This is a party you certainly don’t want to miss!

Have you ever attended a business party in prison?

On the 31st of May, the old, notorious Kakola Prison, built for the most hardened criminals in Finland, will be transformed into a relaxing party atmosphere for businessmen and influencers.

This year’s party theme is REALITIES

Take a walk through the aisles of the haunted jail cells, enjoy the last hours of the evening in the magical courtyard or take the galaxy stairs to different realities. The possibilities are endless. There will be art to admire, groovy music to dance to and incredible performances to watch. We'll be serving cold beverages from our open bar and guests are able to buy tasty street food from our partner restaurant Kakolanruusu.

Kakola Yhtiöt Oy is the new Warden of Kakola. Kakola was the most famous prison in Finland until 2007. It was designed for long-term confinement, and during 150 years, all the notorious criminals in Finland were sent there. They are turning the area into a unique neighbourhood with different services including a restaurant, a bakery, a brewery, a day spa, a hotel, a museum and much more to come.

Restaurant Kakolanruusu opened in May 2017 in the old administration wing of the Kakola prison. Kakolanruusu will serve its guests in two large dining halls, a café and a large courtyard terrace. The menu consists of simple but delicious dishes that are served to be shared. Seasonal products and local producers are respected. Kakolanruusu is founded by the same merry group that is behind Kaskis, the first Finnish restaurant outside Helsinki with a recommendation in the Michelin Guide.

A prison invitation has never sounded as good as this: welcome to Kakola!
