Central location near Market Place and many hotels. They have live music during weekends and they have large selection of drinks(especially beers and whiskeys). Unfortunately service wasn't that attentive and they also have to make some renovation there

This pub is located downstairs in the Central wing of Sokos Hotel Royal. It was nice to watch the 'Saturday Night Fever' in Vaasa, old American cars passing by the pub. The service was friendly.

The beer selection is the only good think about this pub. Its old and is in a desperate need of a restauration. There are holes in the door to the toilet and the furniture needs an upgrade. But the worst is the three euro they...More

Quite run down. Lousy service, unfriendly and homophobic. They could not even make proper Cuba Libre!

While at staying two day business trip at Vaasa, I found warmly-looking Irish Pub from city center. Pub is quite big and there's enough seats for everyone. Although tooking just couple of Guinness, there was mentioned at desk they're having over 100 different kind of...More

This is the place where to start the evening. Good variety of drinks and beers but sometimes you won't get the real Napue Gin because of the lack of rosemary. The staff is friendly but the dance music is far way too old.

I was working in the area all week and my hotel was around the corner, so I thought I'd give it a try on Sunday as I arrived. There were only around 6 or 7 people in the place (OK, it's Sunday) no atmosphere as...More

Hi, Thanks for taking the time to give us a review. You certainly caught some quiet days, Sunday's aside we usually have a good crowd especially on weekends. Prices are higher than the UK unfortunately but very much normal for Finland. We hope you can...More

Great pub with a good atmosphere. Friendly landlord/manager (Glen) and his staff (English speaking) all work well together and do well to keep up with heavy demand at times, especially at weekends. Massive choice of beers. Try the local 'Bocks IPA', but go steady with...More
