This underground cavern is dark and dingy, just like the pessimistic bartender on duty that night, but it’s a cool place to hang out and drink cheap beer. It was quiet that night and the bartender told us about how people in Estonia generally can’t afford to go out very much. He certainly didn’t seem too impressed with the general economic situation and complained about the neighbours (residents) above the bar who put an end to live bands and DJs playing at the bar. It did seem a shame. Levist Valijas looks like the sort of place where struggling musicians should be discovered.
