After knocking back several poison chalices and dancing yourself dizzy to star turns such as Paloma Faith, you might even gain a moment of fame as you're snapped by the paps leaving Mahiki at 3am. Beloved of royals, rapscallions, reality-show regulars, flash footballers and cosmetically enhanced wannabes, this starburst venue continues to blaze. The drinks – many based on a selection of distinguished rums – are every bit as hula as the venue's Honolulu/Krakatoa kitsch theme. Cocktails with names like ‘good time girl' say it all, while party animals can splash their cash (£135 to be exact) on lavish treasure chests (brandy, peach liqueur and Moët) or brass monkeys – coconut cannonballs filled with tobacco-infused Bacardi, brandy cacao, coconut and spices. To eat, expect ribs, tempura, pancake rolls and sliders a go-go; otherwise, head upstairs to Carl Clarke’s new Rock Lobsta restaurant.
