Kanaloa: an informal Polynesian paradise in the heart of the City, relentlessly dedicated to fun.

A sister bar of Mayfair’s Mahiki, the similarities are clear: the long black bamboo bar; the carved wooden pillars; the lampshades made from exotic shells; the tiki-style lounge; the crazy paving stone floor.

The club, if you’re looking to dance (and you will be), features large elevated booths and a colour changing ceiling. The Treetops, for something a little more subdued, offer a retreat enveloped by giant palm trees, tropical leaf patterned walls and rustic wooden planking.

Drinks from Kanaloa’s big cocktail list come served in appropriately quirky glassware, and there’s a crowd-pleasing range of huge sharing cocktails available – from “Maui’s Chest of Fire” (serving 10) to the Octopus Punch and, best of all, the Dead Man’s Chest (brought to the table via an all-out voodoo funeral procession from the bar to your table).

Don’t worry. We’re assured that whatever saw him off isn’t catching.


NOTE: Kanaloa is open Tues-Sat until 3am. You can make a booking, and find out more, HERE.
