Let’s go back a few years to 2011 when it all began. A group of friends that were all united with a strong passion for developing the restaurant, hospitality and bar industry met to set a mission that would change the Helsinki’s and the whole Finland’s industry for good.
Where it all began…
Before uniting the group was divided into two separate companies we were doing a lot of business together, partnering in various projects. That got us thinking – why compete with each other when we could join forces and be much stronger, faster and versatile. That finally happened and a bunch of bartenders joined forces with a bright vision for the future of the bar industry; to create Finland’s first cocktail revolution and put Helsinki in the map of cocktail around the world. Something truly new and innovative was born: Son of a Punch was born.
Today, it’s still all about friendships and interesting concepts. We share a passion for good food, tasty drinks and great hospitality. A lot has changed in the past few years but the original mission is still up to date. We want to make sure our guests always feel welcome and are able to experience something interesting when visiting us. Also, the importance of making noise globally and introducing Scandinavian scene to the world is something we believe in.
At the moment Son of a Punch consist of four bars, one restaurant chain and bunch of catering – all of which are united with a strong concept and passion for its specific product that is being served in that venue. We aim for creating new possibilities, experiences and options for our guests. Be it a quirky Asian themed cocktailbar 100 Dogs or the first certified pizza Napoletana, Pizzeria Via Tribunali, we always push ourselves to achieve this. This is not our job; it’s our privilege, and our lifestyle.
We are a gang of around 40 enthusiasts, crazy, professional, cocktail bastards that spread the positive joy forward. We love what we do and enjoy every moment of it. Through years, we have been part in opening hundreds of different concepts and thousands of events. Thus, it is safe to say that our portfolio is one of the largest in this country. And this is something we believe is our strong side and differentiate from others. The ability to work in a constantly changing industry, with different concepts and with versatile people. The talent to get excited and inspire the surroundings into more positive thinking. The skills to make our guests feel welcome and give a little surprise to their experience. From Helsinki or Turku, all the way up to Lapland.
For the past few years we have been granted for the possibility to do what we truly love and dreamed for. Wild concept after another, crazy party after the other always focusing on quality drink and food. It has been wonderful to see that all of this funny madness has always found it’s place and time.
You can be sure that we will continue thriving for new, innovative and creative projects and all this is done for you to enjoy tasty drinks, delightful food, personalized service and wild concepts. While the others are thinking about it, we have already done it. While the others try to do it, we do it better. The courage and the bravery next to honor are our tools for making things happen.
