We stopped here for cocktails and they were pretty good. It started to get crowded as we were leaving, but it's a great stop. It's not easy to find but if you do, you're rewarded with a wonderful variety of cocktails to choose from!

+ Great cocktails! Go here for them. Wine is too expensive to drink here. -\+ Service is not rude but not nice either, just ok. - Music is a bit too loud since this is a place to hang out and chat. And too loud music is maybe the reason why some unpleasant customers come here.

One of the few places in Helsinki where you can enjoy nice drinks with reasonable prices. Have visited this place for many years and it has always been a pleasure. Music selections are usually good for a heavy music lover.

If you want a cosy place for a drink and talk with your friends, this is it! Absolutely the best coctails in town! This is a pretty small place and can be crowded on weekends, but the feeling is worth even a short waiting for a table. P.s. Did you notice the name plates on the wall? Ask the bartender... More

If you can manage to find you way to Sling In bar, you won't be disappointed. My wife and I have been there several times, and even as Americans who can't speak much Finnish, we find this bar a lot of fun every time we go. For starters, the bartenders here are happy to strike up a conversation, and much... More

It is a cocktail bar, no food or anything is served. Cocktails are not more expensive than anywhere else, but the quality is very high. The place is small and crowded but you usually find a table there. Music is sometimes a bit too loud to have a decent conversation.

i have been there more than 20 times. It is legendary and the best drink Bar in Helsinki. The prices are very low (Drinks: 8€-9€) comparing to similar kind of places in Helsinki / central helsinki. Also the quality is very good. Try "Apple Pie" or "Snickers". They taste the same than they have been described :)

This bar is quite a small, but the drinks were fine. The bartender improvised a nice cocktail for my friend according to her wishes. Worth of visiting!
