The wonderful premises of Paasiravintola (Restaurant Paasi), carefully restored to the original 1920s style and stylishly renewed for the 2020s, make for an atmospheric backdrop for your events and celebrations. Visit the marvellous hall of Paasiravintola for high-quality conference catering, business lunch or dinner. The restaurant is also suitable for cocktail events and fun theme parties.
Paasiravintola seats nearly 300 guests. A space divider curtain installed between two pillars allows for the hall to be used for more intimate gatherings when needed. The two private dining rooms, Salikabinetti and Lasikabinetti, complement the main restaurant.
Did you know that…? Paasiravintola and the adjacent Lasikabinetti and Salikabinetti private dining rooms were given a complete makeover in the beginning of 2020 bringing functionality of the spaces into the new 20s and to meet contemporary needs. The goals of the makeover were versatility, comfort and ambiance.
Special attention was given to flexibility and clarification of customer service paths. All special dietary requirements are catered for from a single easily identified service station. The logistically optimised space supports Paasitorni’s identity and concept for working luncheons as well as special occasions.
The grand hall and the private dining rooms were updated with new, modern lighting and technology, furnishings and surface materials. Paasiravintola´s existing light colour scheme, which dates from the 1990s, was kept throughout. The blue-grey colour and brass details of the relief above the entrance was used as the main inspiration for new built-in furniture. The grand hall’s floor was restored to mimic the look of the original 1920s appearance.
First opened in 1925, the refurbishment of Paasiravintola and the private dining rooms is part of an extensive service design project which has seen the revitalisation of the lobbies, conference facilities and banqueting rooms of a building that lives and breathes tradition. We trusted the design team of KOKO3 with the task of introducing a modern, light-handed elegance to the magnificent and prestigious building and its commanding architectural features designed by Karl Lindahl in the spirit of the architectural ideals of his time. The original architecture and its evocative fairytale character has been preserved and highlighted, while creating inviting, playful and functional spaces.
