If you just want to grab a beer with friends and avoid the tourist scene, Hell Hunt (The Gentle Wolf) is probably your best bet. An open, comfortable drinking establishment with a strong sense of style, it pulls in the locals by the droves with its no-nonsense atmosphere. While here, try the pub's own brand of light, dark, ale and wheat beer (brewed by Viru Õlu) or one of their other 130-140 beers. Decent, cheap food too.
