Home away from home

Brought some Finnish friends and was pleasantly surprised to find a friendly welcome and a good atmosphere to show our friends. Just like home, visit if you are in the area.

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.

A travelling Aussie needs a hard earned thirst, you need a big cold beer and the best cold beer is Vic. Victoria Bitter But seriously, I enjoyed the Aussie bar a lot. Loved the beers and the staff were extremely friendly....perhaps because the staff were Kiwi's, Poms and South Africans they probably hadn't met an Aussie in a while!! But... More

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.

Yamess, Manager at Aussie Bar, responded to this review

Glad you enjoyed your visit, strange that you find it nothing special as we try to have as wide a variety of Aussie and Kiwi beers as possible and certainly there is not another bar in town that has similar offerings :) we like to think that keeps us pretty unique. More
