22 COLQUITT STREET
We were invited by our fav bar Aloha to attend the Havana Club summer party and seeing as we are there practically every weekend anyway, we thought why not. We invited one of our dedicated followers Chris to make up the numbers as Sarah had abandoned us to go “darn sarf” (London) for a dirty weekend. She will be sorely disappointed to discover they don’t even have chips and gravy in the chippies there! Anyway off we popped to Liverpool’s very own hidden gem, our sneaky tiki bar Aloha.
When we arrived we were festooned with Fedoras to help get us in the Cuban mood but you can’t not get into the swing of things in Aloha which is Hawaiian/Polynesian themed decorated with lei flower garlands, bamboo,stone statues and tiki grafitti. Tonight was all about the Cuban vibe with a specially crafted Havana rum cocktail menu with a purse friendly 20% off before 11pm. The music was was live from a Cuban band and they certainly got the party started. Friday nights are usually pretty chilled at Aloha but the place was soon filled with people enjoying the strawberry mojitos (Cuban Cobbler) in elephant head cups and rum and ginger Havana iced tea cocktails in Havana tin cans. Our fav was always going to be the famous Zombie, named so because they leave you unable to remember your own name which is always fun.
Our hostess extraordinaire Rebecca (super cute!!) kept the drinks coming fast and we were soon “Havana ball” (geddit? geddit?) We threw plenty of shapes on the dance floor and before we were thrown out ourselves we limbo danced off into the night.
Thanks Aloha for a boss night and thanks Havana club for our sore heads the next day.
Love the Scousescran girls (and Chris) x
