Parties of all Sorts... Weddings, Rehearsal Dinners, Brunches, Birthdays and More...
Helsinki Hudson is located on the Hudson River, approximately two hours north of NYC by road or rail (Amtrak) in the city of Hudson. Once a colorful center of the whaling industry, the town now blossoms as a vibrant cultural mecca thanks to a large influx of working artists, and has been compared to New Orleans for its ornate and stately architecture. The crown jewel of the historic city's artistic and economic rebirth, Helsinki Hudson is comprised of Club Helsinki, a nationally recognized music venue, and the adjacent, award-winning Restaurant at Helsinki. In addition to its ongoing role of serving up world-class music and fine dining, the versatile venue is available for hire as a unique site for private parties or events – complete with a custom prepared menu or Banquet Menu of choice.
Spaces to Celebrate
The Right Fit for Any Occasion, Helsinki Hudson is a beautifully renovated 1863 industrial building. We feature four distinct and accommodating spaces, each of which is available separately or in any combination. Helsinki is also fully wheelchair accessible.
The Restaurant at Helsinki
The Restaurant at Helsinki is a popular dining destination revered for its constantly evolving menu of sumptuously innovative comfort food. The restaurant itself has a seated capacity of 85, and features table and booth seating and a full-service bar. Groups of adjacent tables may also be reserved for smaller parties.
An acoustically designed, multi-tiered live event theatre space, Club Helsinki has a capacity of 225. The club features table and booth seating, a full-service bar, a lavish dance floor and large stage with a full PA, monitor, and lighting system (house engineers are available for private events; ask club about recommended bands or DJs). As in the restaurant, groups of adjacent tables may be reserved for smaller parties.
The club and attached Restaurant are divided by a set of floor-to-ceiling hand hewn wooden wall panels, which may be opened to bring the two spaces together for increased capacity of nearly 500.
Directly above The Restaurant is The Ballroom, a beautiful space with wooden dance floor, table seating, bar, and a baby grand piano (a pianist or a small musical group, such as a string quartet or trio, perfectly complements many events; ask for recommendations). The ballroom's separate access makes it especially well-suited for weddings, cocktail parties, or other private gatherings.
Directly connected to The Restaurant is the outdoor courtyard, which is open during the warmer months. The garden area has table seating, and can also be used to extend the capacity of functions being held in The Restaurant. Tenting can also be arranged for courtyard events.
