Finnish in style

Fact: There are a lot of bars in Helsinki; 2,193 to be exact, servicing the city's 500.000 residents. And many of these are emerging as hot property in the international cocktail arena, with somewhere to suit everyone. www.worldsbestbars.com recently singled out A21 Cocktail Lounge (www.a21.fi/) as the finest in the world, with a menu sure to appeal to true gourmands. Spanning rare recipes from the 19th century all the way through to their own signature creations, ingredients such as rhubarb, basil and Finnish berries are certain to get your lips smacking.

If you're residing in the Sokos Hotel Torni (www.sokoshotels.fi), venture up to the top floor where you'll find the stylish Atelje Bar. The hotel, built in 1928, has decor heavily informed by Art Noveau fused with 'functionality', and was a popular hangout for reporters and diplomats post-WW2. The bar boasts spectacular city views. To drink? Choose from a large range of vodkas- earn local respect by opting for the country's own Finlandia.

Wanting to team a city break with the luxury of a spa? Hotel Haven (www.hotelhaven.fi) ticks the box- offering 5-starred boutique accommodation. With a convenient location just round the corner from Market Square, you can 'Welcome Summer' in the bar or courtyard with a rhubarb-rich cocktail by that very name. But if you're on a tighter budget, don't despair- head to the Sokos Hotel Aleksanteri where the hotel, adjacent to the Alexander theatre, is offering a full bottle of Champagne served on the terrance for a miniscule 12 euros. The offer runs until the end of August- for all the scoop on Helsinki log on to www.visitfinland.com/uk
