An admission: we’re confessed tiki fans. Give us rum punch and bartenders in Hawaiian shirts and we’ll happily start the party. With its tropical decor, rattan furniture and sharing cocktails served in sailing boats, Sugar Cane fits the tiki trend perfectly – and behind the fun exterior are some fine drinks. Catch the South Pacific vibe with enticing rum classics: from an exemplary Mai Tai made with Appleton VX, to the Black Bottom: a turbo-charged twist on a Dark & Stormy featuring Gosling’s Black Seal. Gin-lovers can indulge in a Hula Girl (Beefeater, lychee, passion fruit and lime) while fruity Voodoo Punch works its black magic with Tequila, maraschino cherry liqueur, strawberry, cranberry, lime and guava. If cocktail umbrellas aren’t your bag, try proper Pacific beer: Brazilian Brahma or Cuban Palma Cristal. Decent bar snacks include generous platters with spicy piri-piri wings, crispy spring rolls and chorizo fried with potato slices.
