Cottons Caribbean restaurant and bar owner, Chris Singam, is set to open a new pan-Asian bar and restaurant on Camden's Inverness Street, in late 2016.

Miusan, which means new temple in Cantonese, will be 'playfully' modelled on the opulent opium dens of 1940s New York and Paris.

The 2,245 sq ft three-floored venue will comprise of a ground floor bar and dining area, sub basement dance floor and a mezzanine with space for private hire and a VIP area.

Cocktails will also be Asian inspired with the Lau’s Den cocktail which uses vodka, sake, coconut cream, passion-fruit and lychee juice and the Shanghai Alley with tequila, Maraschino cherry syrup, rice syrup fresh grapefruit and fresh lime.

Interiors will include dark velvet seating and thick and heavy brocade curtains, while staff will be dressed in traditional Cantonese cheongsams.
