Mahiki has now also opened up a venue in Kensington: Mahiki Kensington
Mahiki Club London is not known as the ultimate party destination for nothing. If you are looking for a place with amazing Polynesian Tiki décor, amazing cocktails, and tropical flowers, but with modern music and an elite guest list, this is where you need to be. It is world famous and has accumulated many awards over the years it has existed.
Boasting guests from A-listers, to sports stars, to the Royal Family, the Mahiki club attracts the best of all walks of life to its little corner of Dover Street, where it stands proudly as arguably the best exclusive club in Mayfair, not to mention one of the most vibrant and most popular clubs in London. With such amazing guests it is no surprise that Mahiki is highly exclusive. It has seen celebrities such as Drake, Rihanna, Kelly Rowland, Amanda Seyfried, Lady Gaga and Paris Hilton. After England's princes have been somewhere, the standard of clientele always spikes. So don't think you can just walk up looking like anything and get in. The décor might be pure island, but the dress code is pure class: smart dresses, high heels, sexy skirts, smart shirts, and shiny leather shoes are all important.
Sit down in their trendy bamboo chairs and enjoy the adorable islander themed furnishings, from seashell lamps and totem poles to treasure chests and tropical plants. You may not be in Hawaii but that is no reason not to feel like you are there. The broad array of sweet tropical cocktails will be served in Tiki mugs, coconut shells, and little treasure chests. And the drinks themselves are to die for, absolutely unique and delectable. The Mahiki in London really offers a unique clubbing experience beyond your wildest imagination. It will brighten your day and bring a smile to your face, no matter how dreary and grey the rest of London may seem. It is also a less energetic, more mature club, where you will be expected to act with class and grace. No teenagers romping around and breaking things.
The venue is also an amazing romantic location, allowing for more talk and dancing than some venues which can get too busy for intimacy. Snuggle up in handmade princess chairs, among hand-carved Tiki figurines, and sip on intoxicatingly sweet cocktails as you get to know your partner and bond over this exclusive experience. The lighting is very flattering and the music is not oppressively loud. And the exotic foods only add to this quality. Sit back and enjoy their world famous fishbowls and treasure chests with your loved one. The mixologist's special drinks are sure to tickle your tastebuds and put a smile on your face.
The venue has no true VIP rooms or areas. Hosting up to 300 guests, if you are in Club Mahiki, you are already a member of London's elite. The exclusive vibe and more reserved pace seems to bring out the best in everyone. But if you want a truly exclusive experience, you may want to consider booking the entire version, so that your party can become your own Polynesian utopia.
THE DRESS CODE AT MAHIKI MAYFAIR
Dress codes can be confusing, so let us help you with our detailed, visual guides!
What is recommended:
The recommended look is the best one not just to get you in, but to make you feel at home.
Most people at the Mahiki clubs dress in a red carpet sexy style. Men generally wear button down shirts (with or without a t-shirt underneath), smart blue or black jeans, and smart shoes.
Women generally wear short cocktail dresses, plenty of sparkle, with their hair down, glamorous make up, simple jewellery (and not too much of it!) and high heeled shoes.
What is allowed:
The allowed clothes are the full range of what will get you through the door.
Red carpet sexy for men includes:
-button down shirts (most colours)
-short sleeve button down shirts
-two piece suits
-black and grey suit trousers
-smart blue or black jeans
-black or brown leather (or faux leather) shoes
-smart casual shoes (moccasins, loafers, etc)
Red carpet sexy for women includes:
-smart two piece outfits
-crop tops with miniskirts or leggings
-2-8" high heels
What is a grey area:
The grey area are clothes that might be allowed some days/events and not others, or that are at the discretion of door staff. In short, if you happen to be in the area, wearing these clothes and want to check the club out, then maybe see if you can. You might get lucky. But if you are actually planning a night here? Avoid these and go for something closer to the dress code.
Women's business attire is a grey area. A pant suit is a good look, but don't go too formal.
T-shirts are a grey area. Although worn under a button down shirt they are fabulous, they are not recommended on their own.
Men's jewellery is a grey area. Generally a little subtle jewellery is fine, but it is better to avoid it if in doubt.
What is forbidden:
These clothes will get you turned away at the door, even if you are on the guest list, have a table with bottle service reserved, and it's your birthday. Sorry.
No sportswear. Not even fashion pieces. And definitely no trainers.
No sandals or flip flops. Women may wear strappy "spartan sandal" high heels, but no true to type sandals.
No bright suit jackets or trousers. Although they don't mind you getting creative with shirt colours, a suit colour that is too bold will get you turned away.
No "bling" or statement jewellery. It is not considered inkeeping with the atmosphere of the venue. Please try and wear small and delicate pieces.
No distressed look clothes. Nothing torn, worn, or stained. Not even as a statement piece.
No oversized coats, hats, or large bags. Please take them off and check them in at the cloakroom.
