A great location on a main Street to watch Athens world go by from a seat outside or from the fantastically layer out inside When you go down to the toilets you get a real sense this was a bank once upon a time They have made a full bar and great seating whilst retaining the banks features Very grand...

We went in the "old bank" just for a nightcap. It was the night between 30th of April and 1st of Mai. Never saw so many people in a Finnish bar before. Great party night with a lot of fun. And indeed, ... it's an old bank.

Great innovations of Turku. Huh-huh !! This place is parallel to "Uusi Apteekki", set up in a real environment. Great selection of IPA beers and one local APA which is superb.

I hadn't been here for almost 20 years so it was time to check whether it's still going strong and it sure was. The interior is still impressive and I remember that when it was first turned into a public house back in the early 90's they did they best to preserve the old bank atmosphere. It's a very nice...

We decided to have a last drink before going back to our hotel after a dinner together with collegues. It is not very clean, there was a bad smell at the entrance and the service was not good. I do not recommend coming there again.

Traditional place and very popular. Former bank but it seems that the decor and some of the furniture needs (broken sofas and very 80's exterior, shabby) little bit updating. But they have pretty nice selection of special beers etc. so maybe other things can be forgiven. Small terrace outside.

Given a tour of drinking houses in Turku by my colleague Pekka. This was probably my favourite, the old counters serving as the bars with lots of nooks and crannies to explore and a big range of beers to try

The beer selection was good, we didn't get any food though. The decor inside is very cool, classy and vintage.

Exellent selection of beers, probably best in Turku. But if there is a person not so keen on beers, the selection is fairly narrow. But if you love beer, this is the place to be.
