Overview Gay Club Scene In Helsinki

The Gay and Lesbian scene in Helsinki isn’t huge but like many other Scandinavian cities people have an open minded attitude towards homosexuality. There are just over half a million people living in the Finnish capital but Their queer nightlife exudes chic and hedonism in abundance. Unfortunately Helsinki’s clubbing does not go on until breakfast time as they legally are required to stop serving alcohol around 3 am. The two leading queer nightclubs are probably Hercules and DTM [Don't Tell Your Mother] whilst many other options are chilled out or cruising bars. The majority of their Gay/Lesbian clubbers are high spirited and effusive individuals
