"Mahiki [London] was opened in October 2006 as the brainchild of Piers Adam, David Phelps and Nick House, and has grown to become one of the world’s most famous night spots as well as an institution, with an array of fabulous awards behind it. Named after the Polynesian path to the underworld.
The bar is famed for its ‘Tiki’ Polynesian themed interiors, including a beach styled lounge… lit with an atmospheric glow. The cocktails, which are world renowned, attract rum enthusiasts from all over the globe to come down and party in either our Lanai Lounge or Aloha Party Room.
Mahiki is a celebrity hotspot that has attracted media attention from royal favourites such as Princes William and Harry, as well as other public figures like Kate Middleton, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Kelly Rowland, Paris Hilton, Kate Moss, Beyonce, Jay-Z, Kim Kardashian and many other A list celebrities.
At Mahiki Manchester, The Polynesian, Party Palace of The North West, we provide a unique themed service for all your party and event needs, with a wealth of Nightclub events on offer, spread across our Bar Room & Night Club Room, to give some of the best and hedonistic parties that Manchester has to offer."
