Lahden Upseerikerho

The history of Lahden Upseerikerho (The Officer´s Club of Lahti) begins already in 1911 when Finland was still part of Tsardom of Russia. The building of Upseerikerho was completed in 1913. Finland became independent in 1917 and Upseerikerho started a new era by serving Finnish officers. Since then Lahden Upseerikerho has been under the Finnish Defence Forces.

Although during the last decades the restaurant has been open to everyone. Etelä-Suomen Juhlapalvelu Ky has been hosting Lahden Upseerikerho for 17 years. Lahden Upseerikerho is widely known and appreciated restaurant which offers beautiful and dignified premises and delicious food for any kind of celebration or ceremony. The restaurant is open at request. Lahden Upseerikerho wishes you warmly welcome!

The officers’ club can be booked for meetings, parties and events seating 20 to 275 people.

The officers’ club’s services include:

  • restaurant services
  • meeting and party facilities
  • party services
  • catering
  • space rental
  • lunch buffet


During weekdays the officers’ club serves as a restaurant where we plan the lunch menu based on seasonal vegetables and other products, always using local produce whenever possible. The lunch buffet is served on weekdays between 10.30 am and 2 pm.

The lunch consists of the main course alternatives, a soup, a rich salad buffet, bread and spreads, dessert and coffee. Ice water to drink.

For groups, we can also serve a lunch buffet by order in another room or outside the normal lunch hours. The minimum number of people in the group is 20.

Wanha Sode

Unique former military cafeteria in green surroundings that can host a variety of events.

Dating back to 1914, Wanha Sode in the middle of the garrison was originally designed as a Russian Orthodox army church. Never finished by the Russians, the building was converted decades later by Finns into a military cafeteria. The old feel of the place can still be seen in the masonry heaters and the design based on an Orthodox church.

The premises of the military cafeteria can be converted into a number of uses, and you can use it for a christening, graduation party, meetings, recreational events and wedding, for example. The place is big enough for even larger events: there is room for 250 seats, and if people are standing, you can fit in 400.

Event venue in Lahti where you can bring your own catering

Wanha Sode can be booked with services or without them. Although the premises is not licensed to sell alcohol, you are welcome to supply your own alcoholic beverages for your event. You can also book the place with tablecloths and tableware and serving staff. Catering services are also possible.
