Hemingway’s Rotuaari, Oulu

Located in the heart of Oulu, Hemingway's Rotuaari, with its 184 seats, sits right by the iconic Rotuaari Ball on a bustling pedestrian street. A beloved haven for book lovers, this lively spot invites adults to exchange tales over beer and wine, creating a rich tapestry of shared experiences.

Papa Hemingway would surely have urged any thirsty passerby to stop in—whether to spend a memorable moment among friends, read the day's papers, or dive into one of the more than 2,000 books available for free reading.

Our restaurant is also dog-friendly. Just remember, dogs follow the same rules as customers—no barking at the tables
