The Helsinki is a great little alternative bar and club located next to Hardbrücke train station in Zurich West. Situated in a former garage, lots of Swiss and sometimes foreign bands hit the stage, often singer-songwriters. Check out the programme on the website - or just go there and give it a try. The admission fee is usually low and if no one is playing live, there is a notable jukebox and a well equipped bar in a minimalistic and trashy atmosphere. Outdoor area with food.
