I love bars, cocktails and all kinds of drinks, so finding the best places to enjoy these is a personal goal of mine. All of my friends know that it will probably be me who decides where we drink, because I just happen to know the best bars in Helsinki. There are a lot of great ones to choose from depending on what you like, but I’ll try to make the choice easier for you by telling you about my favourites at the moment. There are many cocktail bars that didn’t make the list, but are still worth a visit – they’re just not the places I happen to visit often. And I have to admit that I still have a lot to see, taste and experience in Helsinki. Without further ado, I give to you my favourite cocktail bars in Helsinki.

When planning our upcoming honeymoon, I wanted to figure out a way to combine city life with some paradise relaxation. Our all time favourite city Tokyo gave us the needed shopping opportunities, neon lights and big crowds, but Okinawa was the right place to sit back and enjoy the sun and the sea. And for such a special occasion the hotel had to be the best of the best, which is the Ritz-Carlton Okinawa, because how else could you make paradise even better? By slapping 5 stars on it!
