Located on main street Katoomba, AVALON lies hidden behind an unassuming entrance. Enter the 1930's Savoy Theatre foyer, make your way past the ticket booth and venture upstairs to find a unique, spacious and highly atmospheric venue, offering a decor of quirky retro finds, eclectic artwork and sweeping views across Leura village and the Jamison Valley.
A diverse menu combining influences from around the globe is prepared in the old projection room, while classic cocktails and retro tunes are served in the former refreshment lounge, now a cosy bar complete with fireplace. With a focus on local producers, AVALON showcases more than 80 Australian wines and craft beers to try.
Local musicians perform each week in the dining room at the popular Friday Supper Club, and there’s a calendar of special events to entertain. The style of service is casual and friendly. Fully licensed and BYO (wine only).
