Perhaps the best views in town. You can see for miles across the city, harbour and Gulf of Finland with ferries going back and forth to Tallinn and Stockholm. There are tables on the outside terracce, too. The bar can get very crowded and is accessible only by very steep stairs after the lift. On the lift level at 12th... More

The Ateljee Bar, located at the top of the Hotel Sokos Torni, has outside viewing decks with wonderful views of the city. It's a great place to see the night lights. The bar itself is quite small. Bar service was good. Wine was pricey - but it's all about the experience!

One of the best places to see views over the Helsinki. Drinks little bit pricey but service is good. Sometimes can be too crowded. Best time to visit is definitely summer nights.

This hotel bar 20+stories in the air offers fantastic 360 degree views of this wonderful city. Drink are expensive but you are paying for the views. A must if you are visiting the city. The bar staff are polite and attentive. The outside viewing platforms either side of the small bar have blankets and chairs to sit and take in... More

Nice view above the city. Perfect to see the sunset on a sunny day. The prices are a bit expensive (5€ for a tea or coffee) but you don't need to order to go to the terrace and enjoy the view. The entrance to the bar is through the Sokos Hotel, the elevator goes to the 12 floor and then... More

This is a small cocktail bar up in the tour of the Sokos hotel tower! The terrace provides a great view over the city. The cocktails are okay, but not too impressive. The barkeepers are nice and they do also drinks which are not on the menu. The "ginger martini" is the best we had!

As a bar at the top of one of Helsinki's tallest buildings (or maybe the tallest one?), this place gets a lot of hype. I agree that the views are nice, but the overall experience doesn't quite live up. I didn't see any table service. Customers wait on line at the bar itself to order drinks. The wait was a... More
