Jussi69 Opens "The Riff" Bar In Helsinki

Known as the drummer of Gothic rock band The 69 Eyes, Jussi69 has also made a name for himself as a radio host, and now his latest venture is opening a bar.

The Riff will be opened in central Helsinki at Iso Roba 3 right before Ascension Day on Wednesday, May 13th. The bar is designed to function as a fresh and comfortable living room for the rock-loving population. Music and sound system selections have been done with particular care.

Jussi69’s partners are Veikka Moilanen and Oskari Kovalainen, two familiar faces from the Helsinki bar scene. Jussi69 comments:

"I have toured excessively at rock clubs from Osaka to Texas and back. I feel I understand what makes a bar work and where I enjoy myself. Owning a bar has been my longtime dream, and I have been planning this for quite some time with my colleagues. Now we have found the perfect location in the heart of Helsinki. 'The Riff' is cool without being snobbish. It is the perfect place for chilling at a stylish patio or partying till the break of dawn - I would like to do both! At 'The Riff' you hear the best playlists in the city and the drinks menu contains only top-notch picks."

An opening party will be held on May 13th from 18.00 till 20.00. Doors open to the public at 20.00. After the opening party the bar will be open every day from noon till 3.00 in the morning.

The 69 Eyes also recently released "The Best Of Helsinki Vampires," a full best-of collection, spanning a quarter of a century of band history and featuring 28 tracks in total.
