The DM Bar Tallinn
Member Name: bluestreety
Advantages: Handy for the old town, great ambiance.
Disadvantages: Nothing but Depeche Mode.
I went to Tallinn as part of a group of 7 middle aged blokes, who were intent, as we usually are when we have a 'lad's weekend' away, on having a good few beer's and to also take in some of the local scenery and food.
As I say, we are middle aged, varying from mid forties to me, I'm 57. Some of the guy's were pretty much into Depeche Mode during their heyday and so when we found out that Tallinn had it's very own Depeche Mode Bar, it was met with a considerable amount of glee!
The hotel we had booked was The Go Hotel Shnelli, which is situated at the railway station and the nearest bar to it, is? You've guessed it, The DM Bar.
We usually make one bar our 'base', where we start and finish our day's/evening's drinking and the DM Bar was the obvious choice.
Finding it is simple, on a Street named Nunne, near to The St Olaf Hotel.
Finding your way down the few steps and into the bar area you will find plenty of memorabilia around the place, as you would expect, but what I didn't really expect was every single song played was Depeche Mode. I know it's the Depeche Mode Bar, but, every single song?? Anyway, some of the lad's were in their element and on the night we spent over 3 hours in there, we must have heard a hell of a lot of the total back catalogue.
The beer choice is good, with both dark and light European style beer and the general ambiance of the place is good, with a good mix of clientele, in every sense, whether it be in their dress style or Nationality.
All in all, a great place to visit even if you are not a fan, an amazing place if you are and you might just be lucky enough to be there when the band themselves drop by.
Summary: Recommend a visit to The DM Bar for anyone going to Tallinn, even if it's just for one or two beer's
