KAIKU, Helsinki

#50 of 51 in Nightlife in Helsinki
Performance · Concert / Show
Opened in 2013, Kaiku has steadily kept itself in the heart of Helsinki nightlife. Located in an old factory building between the live venue/club Kuudes Linja and Bar Siltanen, Kaiku offers a selection of best international and local guests every week. A great sound system has also always been a part of Kaiku's reputation. Reappearing guest DJ's include Tama Sumo, I-F, Helena Hauff, Horse Meat Disco, Prosumer, Fred P, Hunee, Dixon, Kim Ann Foxman and The Black Madonna among many others.



In 2014, The Guardian asked top DJ's to list their favourite European clubs. Kaiku was chosen as one of the 25 venues by Amsterdam-based Young Marco – "If I designed a club it would look like this one. A big wooden box, a great sound system, a Rotary mixer in the booth and working turntables (which is not a given these days, unfortunately). Combine that with a very open-minded crowd and great programming and you have Kaiku. The people behind this place are in it for all the right reasons and pure love of music – and you will notice it when you’re there. "



Illustrations and posters for Kaiku by Linda Linko won the European Design Awards in 2014.

Recently Kaiku was featured in Resident Advisor’s RA In Residence series and hosted an all-night Boiler Room broadcast.

Kaiku is programmed by promoter and resident Lauri Soini.

  • This place is certainly not everyone’s cup of tea - but if you love techno and dark room myserious room kind of vibes deffo the place to go. Big big plus for lovely terrase. Had a great time!  more »
  • 12eur entry and 3.50 door fee... plus you can’t wear a jacket Inside and it’s 2eur if you left something in your coat: save your time and your money and avoid what is certainly one of the worst clubs....  more »

  • Best underground night club in North Europe, Hands down!
  • Good place to throw a party in Helsinki. Wasn't even too crowded during my visit (Friday). A couple of rooms with different kinds of music, people are looking to turn off the their brains after a week work, women are pretty, guys not so confident and staff is nice. Prices relevant to the overall image of the club and Helsinki.
