The Theater Crowd: Bar & Co. in Helsinki

December 13, 2012

In close proximity to Helsinki's Alexander Theatre, National Theatre, and Swedish Theatre, the newly opened Bar & Co. is the new post-performance hangout in the city. Designed by Joanna Laajisto, the bar and restaurant is a modern take on a 1920s-style bistro.

Laajisto started with a long marble bar and tabletop, adding touches of wrought iron, black bentwood chairs, and cognac-leather covered oak benches. Bar & Co., connected to Kitchen & Co.

Bar & Co. is located between Bulevari and Uudenmaankatu at Yrjönkatu 18; for more visit Joanna Laajisto.
