It is a block off Warren, the primary street of shops and restaurants. It is a fun atmosphere and the food was delicious. It is a great place for dinner or just to have a drink. It is mainly a southern menu.

Hudson is a small artsy town southeast of Albany NY. I was very surprised to find a place so upbeat and cool in Hudson. The decor inside is great it looks like an older saloon, great woodwork and an amazing bar with wonderful beer selections. The food was good as well. Hard to find Southern type food in upstate NY,...

Wow! Finding great creole food in Hudson NY was a surprise, particularly in a place called Helsinki. Music with combined and separate food venue is the heart of Helsinki. Shrimp and grits, BBQ, and other southern delicacies are crispy, spicy and full of rich flavor. On the night we were there the music was from Beausoleil, the best of New... More

Combination of dinner-with-lover and in the background a Tuesday night open-mike, which we visited after the meal. The sound of a full band in the venue-next-door did not disturb our dinner, but it was so engaging that we had to sample it after our dinner. We found the range of the menu wonderful, and tried things from different "traditions" (southern--that's... More

We were in Hudson via boat and stopped into Club Helsinki for open mic night on a recommendation. Most acts were pretty good. There were a few people that I wish I could have fast forward that were making a statement via a poem or a power point presentation that I thought was silly. We enjoyed Gorilla Bob who does... More

The ambience is relaxed, casual, and very comfortable. The menu is not extensive but the food is excellent as is the service. This is a great place for dinner and they can accommodate large groups upstairs. The bar is fun and the music venue is terrific with really great groups and entertainers. They are great for couples, family, friends, and... More

Stopped in for a nightcap, it was kind of quiet (then again it was Monday night) - but lively enough. Bartender was friendly and we even made some friends at the bar. We didn't really venture from the bar but could see that the space was big and open, it looks like a great venue to see music. The smell... More

Our foursome stopped for a quick cocktail before heading to dinner elsewhere. We’re told this was a former bus garage now converted to a restaurant/bar/concert venue. Impressive is the perfect adjective. Before we departed, the bartender gave my wife and I a quick tour of the concert hall portion. She said if you come for dinner and a concert you... More

Finally made the trip up from Atlanta, GA to visit this gem of historic repurposing in Hudson, NY. A 19th century factory of brick and iron now houses several rooms for an intimate or grand life experience in music, good and friendship. There's a warmth to the industrial age, recycled skeletons of architectural salvage designed in a comfortable, artful passion... More

Love to go here Sunday nights! New menu is wonderful. We split the brisket and I had tomatoes w/nuts and herbs. Both were delicious! We sat in the garden and tables are generous and not too close together. Service is very good!
