Vanai Bistro & Bastu brings people, food and life back to the Varikonniemi area of Vanai Bistro & Bastu brings people, food and life back to the Varikonniemi area of Hämeenlinna, where the Finnish army and people have been supplied since the 1920’s. A century later, the garage and laundry of the red brick Mensa canned food factory sees new life as an urban meeting place: Vanai is a bistro restaurant, a bar, a beer garden and a sauna.

A century later, the garage and laundry of tVanai is the brainchild of Kaarina Tamminen, a local native who gets to fulfill her dream in her hometown. With experience from international kitchens and working under top Finnish chefs, Kaarina wants to offer the people of Hämeenlinna simple and smashing flavour experiences, sincere service and an easy-going place to socialize.
