I was a little disappointed with this place and then I learned it is under new management. Pretty lackluster taplist. Bottle offering was rather impressive with uncommon bottles from around the world. Fairly generic American bar ambiance with lots of places to sit including a small patio. Almost completely empty both times we visited.
Old Drink:Simply the best beer selection in any Estonian pub. Possibly up to 40 bottles at any one time, but rotation from a selection of about 50 or more available ones. They have the freshest, tastiest Sillamae beer you will ever have - delicious - they’ve turned me into a lager drinker! Emphasis a little towards Belgian beers, or at least they have some really really good Belgians. UK bottles not so bad either. Decent pub grub, and occasional sunday roasts are well worth having. Really friendly staff. James quite often has time for a chat despite being very busy, and the barmaids always serve with a smile. It’s never a bad time for a trip to drink (except when it’s closed). New Drink: Probably a bigger selection now. But the competitors have expanded too, so this is no longer top (Koht must br, I’m sure). New staff taking a while to learn about beers, but getting there, and now those who have started to recognise me are just as friendly as the old ones. Something’s missing, hard to put my finger on it. Food (existence/hours) is unpredictable. Service, food, and overall down 1,
Really loved this place and it’s one of the best bars in Tallinn for sure. There are around 200 bottles now and there is a great selection of both local beers and imports. Prices are very reasonable indeed. They have English beers here for not much more than I would pay in a shop in the UK. Great service, nice and cosy and solid wifi.

Little disappointment for selection. Maybe i hoped more. Usual small beer bar. Bar keeper was nice.Atmosphere was ok also.
After Helsinki, this place is dirt cheap with most pints running 3-4 euros and bottles of Huvila 4! Decent sized, high ceilings, the requisite beer paraphernalia. Friendly enough staff but not all that outgoing or helpful unless you ask. Decent selection, nice house beers. A must if you’re in Tallinn just be sure to visit the shop as well!
This bar looks very much like an English pub and the beer selection is accordingly,
with mostly English and Czech beer and hardly anything from Estonia. They had 8 beers on draft during my visit and perhaps 50 on bottle. I ended up taking a Budvar on draft before leaving, slightly disappointed. Visited on 2013-06-30.

A bar associated with the Drink Shop around the corner. AFAIK they serve pretty much what they have in the Shop, and at reasonable prices. The tap selection isn’t huge, but has good stuff. Relaxing atmosphere, friendly service. Just a nice, comfy place to stop by, when in Tallinn.
