If you want to treat yourself to a really good drink, try this small hide-away cocktail bar that is located only a few minutes from the commercial centre in the Design district of the city.
I love the brick walls that give the modern interior a cozy vibe that easily makes you lose track of time. Their selection of very innovative cocktails make the choice really difficult, but the bartenders are always happy to prepare a custom-made drink – and it’s such a pleasure to watch them work their magic!
I always found that Helsinki was missing the cocktail culture a bit – in most European cities every bar sells a basic selection, but here that is mostly limited to the classic long drinks. Although many new places (such as Navy Jerry’s) have appeared lately, Liberty Or Death is definitely my go-to place for a really good cocktail! Prices are quite high but definitely worth it!
They update their menu every few months (can be found on their Facebook page)!
