The beginning of the 90s Depeche Mode was at the foundation for my musical taste. In Estonia these Basildon guys were real style icons. I guess it could be an interesting idea for some social anthropologists to analyse the phenomenon of DM in Eastern Europe, but the idea of opening a strictly DM music bar sounds natural here. So, if you are over 35 and ready to get hammered with loud chanting “Enjoy the silence” 5 times per night, then this place is for you.
Originally the bar was opened in 1999, and in 2001 the bar had its first night of glory, when right before a concert in Tallinn the Mode band members partied here the whole night long. Since then the bar has moved to another place, but remained a local nest for synth-pop apologists and once in 2012 I even accidentally faced Theo Hutchcraft, the singer of Hurts here.
DM Baar is one of the most well-known and advertised bars in Tallinn and it is easy to find, it is near Town Hall Square on one of the oldest streets of Tallinn called Voorimehe. Also on this street you can check out a retro vinyl second hand and local Estonian design souvenirs shops.
