Welcome to A21 - a destination for anyone in love with cocktails & bars. We think drinking and cocktails have been taken too seriously for too long, so we decided to bring the fun back in the game.

It was a quiet weekday evening when we visited. There was a lot of choice on the menu, many using local Finnish ingredients. Several highlights including a 'Sex in the Forest' and one that came in a scented box! Would definitely come here again before a restaurant booking.

A very profersional cocktail bar. Laid back atmosphere and great for pre dinner cocktails. Tried 4-5 different ones. All made with perfection and love. >My favorite, (for some strange reason, I don't remember the name...) served in a flat, circular litle botle. Belive it was orange slices and coffe beans in it.. Absolutely amazing.

We visited this place after asking a waitress at a restaurant where to get nice and tasty cocktails in Helsinki. It turns out this place is amazing. The menu was very simple and the focus in this restaurant was about the drink. The light was dimmed and made an intimate atmosphere perfect for a deep conversation and some nice drinks.... More

This place is great, cocktails are on point. Shout out to the barman who really knows his stuff. I'd reccomend you ask for a Cucumber Sour.

I have had quite difficult relationship with this cocktail bar. Few years ago it was my favorite with excellent cocktails, nice atmosphere and perfect service. The very special thing was the door bell you ned to ring to get in. Then something happened and suddenly service was really poor. Now it has washed the face. Door bell is away, decoration... More

The A21 Coctail Lounge was my favorite bar in Helsinki and they still do have great service and excellent cocktails. The only fact, I dislike is the new interior. I liked the former Lounge style much better.

It's a lovely bar if you are happy to pay the prices. The drinks list is good. We tried to go off-menu a bit but wouldn't recommend it. Stick to the champagne cocktails - they were lovely. A place to take people when you want to impress. I particularly enjoyed the raspberry and champagne cocktail. Note: you have to ring... More
