Why locals love it

We are forced to believe that this local pub pre-dates even the medieval city walls and that its core clientele roamed the earth alongside the dinosaurs. A lot of the people you'll meet here have been coming to Valli Baar for ages and quite frankly seem to have become one with their chairs. This makes finding a seat in this place less than easy.

Why you should visit it

Unless your name is Paddy, you might be looking for a more genuine experience than your average Irish pub. Valli Baar, with its seemingly spontaneous live music is a bit of a paradox on the Tallinn party scene. All this makes for a truly authentic setting, but we can't blame you if you find the whole experience a bit odd...

Special tip

If you have the guts (and the liver) try the famous house shot Millimallikas!

The most authentic old school bar in Old Town. Their speciality is a cocktail called "Millimallikas", but be sure to organise your getting home before ordering it.

Very nice drinks, unfortunately the owner is a bit of a racist guy, so it's good to go with a local Estonian if you're not Caucasian...

I always buy the Millimallikas shot for my best couchcurfing and other foreign friends visiting me. Most of them are not my friends anymore after that :D but they calm down after a minute or two. Try it!
