Työpajankatu 2, 00580 Helsinki

The former Helsinki abattoir from 1933, re-opened in 2012 as Teurastamo Helsinki, is a melting pot of food and urban culture. Currently there are a dozen active businesses operating in the Teurastamo area, ranging from restaurants to urban events, from a business college to a coffee roastery and from a distillery to a pasta factory. Together, these businesses form Teurastamo, but the area also serves as the shared living room and backyard of the residents of Helsinki, open all year round and featuring a yard with a grill and a rental sauna.
