Mahiki, London

If you are in the Mayfair area in London and looking for cocktails to unwind, Mahiki
next to the swank Ritz Hotel in the heart of prestigious Mayfair, serves mean cocktails. A trendy tropical escape and top clubbing venue Mahiki has been a white-hot celebrity hang-out since its 2006 opening by Piers Adam and Nick House.

Two floors of posh Polynesian playground, the Mahiki is known for ultra-delicious cocktails, and a funky resort ambience. Despite its popularity with the glitterati, the super-cool Mahiki has retained an open-door policy, though lines may form later in the evening. Try to slip in early on the popular Thursday theme nights. Friendly and relaxed as a South Sea beach-front sunset bar, the Mahiki delights with vibrant Hawaiian cushions, cheeky Tiki statues, wicker furniture and flickering lamplight.

Truly tropical, Mahiki’s innovative fresh fruit cocktail delights are served in coconut and pineapple tiki-cups, while the Island Grill serves up some tasty tapas. Relax in the laid-back Lanai cocktail lounge area, or let your hair down, flowers and all, in the campy and colorful Aloha Room, where rockin’ DJ’s bring cool beats to this Polynesian playground.
