Why locals love it

Pööbel is a great place for an informal night out with friends. Its name stands for "plebs" – a tongue-in-cheek hint to being just downhill from the parliament. The place is always buzzing with lively groups of locals and their food is this traditional, filling and finger-licking pub food that makes you mumble with happiness.

Why you should visit it

Even though it's located just on the border of Old Town Pööbel won't be on your typical tourist trail, so it's a chance to see a different side of the city. And meet lots of local politicians for that matter. If you'd ask me about a place that serves truly Estonian food, I'd send you here instead of the expensive restaurants in the old town.

Special tip

Fried potato peels! Yum!

A great Friday night spot for us 'common people'. Great tap list and beer selection, and a wide range of hearty beer snacks to share.

Quite interesting place for having beers and snacks, situates next to the Toompea, which is really cool and famous place in Old Town

Awesome atmosphere, yummy & big portions and reasonable prices make it worth climbing over the hill to the other side of the old town. While there, go discover the Hirve Park as well, where our independence meetings started back in the 80s.
