Between Kallio and Hakaniemi is cozy Siltanen. It’s one of the best bars/clubs at the moment in Helsinki. Siltanen is comfortable and a little bit bigger than an ordinary bar around here. The closeness of Kuudes Linja club is a plus.
In the evenings, especially on Friday and Saturday, a DJ or live music will turn the mellow space into a lively and often quite busy club. Before that there’s a tasty Vietnamese menu available by Lie Mi (So Up). Lunch is served from 11:00 to 14:00 and Late Lunch Specials between 14:00 and 18:00.
Of all the bars around Kallio, Siltanen alone just might be worthy of a trip from downtown. During sunny summer days it has a very comfy terrace, and in winter it’s an escape from a dark and cold reality. So if you don’t go for a drink and tasty food, maybe you just enjoy Oireklubi evenings or Disco Obscura DJ’s and like to dance under genuine surgeon lamps. If so, then Siltanen is a place for you.
