Edit: Iím appreciating this place more and more nowadays. Bruuveri has gone crazy with their pricing, and this place can have some rarer things on tap every now and then. Even stuff not so crowd pleasing, like sours and lighter ales. Seems like someone actually cares about the beer menu. But still, itís a place that is positioned right where a thousand of after-workers go by each day, so as long as they have the pale lagers and specials on cheap wine/bubbly, theyíll do alright. I wouldnít trust them too much on investing in quality beer.
Ol rating: 54.
A good sized bar in the Kamppi shopping center. Part of the oluthoune- chain of pubs, so the selection is mostly the same as in the other ones (which is ok, but not better than that). Occasionally they do add small batches of pretty nice brews. A large, and popular, patio in the summer. A lot of after-work people. Feels a bit like a mix of a diner / bar / livingroom. I donít visit that often, the neighbouring Bruuveri brewpub usually interests me more when Iím in the mood for a beer around there.

An alright place. Good location, poor selection, nice staff though not that knowledgeable. Pour bottle-conditioned alesí dregs in even without asking.

Poor selection. Least interesting of all Oluthuone chain pubs in Helsinki. No interesting beers. Fake interieur. Gives Rotterdam a bad name. Long live Feyenoord!

Iíve visited this place a few times, both the terrace and inside. Both are really nice, but summertimes the inside has been quite hot, so if thereís space on the terrace go there. The service is usually quite modest, and also a bit uninspired. Some of the crew can be quite talkative and actuallty know something about the beers they serve too. The selection seems to be quite non-changing on a bigger scale, but occasionally they have some surprises.

What they said. Been here 3 times. First time it was new, and had a pretty OK selection of beers, some quite novel and interesting. Second time I was in there was nothing interesting at all. Third time ditto. Not bothering with a 4th visit unless someone tells me otherwise. Bollocks, I did, and I had a great beer in dreadful condition. No 5th time, I promise.

I comment this solely by the terrace as I havenít spent time inside other than getting a beer and visiting the toilet. Iím actually quite surprised that propably one of central Helsinkiís best and most popular terraces offers this good variety in beers. I canít comment on the staff very much, but they are friendly and know which glass to serve your beer from. The inside of the bar seemed pretty tacky..

A new chain pub, decorated in a "old" marine style (the fake dirt didnít actually impress). Didnít find it very pleasant to stay at, either, although there were not many people at the time. Selection was quite poor, Chimay blue was served ice cold (which was bad!) from a La Trappe glass (which was ok). What can you say about a place thatís specialized in cheap Dutch lagers... A good place to pop in for a quick one, if youíre going to see a movie in Tennispalatsi (about 50 meters across the square).
