Helsinki is full of glamorous, impressive and distinctive venues. Some are well-known, but there are lots of gems that the public is not aware of. I want to give you a glance behind the curtains and take you to an exploration into the world of Helsinki’s event venues!
The Theatre Museum
The Theatre Museum is located in Cable Factory in Salmisaari. The mission of the museum is to cherish Finnish dance and theatre heritage. The venue is ample, colourful and mystical—just like a theatre should be.
The Theatre Museum is open for everyone. The speciality is that you can rent the museum for a private event, whether for yourself or for a company. It is possible to celebrate in the magical theatre milieu!
The Theatre Museum, Tallberginkatu 1 G, www.teatterimuseo.fi/en/
Fits 80-130 persons.
The Roof Sauna & Conference
Luxurious, unique, wow. These are the typical first impressions of The Roof sauna venue.
The Roof is located—you guessed it—over the rooftops in the marine Lauttasaari Island. The venue is used solely for private events, so if you want to see the place with your own eyes, you better throw a party there! Past events in the Roof have varied from company meetings to milestone birthdays, and from sauna parties to bachelor parties. You hear people talking about luxury in the ordinary days. The Roof is just that.
The Roof, Vattuniemenkatu 21, www.theroof.fi
Fits 25-30 persons.
Gallery Forum Box
Forum Box is a modern art gallery in a former cold storage room. Forum Box aims to be a space open for all forms of art. In the gallery, you can get outside of your own box and find new, interesting contemporary artists.
The urban surfaces add roughness and the present exhibition puts the finishing touches on the event.
Gallery Forum Box, Ruoholahdenranta 3 A, www.forumbox.fi/en/home/
Fits 80-120 persons.
It seems there is everything in Rupla: excellent art exhibitions, tasty raw cakes, a second-hand store for vintage lovers, and the Helsinki atmosphere. Also, the furniture in Rupla is for sale, so if the armchair feels extra comfy, you can take it with you when you leave.
It’s not a big surprise that you can hold private events in Rupla, too. Whatever you can imagine wanting from an event, Rupla most likely will fulfil it—and more.
Rupla, Helsinginkatu 16, www.rupla.fi
Fits 40-80 persons.
Remember to use your imagination when organizing an event in Helsinki. Because, in Helsinki, there really is a venue for every taste and style.
