This week’s 5 Of Brings a selection of the best, most welcoming and extravagant Polynesian cocktail and party spots.
Well, what can I say that hasn’t already been said about this place. Anyone that is anyone has been to Mahiki, the favourite of the rich, famous and the in-between. A regular haunt of Princes William and Harry in their party years this West End club is a dream for those looking for cocktails that involve half a coconut and a grass skirt thrown in. Thursday’s are the night to be seen here.
Holborn’s answer to the Tiki phenomenon has its fair share of suits during the week but just as many Haiwaian shirts. Pop in and say Aloha, Friday’s are especially worth the visit.
A gem of a place. A little taste of paradise in South London with a real beach party vibe. Mixed crowd and mixed cocktails abound. Vietnamese finger food will allow for extra rum punch. Saturdays should be the best time to make a visit.
The home of the original Mai-Tai cocktail Trader Vic’s is steeped in history as far as the tiki-bar goes. Expanded to international shores in 1963 from its US origins at London’s Hilton on Park Lane followed by a booming success in the Middle East in 1994 with multiple franchise openings.
Another Polynesian spot in dirty south, this place is perfect for weekend high-jinks and rum based high drinks. Clapham is renowned for its party atmosphere and this place is no exception.
