Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Downstairs from its sister restaurant The Kitsch Inn, inventive basement spot The Tiki Bar serves unique and well balanced cocktails in a lively party atmosphere. The bar itself sits in the corner of the dimly lit room and is a beachy wooden structure complete with a thatched roof which would not look out of a place at a tropical beachside bar. The DJ booth is kitted out in the same stylings, and patrons can expect to hear a mix of house and dance music on Friday and Saturday nights when the place really comes to life. Cocktails are playfully named and the brightly coloured menu features faux-quotes from some of Scotland’s greatest exports. Most drinks arrive served in one of the bar’s legendary tall ceramic tiki mugs, or decanted into a can over crushed ice, rarely in a glass. Tropical nods are everywhere on the menu although not to the detriment of the drinks selection. Rum and ginger are popular details from a menu which casts a wide net and artfully avoids overly fruity mixes. Staff are upbeat and unpretentious, happy to get on with the business of making excellent cocktails.
