Bar Molotow is not your typicial Finnish bar. However it is impossible to overlook it when recommending go-to Helsinki addresses. It is truly the pearl on Vaasankatu, Kallio’s famous bar street.

Created 5 years ago by founder/entreprenor Sami Nurminen, Molotow reflects Sami’s world traveler experience. Upon entering Molotow, you can see different influences from different cities. You have the impression you could be someplace in New York, with it’s distinctive brick wall, but also somewhere in Berlin or Amsterdam, due to its tasteful blend of old and new elements of decoration.

=> Fun fact: the name comes from Sami’s favorite club in Hamburg.

The bar’s speciality is a large variety of beers and ciders. They even have a little separate bar with new and changing products (such as Indian Pale Ale, or our recent taste Buxton Brewery American Pale Ale). 

Molotow has a very cozy bohemian atmosphere: it is a place for everyone, and always opens its doors at 4 pm, everyday of the week. The bar can quickly become full, but in a nice way: because of its international and relaxed feel, the crowd becomes a pleasant murmur. 
There is furthermore a true sense of community and authenticity at Molotow: it’s Helsinki’s most street-savy bar. 

=> Future Plans: Sami Nurimen plans on opening a new bar in Kallio with the same kind of spirit but a bigger variety of products and things to eat as well. Stay tuned for more information!  

=> Take note of Molotow’s 5 year celebration on May Day this year!
