The places was told to be oldest pub in Tallinn, but so does Hell Hunt also. Don´t know witch one is right..
It is in the cellar, as we thought from the name. Don´t know where the word "karja" comes, when it sounds like cows to Finnish. Place is quite typical pub, quite big witch you didn´t see from the street. There was a band playing, but they played only old songs from 80´s like in boats going between Helsinki and Stockholm (and maybe Tallinn, we have never used night boat), so it was.. hmm.. "not our cup of tea". But better than todays disco-music or some kind of tecno etc.. But these things are hard to tell, some might love the music. Maybe we should, by the gae we are. And I think the music changes here, might be different bands each day. This was at saturday, maybe there isn´t live music every day.
They also had food in here. We didn´t eat anything, but we saw many people eating, and it looked o.k.. Many kinds of snackfoods mostly, but something bigger also. And the prices weren´t high, might try one day.
There was quite a good beer selection and in reasonable prices. Some beers were 3 for price of 2. We only had one each anyway.( We felt like seeing many places same night.)
Dress Code: No dress code.
I think the Estonian for karja kelder means literally: cellar bar. It's a pretty much no-nonsense kind of a place that serves good strong beer and good value food. It's popular with beer fans, as it has an almost complete range of beers from the two main brewers in Estonia: Saku and A. Le Coq, including Saku Tumé on draught.
The music is pretty awful, though, with a constant stream of schlage muzik. But you can watch endless football on the big screen.
Dress Code: Relaxed.
