In Helsinki, you have the Vanha Café that is linked with the student union of the university. The ESN student meet there every tuesday night. Then you have the irish pub Molly Malone near from the railway station, great live music! you have too the restaurant-bar and disco Copacabana for those who like latin music. By the sea as well you have a nice café called Ursula, in the Kaivo puisto. there are some events like Sankta Lucia parade the 13th of december, during christmas the lights of Aleksanterikatu. An important event for students is the Vappu on the 1st of may, after having party the students go for a picnic in the Kaivopuisto. For the discos I like Kaarle12 and Ostrobothnia. There are museums and Ateneum(art modern) and Kiasma are worth to be seen.

Barikarpenan is a student oriented club which all students drop in on Thursday and get socialized in. It was my favourate too. Student Union was a good mediator between social life and university life. Unicafe presents great facilities for infotainment. Hyvee Vappu is a cool celebration of 1 th May and should not be missed. It is held in a park where people and students enjoy the taste of freedom and get rid of the feeling of boredom.

In my point of view the best place for foreigners is Molly Malone - an Irish pub close to the central railway station, a place where lots of foreigners are gathering especially on Thursday and Saturday nights. Good international live music. The personal quote of the pub is "In Molly Malone there are no strangers. Just friends you haven't met yet".

You can always find friendly faces at the Irish pubs (ex: Molly Malone's) in Helsinki - if you are finding the Finns a bit unfriendly during the day time, just wait until they get a few drink in them! And if you are there on May Day, be sure to grab a bottle of champagne and head on down to Kaivopuisto!
