Vinkkeli beckons with an in­dul­gent din­ner. Lo­cated in a his­toric build­ing in the heart of the cen­tral Kaartinkaupunki dis­trict, the restau­rant mar­ries a fine-dining at­mos­phere, high-qual­ity in­gre­di­ents and a sea­sonal ap­proach to cook­ing. As well as the à la carte menu, the chefs pre­pare a spe­cial four-course din­ner ev­ery evening with wine pair­ings cho­sen by the restau­rant’s award-win­ning som­me­lier. Stand­out dishes in­clude duck leg con­fit with mar­i­nated red cab­bage and sea­sonal mush­rooms, and mouth­wa­ter­ing ox carpac­cio.

Af­ter a sat­is­fy­ing repast at Vinkkeli, you’re well placed for a night on the tiles. One of the best spots is Hol­i­day, a short cab ride away on the wa­ter­front in the shadow of or­nate Uspen­ski Cathe­dral. Lo­cals in the know keep this bar jump­ing. Like its name sug­gests, it’s a ca­sual hang­out with an abun­dance of good vibes and drinks to carry you hap­pily through the night.
