Great decor, done I believe by the same person that did Mahiki. Very much an after 9pm party bar. Nice menu, we did one of their platters with all the familiar items, quite tasty. The signature drinks we had where nice and well executed. Our Daiquiri/MaiTai usuals were also well executed but seemed light on rum. The bartenders seemed knowledgeable. You'll need to take a combination of Tube and Rail services to get here but don't let that dissuade you, it's all with reach of your zone 1-6 day pass. No need for extra train tickets.

Boilerplate London Tiki Bar Comment: (you'll see this on all my reviews from London so if you've read it once you can skip over it). All the tiki bars in London are very thinly tiki themed, under their skin they are all just after 9pm party bars. It should be noted that all our visits were before that, about 6pm. None of them played any music that came close to exotica, cocktail, surf.... They all had very vodka forward cocktail menus and even though there were recognizable drink names they were generally void of any rum. Our general process for cocktail evaluation is for us to try a couple of their signature drinks and then order a simple Havana Club Daiquiri and a MaiTai. None of the London menus had a traditional MaiTai or Daiquiri listed. There are probably exceptions to this rule but in general pubs are for boys and all other types of bars are for girls. The burlesque club and tiki bars we visited had pretty much exclusive customer base of women and "Hen Parties", just a drinking culture thing here in London I assume.

I do think it makes a difference when you visit this bar. I have been on Saturday and Sunday afternnons and it is very relaxed and lovely. Saturday (and probably Friday) evenings, however, the place is packed, noisy and blasting out inappropriate music.
