Restaurant can be used as an auxiliary space during larger events: there is direct access to the Aalto lobby from the café. It is suitable for example, for catering or press conferences, or as a rest area for organisers and performers. Restaurant is available for hire for private functions, such as parties.  The Helsinki House of Culture, is fully licensed to serve alcoholic beverages.

The House of Culture, which has recently been restored in the spirit of Aalto’s original design, is suitable for catering for all kinds of events. The function spaces at the House of Culture are perfect for events ranging from meeting lunches to cocktail parties, gala nights, festive buffets, and concerts.

During public events, refreshments are usually sold in the House of Culture’s main lobby, the Aalto lobby, and the adjacent foyer. At festive events, the guests are greeted with welcome drinks on arrival, and a sumptuous buffet is served in the Aalto lobby. For daytime meetings, efficient lunch buffets and coffee points are provided instead.

The level floor of Aalto Hall can be furnished with round or long tables for use for galas. The hall can be equipped with a bar, and light refreshments can be served there also.
