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…
It started with two separate companies doing lots of business together and partnering in various projects. That got us thinking – why do it separately if you can do it together? Why compete with each other when we could join forces and be much stronger, faster and versatile. Luckily thoughts united 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.
This day, it’s still all about friendships and interesting concepts. We share a passion for good food, tasty cocktails and great hospitality. Things have changed but the original mission is still with us. 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 bet on.
At the moment Son of a Punch consist of four cocktailbars, one restaurant chain and bunch of catering – all of which are united with a strong concept and passion for its specific product. We aim for creating new possibilities, experiences and options for our guests. Be it our (already buried) quirky Asian themed cocktailbar 100 Dogs or the first certified pizza Napoletana in Helsinki, 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 30 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 of different concepts and thousands of events. The key to success in the hospitality is the ability to work in a constantly changing industry, accommodate different concepts and with different 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.
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.
We can assure you that we will continue thriving for new, innovative and creative projects – all this for tasty drinks, delightful food, personalized service and wild concepts.
If you’re thinking about something cool, have a wild business idea on your mind, or just really good at what you do, let us know – maybe we can do it together.
Courage and experience are tools for making things happen.
