  • Visitor Information

Trendy Shoreditch has more than its fair share of cocktail bars and clubs but Avalon is prepared to take them on offering a late night spot where you'll find DJs, dance tunes and an interior that's decked out in a modern mix of gilt chairs and traditional Oriental design. Chinese hand-carved screens and crushed silver velvet chaise longue are combined with a black marble bar highlighted by low level LED lighting. An impressive cocktail list has been created by head barman, Frankie Campopiano, with Asian influences, once again, coming through in signature drinks like Cherry Blossom and Karma Sip-tra. At the back of the venue, The Garden provides a large outdoor terrace space - which lends itself to becoming an outdoor cinema, a silent disco, or a summer garden-party. Later in the year, a lower-level luxury spa and treatment room will be launched complete with mosaic-tiled Jacuzzi bathing pools, private 'Mini Pool Party Rooms' with hot tubs and relaxation area.
