Club Helsinki is a treat for foodies who will delight in the eclectic southern style smokey BBQ menu options. We love the rustic chic interior of the old bus depot that has been meticulously restored. There was a candle at our table that was most useful to read the menu because it was quite dark, but the overall ambiance was... More

We would love to have really seen what seemed like a cool space, but the lighting was SO dim that diners were using their phone lights just to get a glimpse at the menu - even with that, still a struggle. Maybe the dark, cool vibe would have worked for us for the music venue, but we simply like to... More

As for the club and to see a show it is a wonderful place to be. As for the food, since we don't like the smoked(meat) then it does not fit with our usual food taste but we still had a wonderful time.

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
