Psst! There’s an enchanting tropical oasis in the heart of Britomart. Yep, hidden away up a staircase in Britomart you’ll stumble upon Talulah—an intimate tiki bar that will magically transport you to a South Pacific paradise. And trust us when we say: the cocktails are totally tiki-tastic!
Found just above The Chamberlain in Britomart (the old Tyler Street Garage FYI), Talulah takes inspo from the tiki bars of 1950s LA. You’ll find yourself surrounded by lush tropical foliage, twinkling fairy lights and palette of bright, Insta-worthy colours. There’s also a beautiful leafy mural showcasing a dreamy Hawaiian-esque scene.
The tiki theme continues across the drinks menu with island-inspired cocktails made with fresh juices, house-made syrups and—of course—plenty of rum. Sip on the likes of the espresso explosion (pumpkin-infused rum, cold brew coffee and condensed milk), sexy colada (rum, ginger, coconut and pineapple), or the unmissable Donovan’s reef starring popcorn-infused spiced rum.
If you’re visiting with your squad, they’ve got shared cocktails that serve two to four people (we love the Jaguar bowl topped with a lily pad). And, if you’re in for a big night ahead, their zombie cocktails are big and oh-so boozy—so much so that there’s a max of two per customer!
Each and every cocktail is unique in its own right, served in fab vessels with quirky garnishes. You’ll be drinking from oh-so ‘grammable coconuts, tiki heads and pineapples. The cocktails are then topped with paper umbrellas, flaming shots and cute-as-a-button Tic Tac containers.
Time your visit with Talulah’s much-loved happy hour—aka tiki time. Kicking off between 4pm and 7pm, you’ll find a daily cocktail for just $10 (yes, $10!). Drink your way through the days of the week with Tuesday mai tais, Wednesday city roots, Thursday dark’n’stormys and Friday daiquiris. Then visit again on Saturdays for double mimosas—that’s one for you and one for your BFF!
Keep tabs on Talulah’s Facebook-slash-Instagram for ALL the best quirky events and specials. Boasting a mantra of “fun is mandatory”, they’re known for throwing full moon parties, tiki cocktail masterclasses and live music. The fun times just keep on coming!
So, what are you waiting for? Make a beeline for this secret tiki bar and let Talulah enchant you with her magic. You’re in for a tiki-tastic night ahead!
