Situated in the luxurious penthouse of one of Hong Kong’s most exclusive addresses, Mahalo offers a relaxing – yet sophisticated – taste of Tiki culture right in the heart of bustling and busy Hong Kong. From the moment you walk in the door of Mahalo, you feel far removed from the metropolis outside its doors, as the authentic and painstakingly-sourced Tiki interior immediately takes you to a place full of graceful swaying palms and the gentle sounds of a ukulele being strummed beachside. The cocktail list has been given the same attention to detail as the interior design, with Mahalo offering all manner of tropical escapes, each and every one served in authentic retro Tiki glassware. Classics like Zombies, Pina Coladas, and Mai Tais are of course on offer, made from only the finest fresh ingredients, but it’s the creative new concoctions that seamlessly blend old and new that will have you coming back. Paramount on this list are South Pacific-inspired stars like the Coco Mash; whiskey, cloves, coconut milk, date syrup, apple juice, and cinnamon, and the Honi Penny; spiced rum, black raspberry, sherry, lime, sugar, and a dash of bitters. In addition to individual cocktails, Mahalo offers shareable rum punches and their own house-made range of barrel-aged liquors. And don’t worry, if you catch a case of island fever and start to miss the city, the lights of Hong Kong are just a stroll to the breezy terrace away.
