Kuikka is a cosily decorated beer shrine on Helsinginkatu near Linnanmäki. The broad, far-reaching beer selection is universal, but the emphasis is on Belgian specialities. Behind the stone bar counter and beautiful swan-necked taps, radiating the Middle Ages, is also an all-embracing selection of ciders and other drinks.

Kuikka's speciality is atmosphere: when you step in the door it feels as though time stands still and all the hustle and bustle is forgotten.
