People are used to going out to the bar for a drink, but with Pub SparaKOFF, the bar comes to them. That's because the watering hole, an attraction in downtown Helsinki, is on a functional streetcar, giving drinkers a ride through the historic Nordic city while they imbibe.

Pub SparaKOFF is on a bright red tram with a 1950s-inspired design on both the exterior and interior. The outside of the streetcar incorporates authentic 50s tram technology, and the interior features rich wood and leather. The seats are organized to face one another in groups of four, letting drinkers socialize with one another.

The pub-on-wheels seats 35, and it can be rented out for private events. When not rented, it circles through the city and picks up drinkers from Railway Square for 40-minute trips.
