Kanaloa is the perfect tropical after work oasis for all you city dwellers! After a particularly busy week, CL Events thought it was about time we sampled some Kanaloa Cocktails for ourselves!
As you enter you are given a flower garland, and as you step in further you truly feel you have been transported to a Hawaiian holiday resort, well, sort of, if you ignore all the suits around!
Happy hour, or as I should call it ‘ Club Tropicana’, is from 4 – 8pm weeknights including Fridays, and is definitely worth a visit.
Selected cocktails are 50 % off and if you book a table for 5 or more, you receive a free platter of food! CL of course, like a good deal, so were looking forward to our complimentary nibbles! After prompting the very over worked bar staff 4 or 5 times, our free platter finally arrived at 7.58 pm… leading us to think perhaps they offered this great deal as not many people actually end up receiving it. Either way, the food, paired with a Coco Mismo cocktail really hit the spot. A word of warning though! The decorative chilli placed on the platter is NOT for the faint hearted! But definitely justifies ordering a second cocktail to cool your mouth down! Kanaloa does boast the most impressive cocktails CL have seen. Maui’s Chest of Fire, a cocktail for 10 presented in treasure chests with sparklers, was our particular favourite, and we enjoyed the show put on by the Hula dancers who brought it out.
The music was a good mix, and whilst the dance floor was very small and over crowded, the blend of current chart music with other ‘holiday’ tunes such as Paul Simon, Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie saw us have a great time.
It was agreed, once our mouths had cooled down from the Chilli, that Kanaloa was a Tropical hit!
