Spårakoff is a pub tram that runs on streets of Helsinki during summer months. Spåra comes local dialect of Helsinki, meaning tram, and Koff is a Finnish beer brand.
Nice place for a few rounds. The tram dates from 1959 and it was converted to a pub in 1995.
Outside view at the workshop.

Ahh you've found another pub for us to enjoy, have you got a theme going? This is a pub with a difference, combining two of your favourite photographic subjects: public transport and drinking beer (actually they're two of my favourite sports too ;) I like how everyone is packed in together so closely and the name of the pub is an interesting one. I must try and see if they sell Spára here in Australia. Not an easy shot to make, the light being difficult and also many people with their backs to you. But it's successful, well done and fun.

It's an intersting spectacle to see that there is a pub tram on streets, so it's impressive that many passengers are drinking and chatting in tram's pack. They look as enjyoing this atmosphere, the interior of the inside is gorgeous. And, it's interesting there are both of table and standing area. Well captured and excellent tone/clarity.

This is a lovely city daily life scene that makes us want to go and visit Helsinki ! Good capture of the passengers who look natural and oblivious of your camera.
Thanks for sharing.
