How to find us

Map: please see the map below.

By walking: mbar is located in the building called Lasipalatsi, between Helsinki Railway Station and Helsinki's bus station; between metro stations Rautatieasema and Kamppi.

From the Kamppi metro station, exit towards downtown and keep to your left as you walk towards the Finnish Contemporary Art Museum Kiasma. mbar is located in the northern corner of the Lasipalatsi building. Our address is Mannerheimintie 22-24, but our door is towards Salomonkatu, a tiny pedestrian street before Mannerheimintie. There is a taxi stop right in front of mbar.

Opposite of the Kiasma contemporary art museum. There is a rider statue in front of Kiasma. If you look the same direction the horse does, you are looking at mbar. By the way, infamously the horse incorrectly walks like a camel.

At the corner of Mannerheimintie and Salomonkatu. Other landmarks include the Paasikivi statue (two obelisks through which you can see the Parliament House), and the Alko liquor store.

mbar's terrace is on the Lasipalatsi square right in front of our south end window. There is a tunnel that goes from Salomonkatu to the courtyard past our aquarium-like windows. The Bio Rex movie theatre is above us.

If you are still lost, don't hesitate to call us at +358-9-612 45 420.
