This has become one of our favorite spots in Helsinki! No matter what night you go there it is filled with people in its warm inviting atmosphere where you can meet and have a great conversation. It is a gathering place for many locals and visitors, business people, students - everybody. It has a huge selection of beers (olut in Finnish - hence the name) with many local Finnish craft brews as well as beers from all over the world. It is convenient to the Kaisineimi metro station - just up to the street level and across the street. There are two entrances with bars at both - they each have a different selection of beers on tap so it is worthwhile to see what you might want first - but you can sit anywhere on the tables and sofas spread in the 3 rooms. They have a selection of ciders and other drinks as well, during the Christmas season they have the local Glogi - served with red wine, vodka or without alcohol. They also have a small selection of food - I would recommend one of the "toasts" which is like a grilled sandwich with different combinations - they are iso-large and filling a good value for the price if you need a something for lunch or dinner. The wait staff are great and fluent in several languages - Finnish and English of course - but also have heard orders in French.
This is a great place - so if you are in town for a night or a local this is a perfect choice!
