Incredibly nice crew, perfect atmosphere!

The staff was more than just friendly - their service was just perfect! You can really enjoy sitting outside in the sunshine and listen to their music (good choice of songs!). The barkeeper even served cold water to our coffee - very attentive! Thanks for the nice stay!

I found this place actually quite funny. Some of the staff are Australian but the others pretending to be had me a bit confused but entertained. It has friendly vibes this bar and attracts equal numbers of tourists and locals plus the live music is really good.

As an aussie this place was horrible. I thought it might be a good place to feel at home but felt super tacky. The Irish guy behind the bar was rude. England was playing cricket on TV. Music sounded like we were at a Latin club. Where is all the amazing aussie bands. Would not return.

Sorry to hear you failed to find some fun in our venue, I'm afraid Even after 9 years we have still not been able to get the Australian cricket team to play endless cricket as a stream for our bar however we do usually like to watch the English trying to play for our amusement as well. 😊 as for...

Its a "get your drink on" kind of place. At least they have a variety of shots and beer. Even have Cosmo on the menu (not sure if its any good though). But I think most people should find something to drink here....if they like / dont mind the boisterous crowd :)

"Even have Cosmo on the menu (not sure if its any good though)"??? Then you need to come back and try it!! I think you will find it most enjoyable! Drop in for one of our Sunday Sessions if you fancy something a bit more laid back =) After the suns goes down we tend to turn the fun up... More

We had to call in and take our Finish friends for an aussie beer. The place us very clichéd with corugated iron walls, rugby on tv and crocodile beware signs etc. All in all it is a novelty but a bit of fun and a refreshing home style beer. Well worth a visit

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.
