We popped in after dinner and ended up staying for a couple of drinks. Bar staff very friendly and recommended us some record shops. It was pretty quiet but there was a huge festival on whilst we were there so think most people were out...More

Stopped here for a drink very late at night when going back to the hotel. The atmosphere was very good. The crowd mostly consisted of metalheads probably due to the fact that there had been many metal gigs in Helsinki earlier in the evening.

I was there with colleagues and customers. It is heavy/rock'n'roll Bar. Reasonable prices, kind service. Nothing bad, nothing really special except music.

For those looking to stick to more English beer there is a range of Fullers and familiar cider. But for those looking to try something new this place is a goldmine. Twisted Thistle and Hoppe IPA particularly recommended.

First of all I didnt smell any urine at the bar area or at the places to sit. When we were there a band was playing. They could have been a bit quieter because talking was difficult. Nevertheless I really enjoyed the time we had...More
