Storyville, a cozy jazz club is located in the heart of Helsinki. I don't know about its jazz lounge aspect too much, as I was there for a work related dinner. I, along with a few of my colleagues ordered the chicken mozzarella salad; an easy, safe choice and one the restaurant advertises as being a Storyville classic. One would... More

Stopping in for some jazz as the sunsets on a summer afternoon - there are few places in the world that are better than Storyville. @ least in Scandinavia. The outdoor seating with the wine flowing and some decent bar food if you are hungry, I know I would frequent this spot if I were a local. The staff is... More

Storywille is finnish jazzclub legend. Most famous old jazzstars of finland plays in this restaurant. Especially if you like old jazz, this is yours place. Its also possible to eat quite good and listen jazz at same time there. Winelist its so special but its quite ok anyway.

We were a group of twelve and we entered around 11.50 pm. The entrance fee is €11 and the guy at the reception did not warn us about when the live music would end. So only after five minutes upon our entrance the live music ended and we were left with the DJ music which definitely was not jazz. If... More

Most of our first night in Helsinki was spent at Storyville and none of us left disappointed. The beer (Karhu) was good, the live jazz (Micke & Leftie feat. Chef) was even better and everyone there was very chatty and friendly. It was a little quiet when we first got there (then again it was a Thursday), but it did... More

Apathethic Gin and tonic, from Schweppes and Hendricks, 16,10€. Even in Finland this is super expensive. No reason to visit this place again.

Storyville is one of the few night restaurants in Helsinki where adults (read: "older generation") can enter without looking foolish and out of place. Helsinki does not have nightclubs for adults, they are all intended for the 20-somethings. Storyville is often frequented by politicians (it is next door to the Parliament) and other faces you may recognize from the newspapers.... More

Supposed to be a good place for drinks and music. Drank at the outdoors section and was not happy with the attitude of the staff when I asked the price of the different drinks before buying. Had one drink and headed off to the much more relaxed Pub 99.

The summer terrace of Storyville offers good music and is a fairly good place to spend an evening with friends. The selection of drinks is rather limited, but suits the outdoor setting. The food from their charcoal grill, while sounding tempting, is best to be left alone.

I convinced 1 guy to stay for the live jazz show. Very good band on a Thursday night and only 13 euros cover. We stayed for 1 set as the next day was a working day. There is also a small Cajun style restaurant available before the show starts around 10pm.

Thank HoltED
