Laki Kane | Islington Tiki Bar
Laki Kane doesn’t look like it’s going to be lacking in anything.
Opening on Islington’s Upper Street this June, it’s going to be a two-floor, plush, tropical tiki bar paradise filled with rush roofing, rope ladders, tables with ‘call for service’ buttons, and looooots of rum. They’ll even have an on-site micro distillery to re-distilling their own rums, as well as a lab to make their own tropical syrups, bitters, liqueurs and vermouths.
The cocktail bar. Here, you can find rum-based cocktails mixed with “fruits that most people have never tried or even heard of”, including the likes of soursop, cupuassu, cashew nut fruit, jack fruit, snake fruit. And they’ll all be served in theatrical, unusual drinking vessels (as is tradition at any good tiki bar).
That micro-distillery is going to be used for their Spiced Dry Rum Club, held upstairs. Here you can spend a three-hour masterclass guided by rum experts who’ll walk you through a unique re-distillation process so you can create your own bespoke bottle of rum, and take it home afterwards.
NOTE: Laki Kane is due open in June 2018. We’ll be back then with the full scoop. In the meantime, you can find out more at their website right HERE.
