hey all
If you are ever in London check out SOUTH LONDON PACIFIC on kennington road. It's been open about 2 years. It's neo-Tiki with lots of well-done fiberglass /wood idols, Bamboo and thatching everywhere, even bamboo furniture. They've got a little dance floor, a DJ booth( where the DJ was playing pop/dance), a lower level with a foos ball table and a pinball machine. There are even 2 palm trees out front (how they survive is anyone's guess). The bartenders were great and were technically very good. Their menu had about 22 drinks incl. classics, their own mixtures, drinks with bourbon, SoCo, etc. We tried 6-7 different ones and they were all good. They served food til 9pm as well. We were in town to play a few gigs and it was the first night I had off and had time for tiki hunting. Boy am I glad I picked this place instead of the Trader Vic's at the Hilton. No slight to TV, but I've been to a few of them and they're not all that different. It reminded me of my bar (Otto's Shrunken Head NYC). I felt very comfortable there.
