This is not a yacht club!

A home away from home for expats living in Helsinki, the place to watch your cricket, rugby, surf videos and have a laugh at fail army too. The locals love to speak English with the crew and hear their accents. Probably the only bar willing to BBQ anytime of the year on the terrace as well.

It is a small place and very noisy and busy. Good choice for young people who want to have fun and dance. Not the perfect spot to sit down for a beer with people you want to talk to.

They play nice music and it is a great place, but only thing what I don't like that they have 2 toilets for the girls (should have muuch more) and the place is always full on the weekends, so it is hard to have space to dance! Otherwise a great place to party!

HI, great to hear you love the place and partying with us on the weekends, There is actually a third toilet for the ladies to use, Sadly we just dont have the space to build anymore as we are such a "cosy" venue. We hope it hasnt hindered your dancing time on the floor, seems you have been helping the... More

I can imagine this place packed in the evenings, but on a Sunday at 1 in the afternoon we were the only guests. Pineapple breezer and a VB and we were happy!! Friendly bartender. Groovy chunky tables. And we noticed the wine deal when it was too late: buy 2 glasses of wine and get the rest of the bottle... More

Seems you managed to find one of the days the Helsinki "after party" crowd had not surfaced yet =) this can either be a blessing if you want a quiet drink or lead to another drunken lullaby ensuing =) I will pass on your comments to the Sunday staff and we are sorry you missed the ads for the wine...

I've been to the Aussie Bar dozens of times; mainly to hang out with friends. It's cool, relaxed, laid-back..........just like Oz itself :) And the staff...........polite, cheerful, and pleasant to interact with. (Once again, just like it is in Australia) Kudoz.

Went there several time to watch rugby and party late. Always been a great experience and a good bar to meet foreigners.

Great to hear you enjoy yourself with us, Be sure to stay local as the 6 Nations Tournament approaches, OK its just the small teams in the Northern hemisphere but they still give us a reason to shout come game day!! and always a load of expats to "discuss" games with =D More

The bar staff is wonderfully sociable, which makes a change from the normal Finnish atmosphere. They show a great range of sports and the prices are very reasonable. The best bar in the centre of Helsinki by far!

Great place to find international friends in Helsinki, much more open to talk with than average place. The prices are city centre level but the variety of beers is good. Gets to a hot party place on weekend nights. The best place to watch rugby on TV in Helsinki, they show also football and other sports.
