Great place with friendly staff and free wifi. Great selction of beer and single malts. Had the white IPA which was pretty strong but good. Can definitely recommend this place both for a quick beer or to hang out for a longer period of time...

Great beer selection. The bartender was helpful with her explanations. We were there in the afternoon, but looked like it would be a hot spot for an evening drink!

Large, nice stone-and-wood place with a great choice of both draught and bottled beers. The draught beer selection includes mostly local microbreweries, even limited series (or experiments :-) that can be found only once. Lots of liquors too. There is a limited selection of snack food, that unfortunately I could not taste because apparently the kitchen closes way before the... More

We're interested in handcrafted beers and this place hut the spot. The place is huge and have generous opening hours compared to other pubs and bars in Helsinki. The staff was friendly and knew their beers and ciders.

Villi Wäinö is located close to Esplanadi and other attractions. I usually go there for a beer or wine. Wine and Sparkling wine bottles are in very reasonable price.

Visited with colleagues after team building day. Quite typical pub in Helsinki centre with small brewery drinks. Location is great. Good for larger groups since wooden tables are long.

Get yourself in Villi Wäinö on Friday evening after work. Choose a good beer from a tab or bottle, take a sit and relax. You'll meet lot of young people having after work drinks. When day turns to evening, bar starts play music, sometimes live.

A long, free weekend in Helsinki during the Easter Holidays. This means time and money to spend. Had visited this locale before and had nothing to complain: central location, good beers and better friends. This time stepped in an empty bar on Sunday afternoon in hope for some nice IPA. There was a funky stench in the bar, but still... More
