Humuhumu’s description:
Trailer Happiness is a retro-California lounge in the Notting Hill section of London, opened by John Downey in 2004. Rather than a finding its inspiration in midcentury Polynesian restaurants, it aims for the feel of an American, kitch-heavy, basement rumpus room.

The tiki-heavy drink menu was developed with a helping hand from famed cocktailian Dale DeGroff.

It's also the home of the Nottinghill Rum club - regular Rum tastings are held here.

I spent for days in London recently and made two visits to Trailer Happiness. it's not tiki per see, but it serves truly great tiki drinks. The Zombie I had there was memorable. And the two house drinks I sampled (the Atomic Punch and the the Trailer Grog) tasted great too. It's fun bar with good lounge music and a great retro decor. You feel like you're in a basement in the seventies. Behind the bar, there's a shrine to Don the Beachcomber, Trader Vic and Beachbum Berry - which is a very good sign in my opinion. Notting Hill is a fun place to visit and Trailer Happiness is a very good reason to do it.
