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.

We popped in here before dinner (7pm) last Friday evening and were shown to a table immediately. The place was fairly empty which we thought was strange given the reviews on TA, the place probably ramps up later in the evenings. We loved the cocktail menu. In particular the gin & tonic matrix and the 'tastes of Finland' menu which... More

We were lucky to get a table (remember to make a reservation), and were awarded with an extensive cocktail menu. Tried four different cocktails, all were extraordinary both in taste and inventiveness. Really nice place!

The cocktails are really good here and there's a range that are 'Nordic' and include flavours from around Finland. Lovely service and nice atmosphere too.

This place was a great bar and the staff were out of this world! We went around 7pm for a drink before dinner and despite being the only people in there we had a great time! I guess we have our London view on a Friday night with after work drinks so the emptiness did surprise but we weren't to... More

Came here after a meal nearby on a recommendation and so glad we did. The staff were fun and friendly and the cocktails were amazing. Sex in the forest was a deep, fruity drink that really packed a punch. It was a great night out as my head is telling me this morning 😄!!

We were recommended this bar from our restaurant waitress and was so glad she did. It's a small bar that has a great cocktail menu. They can make the "normal traditional cocktails" but also have a great menu celebrating the Nordic scene. The staff are friendly and speak English very well and make you feel very welcome.

Came in for drinks with my husband. The place has a nice, classy feel. We were seated swiftly, served water and the drinks menus. So many lovely choices, from classics to their special Finland cocktails to several g&t options. Device was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable; our waiter was glad to help with choosing drinks, offering bubbly after our first round... More

I was surprised how innovative the cocktails and the concept of that bar were. They use superfood from all over finland to make cocktails. I recommend black currant with gin. Their menu is very interesting and informative as well. Would definitely come back here when I go again to Helsinki.
