PKW Restaurant & Bar
On the ground floor of Hotel Atwater, PKW, which stands for Philip Knight Wrigley, will offer a unique dining experience, with custom décor that gives a nod to Philip’s interest in aviation and his reputation for being a mechanically-minded man who liked to tinker with his cars, boats and other machinery. Communal tables and a “statement” bar will make PKW a favorite Avalon gathering place, where guests can interact over share plates, world class wines and classic cocktails in a lively, welcoming atmosphere.
