Mexico City, March 6, 2020.- Waikiki Tiki Room celebrates its first anniversary with five takeovers of some of the best bars in Mexico and in the world. Along one year of immersing its visitors in a tropical environment inspired by the Polynesian islands, cocktails with exotic tiki themes and an American diner menu, Waikiki has won national and foreign adherents and today is recognized as one of the best bars of Mexico.
The only bar in Mexico City that introduces you in the mythical Tiki culture began its anniversary celebrations with The Parrot Shadow, bar from Lima, Peru, with whom Waikiki shares a lot in terms of cocktails, also of tiki inspiration.
The second takeover was carried out by Licorería Limantour -the tenth on The World’s 50 Best Bars list- with a sample of cocktails prepared with mezcal San Cosme. The following takeovers consider guest bars such as El Gallo Altanero from Guadalajara, Mexico; Jungle Bird from San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Laki Kane from London, England.
Wednesday, March 11: Jungle Bird, San Juan, Puerto Rico (to be confirmed).
Wednesday, March 18: El Gallo Altanero, Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.
Thursday, March 19: Laki Lane, London, England.
“We will celebrate Waikiki’s first anniversary as we like the most: promoting global cocktail trends in Mexico and sharing our love for tiki-style mixology. That’s why we open our bar to show the proposal of world-class bars like The Parrot Shadow, Licorería Limantour, Laki Kane and Jungle Bird”, said Walter Meyenberg, owner of Waikiki Tiki Room.
Waikiki’s regular cocktail menu consists of 25 cocktails: 11 classic recipes and 14 signature drinks created exclusively by bartenders from other world famous bars. Now, with this celebration, Waikiki Tiki Room will be a sideboard where cocktail lovers can try recipes created by the best bartenders on the planet in honor of its first anniversary.
“Waikiki Tiki Room is inspired by the period when Tiki culture changed the way people see Hawaii around the world. In our place we want that, everyone who visits it, starts a tropical and mysterious trip that remembers the 50s and the California madness for everything related to Hawaii; this is through a fabulous interior design, a disruptive graphic identity and a strong cocktail proposal”, mentioned the also founder of concepts Huset and Hanky Panky.
A stop at Waikiki Tiki Room is like travel at a ship cabin, an ideal moment to take a break, chill out and forget the city chaos, just to being carried away by its magnificent cocktails and its cuisine proposal in the style of an American diner in which the tropical hints never lacks.
