Maka Hiki Lounge by Honi Tiki Cocktail Lounge, Asia’s first tiki bar, has launched at The Upper House this January, creating an unrivalled city escape with a day-to-night concept that draws crowds from hotel guests to passers-by. Open from now until 31 May 2021, the pop-up offers an extensive menu of drinks and bar bites inspired by islands from around the world, as well as regular events, giving everyone the opportunity to experience this sophisticated spin on tiki culture.
Meaning “new beginning”, this unique collaboration, located within the lush greenery of The Lawn and Level 6, is an elegant tiki haven with two distinct personalities. From early morning 8am, Maka Hiki Lounge is a one-of-a-kind alternative all-day café serving light breakfast and daily specials, with teas from homegrown brand Plantation by teakha, CBD-infused beverages, and “12 Noon” juices, to satisfy all tastes.
From 12pm to 11pm daily, Maka Hiki Lounge and The Upper House kitchen team present refreshing bar bites, featuring Poké Miso Cones, Cubano Pulled Pork Sandwich, Cod Fish Acras, Jamaican Jerk Chicken Skewers, BBQ Pineapple Beef Mini Burgers and more. For sweets, Maka Hiki Lounge introduces its Rhum Baba infused in a delicious and aromatic rum syrup. A specially curated wine selection is also available.
Sundown brings a wide collection of rums and a selection of Honi Honi’s signature cocktails to the table, including Honi Collins (HK$120) , The Four Wise Monkeys (HK$120) and Bikini Girl (HK$120). Original Maka Hiki Lounge creations such as the tequila-based Tik Tok Tiki (HK$140), The Dead Shaman (HK$160) made with baijiu and homemade falernum liqueur, Angry Pirate (HK$150) consisting of a combination of rums, or the founders’ personal favourite, the Maka Hiki Punch (HK$180), created with the freshest available ingredients with a tropical twist. Craft beers Moonzen and Young Master from Hong Kong and Kona from Hawaii are also offered.
A variety of lively events will be hosted and open to the public, including Naugh’tiki Tuesdays, Wine Not Wednesdays, exclusive Cigar and Rum Tastings, Tiki Cocktail Clubs, a fun behind-the-bar cocktail making workshop led by a tiki cocktail expert, and monthly Guest Bartending Shifts from Hong Kong’s most prominent mixologists as part of the MHD World Class Series.
Honi Managing Director, Max Traverse said, “We are very excited to collaborate with The Upper House – providing a sanctuary for people who are craving a sense of escapism from the bustling city and their everyday lives. Maka Hiki Lounge was designed around the reinvention of the classic tiki concept and represents a sophisticated ‘tiki-chic’ Polynesian vibe with timber and bamboo, with an unmissable outdoor terrace showcasing an oasis of lavish greenery. The exciting events that we have lined up will also give people the opportunity to experience tiki culture in the heart of the city.”
Those looking to extend their escape at the oasis, can enjoy a luxurious staycation at The Upper House. Priced from HK$2,880 up, “24-Hours at Our House” includes a one-night stay, daily set breakfast for two, a round of drinks at Maka Hiki Lounge and more.
