Cool Bars x 5
Adjacent to Kuudes Linja in Kallio, Siltanen has become the de facto hipster hangout in Helsinki. Food, drinks, good parties, and, at the end of the day, not that much irony. Hämeentie 13.
Why join the Navy When you can be a Pirate
Handmade smoothies, ramen and domburi from the freshest ingredients at day. Drinks & DJs at night. Annankatu 28.
Bar Bhangra brings a touch of Bollywood to Helsinki in the otherwise quiet Töölö neighbourhood. The interior is a bit over-the-top – intentionally. Runeberginkatu 28.
At small but cozy Los Cojones one can enjoy a chill after-work with friends and dance on tables during the night. Annankatu 15.
Moskova / Corona
Owned by eccentric filmmaker brothers Kaurismäki, these twin bars are a must on your Helsinki visit. Moskova takes you to the USSR, and in Corona, playing pool is the name of the game. Eerikinkatu 11.
