Pikkulintu used to be one of the best beer bars in Finland and probably the best whiskey bar in the country. They have amazing selection of whiskey and still pretty good selection of beers. The beer taps are regularly rotating. The location is definitely off the beaten track.

You would never find this place accidentally; it requires a metro ride and a map. But it is worth it. Not only a great selection but also professional staff to answer all your whiskey and beer related questions. Don't miss i!

For the whisky enthusiast, this is The place to visit in Helsinki, nay Finland. Hundreds of rare and unique bottles in a beautifully curated selection for rather reasonable prices. They also have a good selection of beers, and not a single crappy lager on tap. Oh, and the staff is friendly and quirky, too. Perfection in an un-assiming location. A... More

A friend of mine lives next door and I needed to see him, so we agreed to meet at Pikkulintu. My first visit, though I'd heard lots of good about them. Well. Crowded on a Friday night, people seemed to have a good time, beer selection very nice, BUT there was something missing... Like a professional attitude. "Bourbon? Phew! Vodka?... More

We came here on a Friday night around quitting time so it was very busy! The beer selection was really good though, just maybe try to go at a less busy time.

The atmosphere is not very nice, but they have good selection of beers and whiskeys. Location is not very good. However, as a bar in a sleeping district they're quite nice and even I go there once in a while (and I'm not a fan of "local" far off center bars).

Lots of great beers from Finland and also other countries. Also good whiskey collection. Located near Puotila metro station. Easy to go by metro.

The selection of beers and whisky is great. Ask the owner about the liquids and he will give an excellent briefing about the stuff he is selling. Only 2 minutes walk from Puotila Metro station. Chosen many time by the connoisseurs in the TOP 5 in Finland.

This little bar is located a bit off from the city centre but is worth the trip (15-20min with subway). The place packs a broad selection of beers both local and international, with many highly interesting and hard-to-find brews. Besides the beers, there are over 500 Scotch single malts that should keep the aficionados satisfied more than well. The only... More
