Nice and relaxed place. Decent selection of interesting brews. Did find a couple on tap and there were certainly a nice selection of bottles too. Friendly service and worth a visit in my book. (Visited 2014-03-08)

A bit on the side I suppose. Visisted on 11th of February when all Oluthuone-pubs had a sale on beers on tap. The place was completely empty. I was the only one there and it was the middle of the evening. Really surprising. Decent selection, a couple of taps not available elsewhere. Alright service. Good ambiance even if a bit desolate.

Decent selection of beers on tap and bottled. Cellar like ambience, very cozy with a number of board games available. I havenít tasted the food, but itís ought to be like the generic bar food in other William K bars (toast and other snacks). Usually not that crowded, you can even find places to sit during the peak hours.

A usually quiet place that can draw a crowd of afterworkers from the near-by business. A bit below the street level, so feels like a cozy cellar place in many ways. A selection of bottles, usually atleast something good on tap. And the only place in helsinki I know that stocks westvleterenís products on the beer menu. The food selection consists of toasts (ok, full of all the salt and fat goodery you crave while drinking), peanuts and the likes. A selection of board games. Magazines, books. Cozy.

As Finland is non-smoking the quaint separate rooms are now not an issue. So sit where you please downstairs is larger, but seems quieter as thereís a lower ceiling and no window onto the street. Very relaxing ambiance, and a good selection of high quality beers. I think only one tick for me though last time I was there (so none next time, I presume). Takes part in occasional bottled beer festivals shared by the whole chain.

Friendly guy behind the counter when I have been here (owner?). Opens a bit late, but usually takes a while before people find their way here. Huge beerlist (didnít count when I was there), and the bartender knew what he was selling. Short of a few items, but he could recommend similar beers very well (though I didnít buy them), had too much unrated beers on the list. One of the places I quickly stop by these days to check for new things, otherwise I just take a beer and go. 4 8 11 - 13 brbr Later times Iíve visited this place the selection has gone worse, and the staff hasnít known much about the beers they serve. They were serving spoit koff porter draught and I commented it to them that itís sourish (hapokas in Finnish). 10 minutes later I got a bottle brought to me this is carbonated too (carbonation = hiilihappo). Angry looks when I said I didnít complain on the carbonation, but the sourness (dirty tap?). Later the staff boss gave me a free koff porter bottle, since the crew complained that I was being a hard customer, but the staff boss tested himself and noted the same as me... A tip: educate your staff too...

The non-smokers William K. with a separate room for smokers in the back (ha!:). Quite good selection, if youíre not looking for rarities. The downside is that the place opens rediculously late (17:00). Close to Black Door and Angleterre.

This is close to toprange in Helsinki. Besides from a huge selection of beers, thereís even a selection of beerbooks for customers to read while enjoying the beer. (Nice in case of dull company!)
The bar is strictly divided in two parts for smokers and nonsmokers. And the smokers even have their own little window to the bar, so nobody has to enter the otherís domain. Very charming feature is also the rugs on all the tables.
