I found this place while wandering around on a Monday night looking for beer. It's a friendly theme bar with expats and locals (and locals looking for English speaking expats.) There are happy hour specials which makes drinking a little more affordable in expensive Helsinki. A good place to hangout. I bumped into a few friendly Finnish girls who wanted... More

Typical pub atmosphere. Only employs Australians. Has indoor and outdoor seating. Sports usually on the TVs. Staff pleasant, but other than the unique staffing, nothing special. Safe place for a pint.

First day in Helsinki, googled what bars there are in the local area and Aussie Bar comes up. Let's get down there and have a look. On my first appearances I was impressed. Seems exactly like an Aussie bar should be. Walk up to the bar and created by two smiling faces - An Aussie woman and a South African... More

Great to hear you enjoyed our bar so, I'm afraid there is not much we can do to impact on prices here in the City but if you drop by on a Monday or Tuesday we have some great deals to offer! Enjoy your travels and hope the Sun is following you!! More

Didn't really want to write a review of this kind as it may have come across has a bit of a fix. I can assure you it isn't. Been visiting here on and off for years and love the place. Was completely taken aback one afternoon last week. Called in for a quick drink which turned into a few. All... More

This is one of the few places in Helsinki where a "theme" actually works without it getting all cheesy. I suppose it has much to do with the fact that you got real Aussies (note, they speak English, not Finnish) behind the bar not just some freckled wannabe surfer dude from Lapland (no offence to such). The staff is super... More

I lived in the Kamppi shopping Center apartments, and whenever I opened the window, I'd see this bar with a funky upside-down sign, so I thought I might check it out. I went there with my boyfriend and it's one of the coolest nights I've had in Helsinki. Coldest beers, great cocktails and music playlist. It's warm, friendly and casual.... More

What a place! I visited on a recent trip to Helsinki and had a great time - managed to make it back a few times before I had to come back to Australia. A great bar, fun and friendly atmosphere and a good place to catch some sport or live music. Despite the name, the bar seems to be frequented... More

Even if we are slightly older (=very much more older) than the rest of the gang there, we still enjoy the atmosphere, great service and easy-going mentality of the place. Go there!

Age has nothing to do with it as a wise man once said...or was he just drunk i am not sure. Our loose mentality in here helps ignore much in the way of age differences, its all about attitude and appetite for fun! More

The bar is situated reasonably near to the Kamppi Chapel of Silence. A fact that makes me chuckle everytime. This place certainly isn't silent. Often a boisterous atmosphere in a restrained way ( i.e no personal jibes going on just hearty banter) Good place to catch some sport and no doubt a good place to witness someone from down under...
