“Karjala Beer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

First time in a Finnish bar and drinking Finnish beer, friendly bar staff, they play rock music which is a total win for me and the walls are decorated with musicians caricatures. Karjala beer is great stuff too.

“Best bar in Helsinki”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

A close friend recommended this bar to me. Like everyone else says, the beer here is probably the best in Helsinki. Again, as others have mentioned, the actually give you a full pint which is superb. Also, the barmaid - Katja - was a delight and extremely welcoming. I would certainly recommend the place for all.

“base bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

Amazing, found this bar by sheer luck. I walked in and it was awesome a true rock bar. Firstly the beer are 6 euros, like most place here but the difference is this place actually fills them to the top and there icey cold too. A true beer... service is exceptional, they speak great English and if you need to know anything there more than happy to help. Ok now if you got a favourite rock song you want, you can put it on here.

The crowd are happy, I was here alone the first day and was real easy to make friends. with the tables outside the crowd is always happy. And on the occasion the bar across the street which is owned by the same person has bands on at the front too,

“Nice rock bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

A great place with very cool music! During week it's quiet but on weekend I think it's the opposite. Love this kind of rock bar!

“Good drinks, nice rock!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

This bar is a true rock bar. Usually the rock bars does not offer a variety of drinks but this bar does. They have quite often rock bands playing for free. This bar is small but worth a peek if you like rock :)
