Pop Music Nostalgia in Tallinn’s DM Baar, Estonia

I love music. All sorts of music. So a bar dedicated to a single band was something I had to see.

Not that I had much choice, since the band in question is Rich’s favourite: Depeche Mode.

img_7699The original DM Baar in Tallinn, Estonia, was opened 1999 by a fan. In 2009, it moved to its current location in a cellar within the heart of the historic medieval old town and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Every last inch of the place is devoted to Depeche Mode nostalgia, and full of the sound of DM music, of course.
