Champagne, the drink of choice in this metropolis called Helsinki and you needn’t pay an arm and a leg for it either!
One Tiny Champagne Bar on the ground floor of the Stockmann’s Department Store serves the most delectable, hand-crafted nibbles to go with your glass of Moët et Chandon. As its name suggests, it’s tiny and wraps around the corner with an under-stated, green-tinged interior, every bit as vibrant as the fizz in your glass.
Shampers is tucked into one of the lobbies of Forum Shopping Centre. With its coloured lights and celebratory mood, Mumm provides the bubbles to put a sparkle in your day.
Helsinki’s only 2-star Michelin restaurant Chez Dominique has an impressive champagne bar where it’s possible just to have a glass of the good stuff without indulging in a meal. The choices range from Krug to Jacquesson and while the prices may be a little elevated, the service and natural, calm atmosphere turns every sip into an unforgettable moment.
Wine bar Grotesk has a brand new concept with 60 wines by the glass and some pretty excellent champagne included in that list. Indulge your palate with Champagne Tribault, exclusive to this restaurant, or Veuve Fourny Blanc de Blanc 2002, while you gaze up at the exquisite carved wooden ceiling of this historic building.
