Hilpea Hauki is located on Vaasankatu next to the Sornainen metro station - traditionally a notorious neighborhood. However, we encountered really friendly and professional service, good selection of beers and an enjoyable crowd. Not a single person being too drunk or causing any kind of problems even though it was a Friday night!

Friendly knowledgeable staff, and tremendous selection of beers. Lovely cosy environment too, where you could while away an afternoon or evening, and taste some great flavours. Well worth a look!

You can get fairly good pizza here, but mostly Bud's is a bar. There are five booths and five tables - expect to meet lots of locals in the evening. The noise levels go up as the night grows long. Cheap beer, Finnish magazines, three TVs and a chance to smoke indoors!

I have to admit, they have a good selection of beers. Pub itself is nothing fancy and of course the neighbourhood is something else. If you dare to come here via nearby metro station, you have seen the other Helsinki ;)

Happy Pike is part chain of pubs named after Fishes. It is located close to Sörnäinen subway station, area which is not nice. Pub has huge selection of beers from different parts of the world. Staff is excellent, knowing their drinks and can recommend one for you. I highly recommend to take Fish pub tour, to visit all of them,... More

Went there for the beer, got the beer. They have a great selection of beer, but comparing to other beer houses I've been to Hilpeä Hauki is a bit more expensive. Great service though and the place is very comfy. After work? Oh yes.

For several years, Hilpeä Hauki was my local. I can't praise it enough for friendly service and atmosphere, excellent choice of beers and the wide range of board games available for customers to borrow. If my memory isn't playing tricks on me, some of the games are even in English.

This place has a great beer selection and cozy atmosphere. We didn't get any food, but the Finnish beer selection was pretty big, lots of new things to try.

In a neighborhood full of places that sell the basic stuff on tab this is a safe haven. Really good selection of imported beers and kind service

Good selection of beers. Both Finnish and imported. Also seasonal products, sahti, sima etc. Relaxed and cozy and also tidy. Not so cheap, but at this area it is just a good thing :-) Can honestly recommend this place.
