Often in Finnish celebration culture, party venues where you can bring your own drinks and catering generate more interest than full-service events. That's why, in collaboration with Happens.fi, we have selected three party venues in Espoo where you can bring your own beverages and prepare a menu full of your own specialties! Discover the perfect venue and celebrate weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, confirmation parties, or any other festive occasions with family, friends, and relatives.
The best part about Espoo is the abundance of villas in natural surroundings. In addition to these, we also recommend one party venue that is considered more modern and industrial. So, whether you're planning a party with a large or small number of guests, take note of these venue recommendations, start crafting a menu and put some sparkling wine on your shopping list!
Yli-Takkulan Tila – A unique rural venue
Located in Northern Espoo, Yli-Takkulan Tila offers a manor-like atmosphere for hosting parties and events. The farm's old horse-drawn machinery, threshing machine, and many other vintage tools create an authentic ambiance on the pristine Barn attic. During the summer season, the Barn attic of Yli-Takkula is a popular wedding and celebration venue. The space can accommodate approximately 100 guests, and it also has its own catering area with empty surfaces and refrigerators, making it easy to arrange food and beverages. Through the large glass wall of the venue, you can enjoy stunning rural views!
Trap Factory – Party inside a former factory
Trap Factory is the perfect place to host proper celebrations and great after-parties. Located in Otaniemi just 10 minutes away from Helsinki city center, Trap Factory offers much more than just escape room games. This industrial-style building is extremely popular as a party and event venue, and for good reason! The modern party space provides an attractive and distinctive setting for wedding receptions, family gatherings, birthday parties, and graduation celebrations. This venue, built inside of a former factory, has over 300 m2 of space!
Wäinölä – A magical venue in the Nuuksio forest
Wäinölä is a truly enchanting party venue in the middle of the forest, nestled in the embrace of Nuuksio National Park. Wäinölä takes its name from the home village of the great hero Väinämöinen in the Finnish epic Kalevala, and it is built in the spirit of the Iron Age. This log-house embraces Finnish traditions and craftsmanship, with guests being able to sit on benches adorned with hides and old tapestries. When the weather is good, you can start the festivities at the outdoor campfire place in Wäinölä's courtyard! The house itself is suitable for parties of up to 40 people.
