Drinking in Helsinki is about as autonomic an activity as breathing for city residents. Wednesday is a popular night for going out, while on Friday and Saturday it’s best to arrive as early as possible to get a seat. Several venues put on a steady diet of live music and there are occasional free gigs on summer Sundays in Kaivopuisto Park, south of the centre. There’s also a wide range of clubs and discos, which charge a small admission fee (€5–8). For details of what’s on, read the back page of the culture section of Helsingin Sanomat, or the free fortnightly English-language paper City, found in record shops, bookshops, department stores and tourist offices.
