Welcome to a taste trip every day of the week.
Originally built in 1972, Hotel Hesperia was one of the top hotels of its time. Hesperia - in the name of the hotel – refers to the nearby park area and its history. In the early 19th century, the area was known by the Hesperia villa and outdoor restaurant in the park. The name of the park is derived from the ancient Greek name of the western countries (Italy and Spain), Hesperia, or "Western country".
The Hesperia Park became the subject of greater interest for the first time in 1758, when a mineral spring was discovered in the park. In 1828 confectioner Christian Menn set up a summer restaurant in the shores of Töölönlahti Bay.
The restaurant at Hesperia Park was a gathering place for golden youth in Helsinki during the summer. There were plenty of performances, shows, concerts and fireworks. The area also had plenty of amusement equipment such as a carousel, bowling alleys and a small theater.
1873, the new restaurant in Hesperia was built. The ground floor of the restaurant was built of brick and the old wooden house on Mikonkatu street was moved to as the second floor. The restaurant business ceased in Hesperia in April 1892, after which it became a public park.
