New Tiki Bar & Club in Brighton

Lola Lo is the newest Tiki Bar to hit the UK.  They opened their doors in Brighton on July 1st.  According to a recent Twitter post Lola Lo will be open this Friday at 5:00 PM and will be offering half price cocktails until 10:00 PM.  

Their drink menu includes many of the Tiki standards such as the Mai Tai, Singapore Sling, Zombie, and Blue Lagoon.  They also offer up some Tiki bowls including their, "Easter Island Surprise", which sounds delicious.  The full menu can be found on their website lolalobrighton.com.  Also, on their website are pictures of Lola Lo's.  It looks like a nice mix of modern and classic Tiki.  I sure hope to check this place out in person someday. If you get there I'd love to hear about it.  Post a comment below or send me a message on Facebook or Twitter. Mahalo!
