‘OHANA, Ireland’s first Tiki bar, is pleased to announce the opening of its doors on Dublin’s Harcourt Street this Friday, January 17th.

'OHANA describes itself as an exotic, stylish and contemporary take on traditional Tiki rum bars. The new bar focuses on unique rum cocktails with a Caribbean flare, while always adding an Irish Twist.

It will offer over 300 Rums, including the most exclusive Bacardi Family range to ever hit the Irish market. Some of the finest selection of rums in Europe will be stocked, including Chai Rum, an ultra-premium offering from Trinidad and Tobago, as well as their own ‘OHANA blended offerings.

In addition to original rum creations, 'OHANA also offers a wide selection of classic cocktails and drinks, mastered to the bar’s own interpretation. Notably, there is a strong focus on the use of Irish spirits, such as Slingshot Gin, Glendalough Whiskey, Kalak Vodka, Tullamore Dew XO and many more.

Tiki bars began in the United states in the 1930s and are based on Polynesian culture, style and ethos. ‘OHANA means ‘family’ in Hawaiian culture and is an independently run venue, with experienced operators Doug Leddin, Will Lynch and Paddy Noir leading the venture.

The inspiration for the bar’s standout design comes from a mix of Polynesian influences, including Hawaii and Easter Island. The colour palette is a combination of teals and crystal blue, evoking images of the clear blue Pacific Ocean.

Key design features include oversized palm leaves and pineapples printed onto custom wallpaper, bamboo cladding, Tiki heads and Easter Island statues. The bar’s opening hours are Monday to Friday, 5pm – Late, and Saturday and Sunday, 3pm – Late. With weekly DJ’s and monthly live music.

Speaking about introducing this new rum focus to Dublin, General Manager, Will Lynch said, "At ‘OHANA we wanted to bring the spirit of Tiki to our guests – focusing on a relaxed and fun atmosphere, standout hospitality and exotic drinks and surroundings that allow you to escape. Gin has been a huge success in recent times, but we believe that rum will be the next big wave. We will be constantly working to curate an amazing cocktail menu, sourcing rare fruits and ingredients from around the world."
