The American Bar has sometimes been called the university of bar tenders, and it has become known for its art, which most bars would call drinks. The staff at the American Bar consists of internationally renowned top professionals who conjure up versatile and innovative cocktails to match your tastes and expectations perfectly.

The American Bar seamlessly combines tradition and today in an international atmosphere.

It provides impeccable service and an excellent choice of unforgettable cocktails, champagnes and wines.

In 2008, the American Bar was ranked second in the Best Bars 2008 survey by the Viisi tähteä (Five stars) trade magazine. The previous year it ranked third.

The American Bar’s fantastic new Join the Club jazz club is packed with ambiance. Jazz singer Ira Kaspi and guitarist Peter Engberg perform together with other well-known musicians each month. Maija Vilkkumaa and other popular Finnish artists also perform new versions of their hits together with jazz classics.

The idea of the club is to invite artists who are not profiled as jazz musicians as guest performers. Many of Finland’s highly ranked professional artists have welcomed the invitation with enthusiasm.
