Roskapankki is known for its cheap beer and unique Kallio atmosphere - something not all visitors necessarily appreciate. You will encounter people from all walks of life.

Beer is cheap, there's lots of it as well as people. There may not always be room to sit but that's ok. In the summer the terrace is great - the sun shines all day! Really popular and legendary place.

A legendary bar, an authentic "Kallio bar" which means it's definitely not nice and clean but totally worth to visit - for someone. If you prefer chic and posh, this isn´t your place. For serious party animals who want to see rough side of Helsinki. Anyhow it's quite safe place, you hardly find dangerous bars / pubs in Helsinki, our... More

Beers are really cheap (the number III is 2.80, the Karhu "A" grade is EUR 3). They serve a wide range of really excellent pizzas (baked in a real charcoal oven) all at EUR 5.50.

This classic pub has been standing in middle of Kallio for decades and there is a reason for that: very colourful people and bohemian athmosphere combined with cheap beer. I´ve never had the encourage to order anything to eat because the place looks... well how should I say.... dirty.

Beer 2,80 eur. Among the cheapest pubs in Helsinki. Interesting people. I didn't try the food, but I guess it's not exactly gourmet. Nuff said.
