London’s new tiki bar, Mahiki, opened just a couple of days ago. Some speak preview pictures have been posted to Tiki Central, and the place looks dark and elegant — just how I like my tiki bars! I’m eager to hear some reports now that it’s open to the public. Mahiki’s location at 1 Dover Street in Mayfair is just a few blocks from where the Mayfair Beachcomber once was. Legend has it that Joseph Banks, a botanist who gained his fame as part of Captain Cook’s 1768 expedition to Tahiti, stayed at 1 Dover Street and regaled visitors with tales of his South Seas adventures while mixing drinks with rum and botanicals he had collected.

Cheekytiki is throwing a party at Mahiki on November 10, starting at 6:30 p.m. From Tiki Chris:

    Hey, I’m excited about Mahiki too, but Trader Vic’s has been in Mayfair since the Sixties.
