When traveling, Markus and I try to find interesting and unique bars. We were both researching spots on our own and we both stumbled upon Steam Hellsinki. The bar was in a bit of an odd location, near the central train station and inside of an outdoor mall. Inside the bar is another story and nothing like the surrounding shops. Somehow they managed to fit a dirigible inside and that also functions as the main bar. It was pretty amazing. Especially when the bar started spraying fog. It really set the mood. Steam Hellsinki focused heavily on gin and had bottles from all over the world. To add to the ambiance, they had the place decked out with old antiques and other steampunk accents. The interior looked like a Hendrick’s Gin advert come to life. The drinks were great and the atmosphere was even better. Unfortunately, since this past August, the bar has permanently closed, which makes our experience even more special.
