Shot bars have nearly disappeared where I live.
But they live on in Helsinki. And we had a hilarious Sunday night experience here during Midsummer. We had the place mostly to ourselves, which was good because they only have one little area suitable for people with short legs - all of the rest of the seating is impossibly high.
The bartender was a load of laughs and was ready to tell us what to drink, what would knock us out and what would taste better. We ended up having three shots, with a suitable water chaser. We nursed the shots, unlike the three other people who came in, span the wheel of fortune, and had their shots poured and drank within ten minutes!
Music might be a little loud, but the decor is great and the list of shots covers an entire wall!
It was around the corner from our hotel. I could see going there every night under different circumstances.
