The Glass

Bistro. Café. A rum bar. Come for a drink or lunch. For coffee or dinner. We serve you from morning to night seven days a week.

The menu

Nordic bistro with strong vegetarian foundation. Ingredients come locally and spices from afar. Classics and premieres. Multi course dinner or single bites, but always an experience.

The Location

It is difficult to locate more in the centre. Kämp Gallery and basement. Entrance from the mall or in the evening from the street Mikonkatu 1.

The Staff

Attitude, professionalism and customer appreciation. A top person who’s not shy to be himself. Humorous and authentic. That’s who we are.


We have made and innovated ways to keep you and our staff healthy. To enjoy and not fear. We will be happy to tell you more about this and our other sustainable development activities.

The Finnish Museum of Photography’s new exhibition space

It started as many good stories begin – from a restaurant. Two friends, both well-known professionals. Two glasses and a bottle of good Riesling. One throws out an idea and the other gets interested. A long conversation follows. Another bottle of Riesling. More discussion. Ideas fly and vision becomes brighter. Notes are being made on a napkin. A promise and a handshake. The Glass is born.

Next brunch will be served

K1’s inaugural exhibition: Marilyn & Coco

The new K1 exhibition space of the Finnish Museum of Photography is located on the ground floor of Kämp Galleria and will open to the public on August 20. The opening exhibitions are the two photographic series Coco Chanel and An Evening with Marilyn by the Canadian Douglas Kirkland (b. 1934). Kirkland had a long career in Hollywood and is particularly well known for his work with the stars. Kirkland photographed Marilyn Monroe and Coco Chanel when he was working for Look magazine in New York at the beginning of the 1960s.

Since the majority of summer events in Helsinki have been canceled, the exhibitions at K1 and the renewed Kämp Galleria offer the city’s residents a little magic and stardust but also a new place in which to spend time, meet friends and family, and enjoy art, fashion, design, and good food. K1 was designed by the award-winning architectural firm Futudesign, based in Helsinki.

“Creating new and interesting places in the Helsinki city center is more important now than perhaps ever before. People need a reason to return, but in a safe way, of course,” says Tanja Pasanen, Kämp Galleria’s Business and Marketing Manager.

Together with the Finnish Museum of Photography, Kämp Galleria is creating a new operational model, bringing together different commercial and non-commercial functions and operators. Well-curated content and a sense of community and responsibility are at the heart of this.
