About us

Fade To Black at the Quadrant, Marshalswick, St Albans was set up in 2019 primarily as a coffee shop. Over time it has developed into a vibrant evening destination from a Thursday to Saturday night as well as throughout the day.

We also have regular events which have produced an excellent local following and now become a local hub for residents.  Wines available by the glass or bottle and a selection of homemade platters and nibbles can be enjoyed in a casual yet stylish setting. We also sell draught beers and other alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.


Fade to Black at Trestle Arts Base, Step into a world where history meets creativity at our second location nestled within the walls of a century-old chapel, lovingly transformed into a vibrant performing arts centre. Located in the tranquil setting of Highfield Park, this unique venue offers fantastic facilities for all occasions.

Beyond serving our exceptional coffee, we aim to foster a sense of community within the venue and to become a go-to destination where people can connect and unwind. Join us for an array of new and exciting events curated to match the vibe and ambiance of this unique setting.

From live music nights to an array of classic cinema nights, or just chilling where every moment is infused with creativity and community.
