Dance all night.

Entertainment over night

Lively terraces, cozy pubs, stylish bars, karaoke, dance restaurants, nightclubs, entertainment arenas, wine cellars, laughter-filled stand-up comedy, and live music to suit all tastes. Alongside this versatile entertainment, you can enjoy high-quality cocktails, specialty beers and wines, and delicious snacks. Whatever the time of year, Kuopio and Tahko nightlife has plenty to offer. 

In the center of Kuopio and Tahko, it’s easy to jump from one nightclub to another. Almost everything is within walking distance and the nearby entertainment venues can be reached easily by taxi or bus. 

In Kuopio, you’ll find restaurants in Kauppakatu as well as along the harbour in the summer, offering spectacular views. Laze away the warm summer nights by dining in one of the many terrace restaurants located across the region, or in winter, enjoy a more intimate indoors experience. 

If you enjoy live music, you’re in the right place. You can enjoy music at the Wanha Satama located in the passenger harbor in the summer season and throughout the year at Spa Hotel Rauhalahti restaurant. The hotel also offers themed event weekends, and another three dancing restaurants are located just 10 kilometers from the center of Kuopio.

The heart of Tahko’s nightlife is the largest nightclub in Eastern Finland, Restaurant Piazza, which offers entertainment all year round with top performances and party bands. During skiing season, after ski restaurants are the perfect place to celebrate after a day on the slopes. 

We’d also recommend a visit to Leppävirta, where Vesileppis Arena organizes several concerts and events each month. In the summer, the Kuopio area comes alive with festivals and events, meaning your nights are always ones to remember.
