Address: Fabianinkatu 14, 00100 Helsinki, Finland
Built in 1911 in the heart of Helsinki, the Helsinki Stock Exchange building has a colorful history. Over the decades the majestic stone building has witnessed key moments in Finland’s history and the development of the nation’s business and restaurant culture.


Stock exchange trading in Finland began in the 1860s. At first, market activities were unorganized and lacked a regular venue. In 1907, prominent merchants Julius Tallberg and Viktor Ek joined forces with a few fellow businessmen and bought a piece of land in Fabianinkatu Street to house the Helsinki Stock Exchange. Leading Finnish architect Lars Sonck was invited to design the building, which is now regarded as one of his finest works and one of the most impressive examples of Finland’s 20th century Art Nouveau architecture.


Today Restaurant Pörssi is owned by Royal Ravintolat Ltd, the largest private restaurant company in Finland. Restaurant Pörssi is known as a high-quality restaurant for special functions, providing a venue for banquets, corporate events, parties, weddings and other receptions.
