Avalanche, an Alpine inspired, pop-up tipi bar and grill concept has arrived in Halifax and made The Piece Hall its home for the next seven weeks.

“Avalanche at The Piece Hall” offers a laid-back atmosphere with authentic food and drink, inspired by owners Matt and Niamh’s multiple skiing trips to the Alps.

The three-peaked tipi is dressed with quirky additions such as skis, ski boots and not forgetting the cable car photobooth.

The open fire, festoon lights and wooden seating create a rustic vibe and overall festive experience.

A menu showcasing some of the Alps most treasured delicacies has been created; a firm favourite being Tartiflette, a dish from Savoy in the Alps made with potatoes, cheese, lardons and onion topped with raclette cheese.

“So, come down and sample your very own taste of the Alps in this unique venue as the perfect addition to your festive celebrations.”
