Oranssi - Helsinki, Finland

Neighborhood: Center (Katajanokka)

Oranssi is an organization that renovates abandoned and badly damaged buildings into apartments for the young. Additionally, it runs an irregular club at its HQ in Katajanokka. This is a place to hear bands that rarely have gigs elsewhere: the truly alternative ones and the beginners. Usually it is pop, punk or hardcore, but there are exceptions. Sometimes there are foreign guests, usually small, unknown bands with a small but devoted cult following. The club is open on weekends, but if there are other long-running projects-like a play-the club is cancelled. There is no minimum age limit so no alcoholic beverages are for sale, but you can get coffee, tea or soft drinks. The clubs gather a good amount of people, but you can always get in. The easiest way to reach Oranssi is by tram 4.
