Pubs, wine bars, breweries

We have assembled a list of recommended pubs, wine bars and breweries. Some of them provide local specialties, some are located close to Tieteiden talo and some are just nice places to mingle and blow off some conference steam:

1.      Marian helmi (Snellmaninkatu 17)

A cozy place with a decent selection of beers and wines, located quite close to Tieteiden talo & Arppeneaum.

2.      Bryggeri (Sofiankatu 2)

Brewery-restaurant near the Senate Square, provides five to six beers of their own plus a small selection from Finnish microbreweries. Might look small but there’s usually room downstairs.

3.      Kaisla (Vilhonkatu 4)

A pub nearby the University and the Railway Station that has a very good selection of beers, both domestic and export. Might get crowded especially on Fridays and Saturdays.

4.      Teerenpeli (Olavinkatu 2)

A decent pub in Kamppi (in direction of Hotel Helka) that provides a good selection of beers from Finnish microbreweries plus they also make their own whiskey. Might get crowded on weekends.

5.      Bar of Hotel Torni (Yrjönkatu 26)

A classic place on the tenth floor that has a great view over Helsinki. Serves drinks, wine and beers. This is where Sartre and Beauvoir stayed as they visited the Helsinki Peace Conference in 1955!

6.     Kafe Moskva (Eerikinkatu 11)

A bar owned by the Finnish film director Aki Kaurismäki. Feels like the Cold War never ended. If crowded, try Corona next door!

7.      Latva (Korkeavuorenkatu 25)

A wine bar with a good selection of wines and a fairly good selection of microbreweries. Worth the walk.
