This cavernous place, near the train station, is Tampere’s main indoor live-music venue; there are usually several bands playing every week, and big Finnish names regularly swing by for concerts.

The best place to see top-level hockey matches is at this arena, about 4km north of the city centre (take bus 23 or 69, or tram 7A or 7B). It’s the home of local Super League side Jokerit Helsinki.
The opulent blood-red interior and comfortably cosy seating seem too stylish for a rock bar, but this is what this is, with portraits of guitar heroes lining one wall and an eclectic mix of people filling the upstairs, served by two bars. Downstairs is a club area, with live music more nights than not.
For concerts and performances, see Helsinki This Week, inquire at the tourist office, or check the website of ticket outlet Lippupiste. Tickets are available through Lippupiste or at the box office at Stockmann department store.
