Helsinki Ice Hall is an indoor arena located in Helsinki, Finland. It is capable of holding 8,200 people.
It is the home arena for HIFK of the SM-liiga. It is sometimes called "Nordis" or "Petoluola", Finnish for "The beast cave", referring to the 2nd logo of HIFK: a red panther. Helsinki Ice Hall used to be the main arena for all important ice sports events, as well as indoor arena concerts, but after the construction of HK Areena and Hartwall Areena, many events take place in the newer arenas.
Nevertheless the Helsinki Ice Hall still remains an active arena for concerts, conferences, expos and sports events. During the 2016 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships, games were played there.

  • Pretty great venue for concerts, but some performers have trouble setting up their PA for this place, resulting in incredibly loud and ear-destroying musical experiences. Surprisingly, there is an ample amount of toilets even when the hall is packed full. Beer and drinks are ridiculously overpriced.
  • Good place for ice hockey and gigs. Slightly old but functional, brutalism comes to mind
