Great atmosphere and really amazing selection of drinks. There are not enough good quality bars in Espoo, but the Gallows bird is a nice exception. Highly recommend going there.

Second time here with friends to celebrate start of summer. Plenty of beers, said that they have approximately 250 beers. I liked very much Fat Lizard from Espoo Brewery! It´s tasty and worth of money, small but Fat Lizard 4,5 e.

From the outside looks like a long closed down dingy place,but get inside,friendly staff and good service,decor more like an old british pub,good atmosphere and great selection of beer's and cider 's. Only get to visit twice a year and looking forward to my next one. Bit pricey but worth it.

Obviously the best place for beers and whiskey. Huge collection! Cozy feeling, music is not too loud and overall good service. If I ever want a good beer, my journey would end up here!
