Ravintola Ilves has been associated with the rock concert venue next door, Tavastia, for a long time, although they are in fact independent of each other. Nonetheless, Ilves is one of the favorite hangouts of many famous Finnish rock stars and their admirers. The best time to visit Ilves is directly before a concert at Tavastia, because the audience generally hangs out here, having a few beers before the concert begins. Although it is traditionally a rock place, all kinds of people come here, as it is such a relaxed place with easy-going staff and clientele.
