Great pub! Part of the "Fish reastaurants" (fishy names only, not serving fish to my knowledge) of Helsinki. Good selection of craft beers and decent enough finger foods to accompany them.

If you want to have good beer in good zen mind mode you come here. Peaceful environment with classic interior design. You can feel some old Helsinki here. Maybe it's something like functionalism or art deco from start of the century in the design.

I love this place. It's fairly large in terms of seating but has this cool neighborhood bar kind of vibe. The beer selection is extensive. The bartenders are very friendly and do their best to explain (or let you sample) what's available depending on taste.

The selection is good and I'll bet you can find yourself a pint to fit your taste buds. Also some local brews available, some even pretty rare ones. If not totally mistaken also the whisky selection is pretty ok.

This is a pub in an interesting part of the city, with a real "neighborhood feel." It is not fancy. Seems as though it has been there for years. But it has a comfortable, well-worn atmosphere, with a good crowd, seemingly mostly neighhborhood people. You will find a few tourists, but not many. You kind of have to know it... More

No loud music which means it's nice to meet friends here. You can actually hear them talk. Beer and whiskey selection is fabulous, as long as you have some money to spare. It's not a cheap place. It's possible to reserve either half of the main room or the secret backroom if you guarantee to bring enough friends. For free,... More
