Laid out amongst Helsinki’s metropolis is Bar Bäkkäri, a local Rock n’ Roll venue with a Seedy Sunset Strip Feel. Bakkari is a nitty-gritty throw back to the great days of Heavy Metal, Girls Girls Girls and Jack Daniels.

The Vibe:

Bäkkäri’s vibe is anything goes, do what you will, sleazy Rock n Roll with a 1980 throw back. Dark decor, dim light and loud music plays as you push your way through the crowd of people to grab a drink at the busy bar.

What To Get:

A shot of Fisu, Corona or one of my favorites in Helsinki – Karhu III. Another drink you should try if in Helsinki for the first time is Longdrink: a Finnish Gin drink with Grapefruit juice, created for the Summer Olympics and kept around by popular demand.

The Staff:

Bäkkäri’s staff is friendly but busy, this bar is always packed and they know how to make your drink and do it fast. Get in, get out and get on with it.

Final Thoughts:

If you are feeling like reliving that after party from the days of old, Bäkkãri is the place to be. Decent priced drinks, rock n roll tunes and a busy crowd make this a popular local party locale in the heart of Helsinki.Have a favorite bar or watering hole that needs to be featured on Ben’s Best Bars? Email me here and I’ll check it out when I pass through. Until Next time….Cheers!
