The resurgence of tropical drinks and tiki bars is thankfully becoming a worldwide phenomenon. We've been watching new bars spring up in the United States, Australia, and UK.
Tiki Talk reader Martin just tipped us off to Hula, a new bar which opened in Manchester. From the website:
Prepare to be dazzled by our heavenly collection of delightful drinks!
An establishment of Technicolour fantasies, palate-teasing concoctions, splashes of good fortune and over 100 of the finest imported rums. Even the most hardy bar frequenter will be spoilt for choice and transported to other, more heavenly worlds..
The environment is akin to that of an elaborate beach hut with a capacity of 200 and the feel is fun, eclectic and cosy. Design elements such as the sand and palm tree inspired wallpaper, stone fronted bar, out-sized tropical fish tank and Tiki-inspired artifacts and wall hangings have been sourced from across the globe. The overall look offers a slice of pure escapism transporting guests to the island tropics.
100 rums?! God save the Queen!
