Pubs – Finland

🙂 it’s a well cited joke amongst my friends that anywhere I go, I usually try to find some good pubs. I’ve deliberately delayed adding this post until I had a few more in the pot. But here is my list for Finland (mainly Helsinki area):

Aussie Bar is a good place which gets very lively after 22h, especially at weekends. This was my local for a while when I was working in Finland during the week. Also does Sky for the football freaks.

Molly Malone’s in Helsinki and now in Vantaa. Molly’s is one of the best places I know to meet new people, enjoy live music or disco – plus there are the regular IESEAF quizzes.

O’Malleys at the base of Torni is superb for live Irish music – on a Tuesday if I remember correctly. Good view of Helsinki from Torni as well.

Teatteri on Esplanadi is a very chilled place. It’s good on a Thursday to listen to the music and sip your gin and tonic.

Crazy German bar that I cannot remember the name of, but near Esplanadi. A small bit of Munchen beer festival in Helsinki.

Kaarle. I need say no more – great place.
