The Finnish capital of Helsinki lies on the Baltic Sea coast and is a youthful and exciting city filled with energy and modern design. We’ve picked the top ten bars to help you settle into the unique groove of this Finnish metropolis.
A South American-styled tapas bar that probably offers the best mojitos in town. The bar is incredibly popular among locals and visitors, which comes as no surprise because visually, Llamas is one of the more unique bars in Helsinki. The decor is very eclectic and even has a couple of swings hanging from the ceiling. The best part about Bar Llamas though, besides the tequila selection, is that it is open until 2am every day.

Heading over to Kallio district, Bar Molotow is probably one of the more upmarket drinking establishments in the area. The music is a mix of rock, indie and punk and the ambience is considered ‘chilled’ and relaxed. The decoration of the bar is themed around the golden age of rock with a fusion of Scandinavian functionalist design. The drink selection is praiseworthy and some of the cocktails like the Molotov are really good.
