Girls Aloud's Sarah Harding will join Mahiki founders Nick House and Piers Adam for the launch of their new venture, Kanaloa, a Polynesian-themed tiki bar with event facilities
Entrepreneurs Nick House and Piers Adam, as well as partners Sarah Harding and her DJ boyfriend Tom Crane, will be present at the launch of the party destination.
Kanaloa, which will be available for event hire from 6-10pm on weekdays, takes its name from the Tiki God of the Sea.
It will offer retro touches inspired by the Beach Boys music. Design features include tiki carvings, bamboo and a wooden bridge.
A long black bamboo bar at the venue will be surrounded by carved wooden pillars and lampshades made from exotic seashells.
The lounge will have a crazy paving stone floor and rattan screens providing "discreet hideaways placed at intervals throughout".
"Piers and I have both worked in the City and we felt there was a real need to create a sense of escapism and fun in an area that historically hasn't had the benefit of high quality bars and nightclubs. We are extremely excited about the launch and are honoured to be working with a superstar like Sarah," said co-founder House.
