Allas Cafe

The Allas Cafe offers breakfast, lunch, warm dishes, and, of course, high-class cafeteria products. We offer healthy and fresh food to the health oriented and also care for those with a special diet. The Allas Cafe products are made on spot from fresh raw materials: The assortment is prepared on the same day from raw materials from the nearby marketplace and the fish in the salmon soup is from responsible catches. The cafe wants to act as a good neighbour and be a meeting place for all the citizens – whether you want to enjoy a glass of wine or a cup or warm coffee.

Neighbour Bistro

The Neighbour Bistro’s kitchen utilises the season’s best raw materials, which are acquired from as close as possible. The menu includes Helsinki classics from during the last century, made fresh with a modern touch. Everything is close to our dear Baltic Sea and the restaurant follows the principles of sustainable development. We want also future generations to be able to enjoy the coasts and products of the Baltic Sea.

The Neighbour Bistro offers classic treats with modern spices in the form of portions to be divided between your company. Also the best parts of the Helsinki drink culture are served, ranging from the products of small breweries to the treats of the local distilleries.

GET-TOGETHER RECEPTION AT THE FAMOUS CORONA BAR

We will have our cozy get together event at one of our favourite bars in Helsinki.
Corona bar & billiard will host our bohemian conference club throughout from Monday night to Wednesday night. This is the place where we suggest you will head after the days work, for socializing and enjoying inspiring after-talks with drinks.

On Monday, after the Finnish Film screening at the Orion, we will gather together in the Corona Bar's downstairs lounge Dubrovnik. On the stage we will have our special guests and Q&A.
The film talk will lead later to some musical surprises, to be announced later.

Corona bar has achieved almost a cult status only in a few decades. Corona bar, founded by Kaurismäki brothers, is a New York-style relaxed streetbar with a pool-hall. Corona serves coffee, refreshments and probably the best toasts in Helsinki, every day of the week and all around the year.
