Kosola Tavern

Kosola Tavern

The historical tavern at the Kosola House, which stands as a landmark in Lapua, is open again after a hundred-year break. The extensive restoration of the house is now ready as far as the tavern the first floor is concerned, and it now houses a lunch café and an open-to-order restaurant. In winter the tavern is open from Monday to Friday between 10.00 – 17.00.  In summer we have more opening hours, also on weekends. 

The tavern accommodates 60 customer places on the ground floor. The tavern as well as the big rooms beside and a meeting room upstears serve also as facilities for family parties, business events, and the events arranged in the house. They accommodate 70-95 customer places more. The house has Internet access, modern meeting technology, a sound system and an acoustic piano. All catering is handled by Tavern´s own staff. 

The house complex was built in its place on the bank of River Lapuanjoki in three stages, the earliest of which dates back to the 18th century. In 1861, changes were made on top of the structures of this oldest part of the house, from which the lower wing section of the house, the current tavern, was eventually built. In 1887, a two and a half storey house facing the riverbank was built diagonally next to it, and in 1959, the two houses were merged with connecting passages and stairs into a complex of about 700 square metres and 24 rooms. 

Illustrated history presentations are held by the house’s storytellers Heli Karhumäki and Taina Hautamäki.
