Friday by the piano starts off the weekend

Each Friday at Kappeli Café, the piano is king from 5 pm onwards. You're welcome to listen and watch pianist Osmo Palonen’s fingers glide over the keys. Contact with his listeners is a highlight of his performances. Palonen values the feedback he gets from average music listeners in his audience. It shapes his musical interpretations.

Palonen builds his performance to fit the atmosphere from a selection of nearly one thousand pieces. You can also ask him to play your favourite song.

Kappeli Café – where the stories are as big as life!

Kappeli Café has one of the richest traditions of any meeting-place in Helsinki. It also offers a view to the Market Square and a long way beyond it as well. In the morning, it’s café latte and a croissant, at lunch-time the Soup of the Day, and in the evening something small and salty/sweet, plus a glass of wine and beer on tap. If you arrive here after a film or the theatre, you can have a drink while you enjoy the panoramic views of Esplanade Park, the Market Square and Uspenski Cathedral.

The interior designs by architect Jutta Johansson are a tribute to Kappeli Café as well as to the heritage and warmth of the entire building.
