Yelp! Event: AvoHotel

Sara was invited to a Yelp! event on Monday and asked me to join her so we headed to Dalston to check out a new boutique hotel.

Avo Hotel is located on a main street but seemed to be in a residential area. It is family run and was actually the family’s house before they turned it into a hotel.  I love that the space has a story behind it.

The actual event was a lot of fun.  The food was all homemade and beyond delicious.

Pankora – fried bliss

Spicy peanuts which weren’t that spicy.

Beer & wine of course:

That’s Sunny….her family owns the hotel and used to live in the space!  They also cooked all the food which was so flavorful.

They were also offering mhendi which Sara and I signed up for it.

And the final product:

So beautiful!

Here is a tour of the hotel:

I love reading so I couldn’t stop looking at the titles they have.

The penthouse:

Brand new, modern bathrooms:

Very narrow stairs:

Overall, the event was so much fun.  We hung out, ate, drank and chatted with other Londoners.  Can’t wait for the next Yelp! event!
