Tallinn and Tartu have the greatest selection of bars and pubs, while visitors are sure to find cosy wine bars and traditional pubs as they travel through smaller towns. Most Estonian bars and pubs also serve lunch and dinner until late hours and have a good selection of local beers on the tap.
Bars tend to be more common in Estonian cities, while pubs are more prevalent in smaller towns and villages. Tallinn bars range from trendy cocktail lounges to hipster hangouts with late night venues doubling up as gastropubs, an affordable and popular dining option among the locals. Tartu bars tend to have a more of a scholarly vibe due to the large student population, offering a decent selection of beers and cocktails in a creative and youthful atmosphere.
The Estonian craft beer scene is all about mixing traditional flavours with modern techniques to produce small batches of unique beer.
