Located on Kamppi, close to the shopping mall, this was a pleasant brewpub, close to my hotel. Big corner pub in the same building as Hotel Presidenti. Modern Scandinavian interior, calm and relaxed athmosphere, with 16 beers on tap. I had a flight with 4 x 25 cl for 17 Euro. Very good service from the female bartender, wrote up notes with every beer and placed them with the corresponding beer. I had a hot tapas plate to the beer, very good and tasty. WiFi worked, a place to relax with some nice beers.
Part of a big Finnish pub chain with head brewery in Lahti. This pub is special as it has very small brewery on site, so along with 6 taps from the head brewery you have a chance to get one or two local brews.
Surprisingly stylish, but still a nice atmosphere. Friendly and helpful staff and a fairly decent selection of beers. Did also get the chance to try Finnish whisky. Quite central location so worth a visit if you’re in the area.
A playboy- lounge / jazzy modern bar-restaurant in the middle of Helsinki that serves their own brand of brews. Some find it annoyingly clean and stylish, but I think it’s quite comfortable (if you’re able to score a couch) and enjpyable. Right near the Kamppi shopping center, so it draws a crown easily. The food is better than your average bar, and they have music events every so often. The beer is a bit expensive, even in Helsinki- standards, but it is the only place where you can find a good selection of their own brews.
same as Kevin, Very sterile shopping center feel, patio located in a square between mall and office buildings. Cold service, nice tap variety but mediocre quality control. Worth a stop for local stuff.
Great ambiance if you can actually get seated somewhere and like the jazzy lounge setting. Service is great to the tables and the waiters are nice though the bartenders tend to be a bit standoffish if you ask for something that’s not on. Which brings us to the selection. It’s just their beers which is not surprising, considering it’s a brewpub. However when the selection is a pale lager, a dunkel, another dunkel and a couple of weizens, it gets a little bit boring. I hear they’ve added some new ones nowadays and they do have seasonals, but this was during wintertime and nothing properly dark and roasty was on. Tends to be a bit on the pricey side.
