A New Bar in Helsinki Channels a Retro Soundtrack and a Midcentury Milanese Hotel Lounge

By Jennifer Baum Lagdameo / Published by Dwell
A new atmospheric bar and lounge opens up in a hip Helsinki neighborhood, channeling a retro-chic hotel lounge and inspired by a groovy soundtrack filled with tunes from the '60s and '70s.
Named after Scott Walker's 1968 hit song "Jackie" (a cover of Jacques Brel's French hit "La Chanson de Jacky"), Jackie Bar is a cocktail lounge that recently opened in Iso Roobertinkatu, Helsinki's design district.
