Life is chaotic; we all need to escape. And what better way to grab an escape than in the midst of the boisterous city we (can’t help but) love so much?
Laki Kane has more than proved that paradise doesn’t have to be an overly expensive and tediously long-haul flight away. Instead, they’ve shown us that paradise can sit right at your door, so long as you have the right setting, the right people and, most importantly, the right vibe.
Built from scratch by the more than capable hands of Georgi Radev – the man who ran Mahiki bars for eleven years, Steve Kyprianou – an Islington businessman with an ora of energy and Sam Robson – an Australian native with a thirst for all things Laki Kane, this exciting new, tropic escape has flourished since its opening date in July. Attracting nothing but top-line attention from locals and tourists alike, we ventured down to see what the rage was about.
What you see is not what you get with Laki Kane – you get so much more. No image alone can prepare you for the breath of fresh air you will undoubtedly take when stepping into the escape. From the welcoming staff at the door and the incredible decor to the feel-good music and eye-brightening energy of the bartenders, you’ll feel a wave of relaxation wash over you. And the feel-good aspect doesn’t end here.
Dedicated to bringing only the best, Laki Kane is one step ahead of every bar in London. They are firm believers that purity is a whole part of feeling good, which is why they only use all-natural sugars (hallelujah). In fact, Laki Kane is the first bar in the WORLD to create all of their drinks without using any refined sugars at all (more of the good and none of the bad – THANK YOU!). Producing their artisanal syrups in-house via their very own sugar cane mill, you can be assured that all the sweetness and flavour is natural and delicious. With the bar led by the great that is Timmy Falzon, you can simply ask him (or any bartender) for recommendations to suit your own palate.
The Laki Kane food and drink menus are both extensive, offering the most amazing cocktails and adventurous foods suitable for all dietary requirements. In touch with the tech gods, simply press the button at your table for speedy, smiley service.
