What are some typical ways to socialize, either with local people or with other expatriates? Are there groups or clubs that you can recommend?

There are several expatriate groups that connect through Facebook, such as "Foreigners living in Tallinn," and they have occasional meetings. Tallinn has a great night and cultural life, so it is not hard to meet either expatriates or locals. - Jun 16, 2017
Dinner parties, hiking excursions. - Sep 7, 2016
Lots of possibilities. - Jan 28, 2013
Restaurants mostly. There is some entertaining at home, but mostly with other embassy families. - Oct 28, 2012
Lots to do culturally! - Oct 6, 2012
There is a good cultural scene here. Occasionally you'll get a big name artist come to town (Madonna, Sting). There are good US style movie theaters, with movies in English. Bars and clubs for every taste. Places for kids--indoor play, birthday party friendly. There's a nice zoo, although the hyena makes me sad. At some point before we leave we'll have to take the ferry over to Helsinki, or the overnight to Stockholm. - Sep 8, 2010
Lots of options. Great restaurants, cinema, classical music, concerts. - Aug 9, 2009
