This is actually and old bank that’s been converted to a beer pub. As it is in the middle of town it can get quite crowded on weekends. The tap selection is good and the bottle selection really nice with some hard to find bottles. While I visited I got myself a bottle of Evil Twin/Stillwater/Stone collab of "The Perfect Crime" which I was not at all expecting to find in a beerpub in Finland! :-D Got proper glassware for the beer served as well. Really my #2 place to visit for a beer in Turku, the perfect thing is the #1 place is just around the corner ;-)

Since it’s actually located in an old bank, the atmosphere is very nice. Pretty good selection with even one real ale on tap sometimes. One of the best beer venues of Turku.

Snuck out here for two beers from a cheap-but-crappy beer place we went to nearby (after a sitz party heh). As others have mentioned, looks very good both from the inside and the outside. Felt out of place though as the crowd (and it was somewhat crowded) was mostly people in their 40s and 50s. The prices are also hardly student-friendly, but they’re hardly aiming at students and this IS Finland. Good choice of tap beers - several random Oktoberfests for example (got the Sierra Nevada and the Stallhagen Skördefest the first time). The bottle selection seemed to be very good too, but I skipped on that. All in all a good place to visit here. Retured here once with a friend, tipsy, got me an Ayinger Fest beer. 7 Euros for 0.5l of German lager? Never again. Ordered a small one to boot and got that. Sigh. This place I will however visit again the next time in Turku.

Good selection of beers. Often very crowded so Fri/Sat nights are not the best time to visit. Also, very noisy place. Seasonal beers are not necessarily mentioned in price list, so it might be a good idea to ask the bartender about specialties.

The best bar in Turku. Has the widest and best selection I’ve come across in this city. They have exceptional products from brewers that aren’t even that well-known, and even serve real ale with a product changing every now and then. Good service, sometimes excellent, sometimes not so good. But mostly very suitable. The atmosphere is unique, the only bar I’ve found in this city that has a resemblance to an english-styled pub. Lighting is good and seats are well places, some of the back rooms are rather unpleasant, but the main room is very comfortable.

Great building and interior. High prices. OK selection of bottles. One real ale cask. Bartender didn’t know much about beers (or even what they’re selling) but probably he was there because he knows all about vermouths. Why’s the name Old Bank, not Vanha Pankki? Maybe Turku is so international.

What a beautiful building, real shame it’s wasted on big-spending yuppies. Probably the biggest selection in Turku, hardly anything rare or unique though. Service is mostly wise guys, sometimes OK.

Classy joint. Reasonable selection of big-name quality international beers. I’ve even had a live pianist. Real ales occasionally too. Large selection of Pikkulintu imports.
