Monsters of Pop

Regina was there last year, beautiful beautiful beautiful.
Beautiful girls and fashionable boys are all going to be in one place (actually in three different venues) again this year when Monsters of Pop indiepoprock festival hits the city. There are few bands playing here all the way from Malaysia and Indonesia, wow! Check out the schedule and venues on their website.

If you are coming from outside Tampere to see your favourite bands, or too lazy to go home after a good night out, we are only 2mins walk away from Klubi and Telakka! Type in code "mop2012" at our website to get a 10% discount off all rooms. There are also great deals for rest of the month! 
"And I just cleaned up here..."
Be aware that DH staff are going to be in Telakka on the first night after washing away busy summer season at Kasari sauna. You too will have a chance to wash your worries and "travel sweat" away soon (shh... it's still a secret...)!

Local delicatessens: Armas Maitokauppa

Small delicatessens are coming back to the Finnish street scene. Last year we got two new ones in Tampere selling only locally produced and fresh baked goods. Where else would you find ice cream that tastes like the real thing or have a hot chiabatta made from the best ingredients? Even better, get your cereal milk straight from the cow... Almost!
Fresh and homemade!
Armas Maitokauppa (milk shop) is located right in the city centre of Tampere and has been operating for just over a year. It's a cosy little shop n' cafe with friendly staff. Lots of fresh veggies, eggs, bread, and their own dairy products, cheese, yoghurt, raw milk; you name it! You must try their ice cream, it's seriously one of the best I have ever had (and I have had many!).
My main course and dessert.
Delicious Armas dairy products can also be purchased at supermarkets and Tampere Market Hall.
