Manchester Lola Lo opened its doors on Thursday 12th December, 2013. It is one of several in a chain of Lola Lo bar/restaurants (Bristol, Cambridge, Manchester, and Reading).
From their website:
"A tiki-tavern where raucous parties reign supreme, Lola Lo is brimming with luscious cocktails, late night artisans and party hearty dance floors. A 560 capacity venue containing three levels: a lower ground floor, a ground floor and a mezzanine, creating a multiple-tiered tiki paradise. With DJs playing in the evenings and through the night, exotic, beach-themed drinks and live entertainment, Lola Lo breathes a fresh vibrancy into the Deansgate Locks scene. Additional unique features such as a fancy dress box and a casual dining operation, serving delicious artisan savoury and dessert pizzas and tasty beer cocktails. "
As of 2021-2022, this location is light on tiki decor with only one Moai statue in sight and some tropical leaf wallpaper. Several large television screens playing football do little to convey the island vibe either.
A side-by-side with an earlier 2013 photo of Cheeky Tiki's decoration when they first opened the bar shows that they originally had more of a tiki theme.
They do still carry several imprinted tiki mugs by CheekyTiki for the mug enthusiast.
