This summer, Kraken Rum invites you to delve into the darker side of tiki once more as the Kraken Rum Freaky Tiki bar returns for 2018.
The history of tiki, its mythological side, has almost become lost amongst the hula girls, grass skirts, cocktail umbrellas and Hawaiian shirts.
But trust us, there’s something a little freaky going on with tiki.
Kanaloa, the tiki god of evil, death and the underworld, is symbolised by the squid, much like the revered Kraken. There are also cannibals, ghost dogs, wrestling and bone breaking gods. Tiki is shrouded in a multitude of myths and legend.
We will be embracing the esoteric at our cocktail bar. Imagine the giant, mythical Kraken has risen out of the sea to completely engulf a tiki bar with its giant tentacles and dragged it, stools and all, down into the sea.
We want to invite you to step into our sub-sea underworld. Kick back in the Kraken’s lair, sample our signature drinks and darkly twisted versions of classic summer cocktails – like the ‘Perfect Storm’ [Kraken Rum, ginger beer and lime] or the ‘Poison Apple’ [Kraken Rum, lemon juice, ginger syrup and cider].
When the sun goes down, and day turns to night, we’ll be unleashing the spirit of the Kraken with DJ’s and live percussion and a few surprises thrown in for good measure. Get your best Freaky Tiki face on for a chance to win some bounty and you won’t want to miss the ‘Awakening of the Kraken’ ceremony every night.
Come and join us at Freaky Tiki and you’ll soon start to appreciate the darker side of summer.
Find us at Browckwell Park, London from 1st to 2nd June at Field Day.
