Situated in the heart of the city above Liverpool One, Aether is renowned for its expertly crafted cocktails and opulent interiors, providing a lost paradise beyond imagination. Now, for the first time, guests will be able to enjoy their drinks with a mouth-watering menu of Chinese-inspired donuts and Dim Sum, from pioneering street food brand, Yu Donut.

Available everyday from June throughout the summer months, Yu Donut will offer an enticing menu of savoury donuts, noodle bowls and Dim Sum, with vegan and vegetarian options available.
