This is what the Tiki culture is all about, and imbibed by the “Tiki Maestro” Daniele Dalla Polla (owner of Nu Bar in Bologna).
Samba in Shangri-la at the Fort is partnering with the lively, multi-awarded showman (and his renowned tiki drinks) from 14-16 February 2018 (8pm onwards).
Here’s the thing though: I wanted to do justice to this article by capturing the energy of the man, and quite honestly, I will fail at using the written word. Instead, I’ll let him do the talking (and entertaining) through videos and photos. 😉
Now that he has given a little insight on the history of Tiki, here’s a look at some of the cocktails he made during the event:
Here’s another thing I learned from the Maestro: Filipinos are involved un furthering the tiki cocktail culture through Mariano Licudine, bartender of Mai-Kai in Florida (a tiki-themed restaurant operating since 1955). It is the last restaurant that still maintains the service and cocktails designed by Don the Beachcomber.
And of course, every good bar event is ended with a party!
To totally imbibe in the island life, enjoy Dalla Polla’s cocktails (and company!) with delicious Peruvian food in Samba. For inquiries and reservations, call +632 820 0888, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I don’t know about you but now I wanna have a tiki!
Special thanks to Ms. Sam Gallardo and Ms. Enah Baba of Shangri-la at the Fort
