An event is the moment when something changes. At Sofia we understand that an event is a very special moment for you and your community. Celebrations, weddings, staff parties, an once-in-a-lifetime concert for your grandmother, christening a baby, a cocktail hour with friends or a memorial service of your deceased loved one – we can provide the premises, catering and expertise that will make your event an unforgettable one.

The great premises of Sofia will provide you with the perfect environment for celebrating the end of a task. Our experience with these special events will help you concentrate on the celebration and your friends.

Our professional and friendly staff will prepare a delicious meal and will make sure that food and atmosphere of the evening will also be unforgettable.


A celebration is always for the guests. On an anniversary it is always important to remember those that made you what you are. To thank for the common past and especially to plan the future. After a good celebration, the guests will leave with new thoughts and ideas, thankful for enjoying the best evening. Each celebration will be made with 250 years of experience and knowing that at that moment in the world you and your guests are living in just that moment. Let’s make that a great moment!

Theme parties

Sometimes it’s good to let your hair down. It’s not about running naked to the statue of Havis Amanda, it’s about freeing oneself from the everyday chores by playing a bit and participating together a new situation. Costume party, dance party, agent party, the 20’s, Halloween, twerk party, cowboyland, pyjama party, Saturday Night Fever, Marie Antoinette party or whatever you rocks your boat will give your guests the permission to have fun already before the party. We will live with your party and Sofia, a place with character, will suit different themes easily and with style.

Seasonal parties

Traditionally celebrations have been divided into seasons connected with time of the year, celestial movements, religional celebrations, agriculture, availability of foodstuffs and much more. There are also local celebrations, global theme days, reminiscence days etc. All of these have earned their place in the tradition of celebration and gathering together, and they can well be celebrated by collecting together people to meet and enjoy the moment as a part of a wider cultural experience. Christmas party, St. Patrick’s Day, Oktoberfest, crab party, asparagus party, independence day, new year, May 1st, start of summer season and so many others as well. It might be a good idea to think whether you or your company do have an own significant time that you would like to share with friends. So let’s get things moving.
