Where to Drink: Tropical tiki bars in London

Five places where you'll never have to ask 'Why is the rum gone?'

Five places where you'll never have to ask 'Why is the rum gone?'


Laki Kane

What? Small but mighty tiki bar with occasional rum masterclasses

Where? Upper Street, Islington (link)

Why? Laki Kane doesn’t take itself too seriously, but it does take its rum seriously - don’t miss out on their delicious cocktails, or the chance to learn more in one of their masterclasses


Mahiki

What? Renowned cocktail bar and club with tropical-themed drinks

Where? Mayfair, duh

Why? If you want to try spotting some celebrities, get your (very) glad rags on and head to Mahiki. Its glory days were arguably back in the noughties (all the socialites are calling themselves influencers now) but it’s definitely still worth a visit


Kanaloa

What? Dancey bar that goes all out on the theme, serving cocktails in coconuts

Where? The City

Why? This is a bar that truly brings the tropical vibes, with great music to boot. Also, we repeat: they SERVE the COCKTAILS in COCONUTS


Nine Lives

What? 1950s California tiki bar transported to south London

Where? London Bridge

Why? Their zero-waste approach to cocktail making is pretty cool, and the drinks taste great - try the Moby Dick, a tropical take on an Old Fashioned with salted caramel


Trailer Happiness

What? Retro Polynesian cocktail bar

Where? Up Portobello Road

Why? Trailer Happiness is the epitome of kitsch-cute. Plus, we love their Caribbean bar snacks
