The best hard rock & heavy music bar in Helsinki. Upstairs you find a cool bar with pool table and patio during summer. Downstairs you will find a live music venue with cool interior. Highly recommend to all hard rock & heavy music fans!

Need to find a rock bar in Helsinki? Well this one is slap bang in the middle. If you visit on a busy night - it is popular you might not notice the stairs at the back that lead down to the club. A decent stage for live gigs and if you're not lucky enough to visit on a night... More

... but the service is not so good. I often feel that bartenders are arrogant, especially at the upper bar.

On the Rocks is a rock/metal bar located in Helsinki, Finland. I had passed it on my first trip to Helsinki back in winter of '07 and I did not get a chance to check it out. My second time around I attended I was glad I did! I attended twice, once on a Monday night, and as a nightcap... More
