Lots of entertainments at walking distance!

Mariehamn is a compact town and entertainment is always near. There are several places to choose between and they are so close that you easily can try several in one night.

Where do you feel at home in Mariehamn’s night life? You can get many answers to that question depending on who you ask. One thing is certain; there is a wide and varied supply considering the size of the town.

Three in the bar and restaurant quarter
An obvious entertainment centre in Mariehamn is near Nygatan. There is almost an entire bar and restaurant quarter with Indigo Restaurang & Bar, Dinos Bar & Grill and Hotell Arkipelag’s restaurant and night club.

Indigo and Dinos are situated right next to each other and share a large and sheltered courtyard where both have patios.

Dinos is a local restaurant with affordable prices and a rock bar with live music, open until 04 o'clock. On the terrace, you can also listen to the Dinos troubadour who entertains every night between 21 and 24 in summertime.

Indigo restaurant offers food of high class in its restaurant and modern design is combined with the special atmosphere of an old stone house. Many go upstairs – either to begin the evening or to stay until the early morning hours. Here under the slanted ceiling is one of Mariehamn’s most popular bar places with a DJ on Fridays and Saturdays.  There is also a restaurant in the hotel, with dance music for a mature audience and a lobby bar.

On the same street
If you go outside the “restaurant quarter” you will for example find Parks Bar which is a well-known music pub with live music four nights a week – from Wednesday to Saturday. Sometimes there is a troubadour performing, sometimes an orchestra and the emphasis is on rock and blues.

On the same street, Norra Esplanadgatan, is Umbra Krog & Bar. There Italian food with an Åland touch is served in a finely decorated restaurant and here you can have a quiet drink in a smaller bar while you consider the rest of the evening.

A stone’s throw from Umbra is Mariehamn’s market square and there is also a fully licensed restaurant named Eat, which serves a la carte meals in the evenings.

The sea restaurants
Mariehamn is a sea town with two excellent harbours – one in the east and one in the west. In the harbours there are nice summer restaurants with a sea view and boating life.

At the water’s edge in Östra Hamnen, below the hotel Arkipelag, is Club Marin, a summer restaurant where summer dances on the jetty are arranged. Nearby is the restaurant boat FP von Knorring which also has a serving area on the pier and a bar deck.

In the Västra Hamnen with a view over the museum ship Pommern is Pub Niska which has specialized in “plåtbröd” – pizza in the local dialect – and the Åland sailing association’s restaurant that also features a large outdoor serving area facing the evening sun. Above the museum ship is the well known restaurant Nautical; this is where you go when you want to eat well in a quiet and relaxed environment.

In other words there are lots of restaurants to choose from in Mariehamn; so do as many have done – stroll from place to place and try several in one night!
