We at East Liberty Development, Inc. are sorry to see AVA Bar & Lounge leave East Liberty. We’ve all enjoyed having Justin in the neighborhood.

Justin was truly a pioneer in East Liberty, opening a coffee shop known as Shadow Lounge that grew to be an entertainment and social hub in the neighborhood, leading him to open AVA as well. Efforts like his have made East Liberty into what it is today. We’re proud to have supported the efforts of Justin and other pioneers, vocally and financially, throughout the years.

Best of luck in your new location, Justin and the entire staff of AVA. We know you’ll do your new neighborhood proud, and we’ll see you for a Happy Hour wherever you move.
