Tiki-themed bar opens in Chelsea

A new Tiki-inspired bar has opened in Chelsea, with the launch of Kona Kai.

Named after the Hawaiian term for "Lady of the Sea", the 350-cover Kona Kai features an oasis-style interior, decked out in bamboo and palm trees, with the main bar area featuring a wooden carved canoe suspended from the ceiling, alongside shell-covered lamps and puffer fish lanterns. Other design features include wooden carvings in the shape of masks and spears and tropical flower motifs used throughout the venue.

Kona Kai offers a range of rum-based, South Pacific-themed cocktails such as the Missionary's Downfall, Pele, Mai-Tai and Pinã Colada as well as signature cocktails such as Muu Muu, a combination of white rum, lychees and rose syrup, and the Summer Sling, a blend of Zubrowka bison grass vodka, crushed mint and cucumber, shaken with apple sours, lemon juice and Guanabana juice.

Meanwhile, a simple menu offers starters such as Hawaiian grilled pineapple, honey and smoked bacon skewers, and islander's seafood salad and crispy prawns; as well as larger dishes such as New Zealand green shell mussels in lime red curry and coconut milk, and the Kona Kai sharing platter with lamb and red onion skewers, jerk chicken, and vegetable spring rolls.
