Nick House and Piers Adam joined forces with Sarah Harding and Tom Crane to open Kanaloa. Essentially another tiki bar from the founders of Mahiki, it's named from the Tiki God of the Sea and meant to bring Polynesia to the tired banker of the City with endless Beach Boy tunes. Unlike some of their other spots, this one is defiantly egalitarian but with all the same thought given to kitsch. Flowers, plants, carvings, a wooden bridge and seashell lampshades. Granted no desert hideaway has a club area like this or the "Treetops", a rainforest "styled" retreat intended for guests to hide away within while drinking Papa Jules' signature Mahiki rum in cocktails, such as the Kanaloa Kula (said rum with star anise, pomegranate Spanish cava.) Of course they have the requisite share cocktai;, the Octopus Punch (meant for eight though you can attempt it by yourself.) Or for humour, order the Dead Manís Chest which is brought to your table via a full blown voodoo funeral procession. Because they're concerned that the City chaps will have no female company, Kanaloa teases them there with free entry for ladies, complimentary manicures, massages and makeovers.
