Liquor Laws -- The legal age for drinking beer and hard liquor throughout Finland is 18. Many nightclubs and dance clubs, however, admit only "well-dressed" (and nonrowdy) patrons, and sometimes insist that they appear to be 24 or older. Age limits (or even the appearance of age limits), however, usually don't apply to pubs. Laws against drunken driving are rigidly enforced in Helsinki. The City of Helsinki offers a variety of bars, pubs, clubs, nightclubs, cafes and restaurants making it easy to locate a venue which best suites your taste in foods, day or nightlife entertainment form and budget.  Most restaurants and indoor bars are smoke free.  Below is only a brief selection.  Many more can be found by searching the Internet – or by asking a Finnish friend!
