About Elysium Group

Hello and Welcome.

Established in Colchester for almost 20 years and founded by entrepreneur Arash Afzalnia, Elysium Group was forged from a real passion for the hospitality industry. Graduating from The University of Essex with an Electronic Engineering Degree, Arash founded his first venture, an IT company while still studying, which later became a successful multi-million dollar business. Launching from the platform of achieved success and inspired by a love for travel, design and operational trends, in 2000 Arash purchased his first venue in Colchester and Elysium Group was born.

From exquisite intimate dining to boutique bars and vibrant restaurants, Elysium Group is now mother to an array of successful venues in Colchester with a portfolio of diverse brands built with a focus on service, experience, innovation and design. With a number of new and exciting acquisitions in the pipeline, the group is not only set to expand throughout Essex but has plans to develop the brands to further towns and cities.
