Mahalo Tiki Lounge brings Polynesian culture to Hong Kong

Situated in South Wan Chai on the top floor of QRE Plaza, Mahalo is a luxury bar and lounge where a sophisticated interpretation of the Tiki concept comes to life with retro vibes. The bar, lounge and open-air terrace offer sweeping views of the city and Mahalo's fresh Tiki cocktails are set to attract both connoisseurs and socialites.

Designed by Richard Moreau and Yacine Bensalem of Interior Architecture Company In Situ & Partners, the interior encompasses elements of Tiki culture such as earth, water, wind and fire. The space features vegetal, oceanic and floral components, with tropical plants situated throughout and intricately designed botanical wallpaper adorning the walls in the entrance and lounge. Bamboo is used extensively throughout, and 70's style Jensen light fixtures in the shape of palm trees stand as ‘island’ focal points.

Behind the bar, large circles and bubbles are a nod not only to the beverage industry, but to the avant-garde house of Pierre Cardin on the Cote d'Azur, a 70's design by Hungarian architect Antti Lovag. "Mahalo is a Hawaiian expression of gratitude and respect, which is what I want our guests to feel when they walk through the door," says founder Max Traverse
