view as well.

I'll accept any order or any combination of these things. For example, it could be like this: dinner at 8 p.m. in Gamla Stan or Södermalm, then walking to Skansen, buying champagne there and enjoying fireworks and glass of champagne at 0:00 a.m. 2 questions arise here: is it easy to get champagne in Skansen at this time? Can I bring my own champagne and drink it outside while watching fireworks?
Or it could be like this: finding some restaurant that is opened till at least 2 a.m., reserving a table (I'll be able to reserve only on 31st in the morning) for 10 p.m. and enjoying New Year fireworks and champagne there :) I'd like this restaurant to be in the center of Stockholm with nice view on Skansen (fireworks). So, maybe you can advise any places like that? And maybe you can advice their web-sites or telephone numbers to reserve a table as well? :)

And another question that has just appeared in my head: are there other good places to watch fireworks, besides Skansen? Of course, champagne is still a requirement (remember this stereotype about "drinking-all-the-time Russians"?) :) I heard, that in Södermalm people celebrate right in the streets. So, maybe there I'll be able to have a good time? Or in any other parts of the city?
So, as you can understand, my questions are kind of organizational or administrative :) I know what to see in this beautiful city, but I really need many particular advices on my questions above.

Thank you so much for your attention!! I will be very grateful for your answers!

Best regards,
Danila.
