“This place's atmosphere encapsulates the very essence of Finland in the summer: grilling by open fire, buying pancakes or ice-cream, tasting the "Finnish American Dream" of summer cottage atmosphere - close to the heart of Helsinki”

“Siltanen is a popular bar/club at nights with wide selection of clubs (check what's on from their site). It gets packed for weekend nights and the crowd is usually international. During the days and early nights there's a peruvian restaurant called Onda that just moved there. Hands down the best lunch and brunch in town! There's also a nice and big sun terrace during summer months. Go.”
