Owner description: 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.

Found this place on a stroll, liked it so much, came back with friends, who all agreed...fantastic cocktails. Like the Finnish connection to the cocktails, and lounge decor. Open seating and a great spot to try some new martinis/drinks. Not too busy mid-week, and a definitely worth a stop for a few drinks

This place has a very extensive cocktail list - they are serious about their stuff and people say it is the best cocktail bar in Helsinki. The inside is very plush, flowing curtains, clubby soundtrack. Slightly contrived but nevertheless a good place to start the night. The bar next door, bar loose offers a complete alternative - grungy, rock and manic - also interesting as an antidote!

If you got lots of money and like the high class life style, you´ll love this place. To enter, you gotta ring the doorbell and they have table service (very rare in Helsinki in a bar). The cocktails are really amazing and the waiters are very friendly. Fancy interior.

I do care a lot about value. And I do set very high standards for any establishment that charges high prices, as I have spent my whole humble life eating & drinking.
In my modest opinion, A21 is one of those places where you will be happy to pay the price.
The drink selection is awesome, the best in Helsinki by far. It is relaxing and cosy, a place for those who want to enjoy without the massive crowds and high volume noises.
Cocktails are prepared professionally, and don't mind if they take their time, as they follow traditional old school recipes, and the drinks are worth the wait.
Go on your own and have an Old Fashioned prepared with Zacapa Rum, take your girl for a signature rhubarb martini, or go with your crew and book the private room in the back.
Definitely one of the best bars around, in Europe.

This is a place you won't find many foreigners and it also has no signage to indicate it's there. Entry is by doorbell. This bar is a super chilled and atmospheric cocktail lounge and a true experience. Any flavour or vibe you're feeling for a drink, the bar tenders and master mixologists can concoct a symphony of flavours. Great place to try new innovative cocktails after dinner, kick back and enjoy the company of friends. Superlative.
