Hot new London bar openings

Laki Kane

With pineapples having been tipped as ‘the new avocado’, the tiki cocktail trend in London is showing no sign of slowing. Hoping to ride that tropical wave is Laki Kane, a chic new tiki bar on Islington’s buzzing Upper Street run by ex-Mahiki manage Georgi Radev.

Rush roofing, rope ladders, palm wallpaper and a wooden bar fashioned into the shape of a galleon add to the venue’s desert island theme. Taking inspiration from Bob Bob Ricard’s beloved ‘Press for Champagne’ button, each table has a button you can buzz when your tumbler is running low.

As you’d expect, rum is the star of the show here, and the bar boasts expressions from all over the world. Laki Kane even makes its own upstairs and offers guests the chance to blend their own spiced rums on site. Cocktails come in quirky vessels adorned with orchids and bamboo shoots.
