Sling in – Cocktails and Rock music

I can tell you one thing: this bar offers two great things that I’ve never seen merged like this anywhere else: they make fantastic cocktails while great music plays – mainly classic rock music from the 80s onwards.

There is a large selection of cocktails that you can browse through on the PC at the counter or try one of their Top 30 cocktails. They offer all the classics, like a mojito, or some very unconventional ones, like a sea buckthorn margarita. The majority of cocktails won’t sound familiar, but the great bartenders are happy to assist you in your choice or even mix you something off the menu just according to what you feel like. Most of the drinks cost only € 7 on weekdays/€ 9 on weekends which is an amazing deal for what you get.

The cocktail bar Sling In is hidden inside a mall in the centre, which does not seem like the most attractive location, I have to admit. You enter the building at the passage where it says “Aikapiha” and take the stairs up to the bar – you won’t miss it once you find the entrance. On the other hand it guarantees you that not many walk-in customers make the place too crowded. Sling in Bar is probably one of the most established around, they opened in 1999!

Tip: Try their legendary Snickers cocktail. It literally tastes like a liquified snickers bar.
