Get tropical - three London Tiki highlights
What better way to combat the onset of autumn – hello there grey, rainy days – than with some tropical flair and Fifties Tiki fun? Here are three London Tiki highlights guaranteed to cheer you up.
South London Pacific
The South London Pacific bar and club is the London venue for Tiki fun, Fifties jive and tropical cocktails. The bar, which is decked out with plenty of bamboo, Easter island masks and flower garlands, is also home to the regular Hula Boogie! club night, which always starts with DJ Miss Aloha teaching the popular Fifties Hukilau Hula Dance.
If you want a little beauty pick-me-up, head to Tiki-inspired beauty salon Hula Nails. The super friendly girls there will paint your nails with kitsch Fifties details while you sip a cocktail from a plastic pineapple. This is the ultimate girls-only retro pampering experience!
Get Hot or Go Home
New Tiki night Get Hot or Go Home promises to be the place to be for a night of Fifties and Sixties vinyl dancefloor killers and exotica at a secret bamboo hide-away. The club night runs on a regular basis, so throw on your Hawaiian shirts or flower dresses and dance the night away.
