If you can’t jet off for a tropical holiday this summer, just head to Islington instead as new cocktail bar Laki Kane will be bringing the heat to Upper Street. The cocktail menu is heavy on the rums, sugar cane syrups and exotic ingredients – the signature Laki Kane is made of Bacardi Cuatro Dark Rum, Mozart Dry Chocolate Vodka, soursop tea, cupuacu, guanabana and sugar cane juice – with a food menu to match. Dishes will include flatbread with guac, spiced tomato & coriander and rum creme fraiche dips; charred papaya and lime salad, fruits de mer; and rum-based puds. Rum masterclasses will also be held in the upstairs Spiced Dry Rum Club bar, where you’ll learn about the history of the spirit, experiment with tastings and even re-distill your own rum, which you can even re-order in the future. We’ll drink to that.
Opens Fri 6th July 2018
144-145 Upper St London, N1 1QY
