A well es­tab­lished tra­di­tion of haute cui­sine, one that comes with in­te­ri­ors de­signed by the great Finnish ar­chi­tect Al­var Aalto, is the Savoy, a culi­nary land­mark and the flag­ship of Finnish gas­tron­omy for 75 years. Set on the sev­enth and eighth floors with im­pres­sive views across Es­planadi and the city’s rooftops, it has a roof gar­den fea­tur­ing herbs and a bee­hive. The à la carte menu is com­ple­mented by ex­cel­lent sea­sonal tast­ing menus with wine pair­ings.

Round off the night with a drink or three from the in­no­va­tive cock­tail list at Lib­erty or Death, a cosy, wel­com­ing bar a short walk from the Savoy. Try La Man­cha Ne­gra, a sat­is­fy­ing con­coc­tion of grappa, ap­erol, cy­nar, bit­ters and ab­sinthe that will help you ap­pre­ci­ate walls adorned with vin­tage para­pher­na­lia and paint­ings by a lo­cal tat­too artist.
